Go Green Kababs

There are these typical restaurant style delicacies which we always order but avoid preparing it at home. For me Kababs go in this category. I always thought these require whole lot of hard work and I can never try at home. So when one of my colleague mentioned that she prepared this Moghlai Vegetarian Specialty Hara Bara Kabab for 20 odd guests at her place, I was amused, is it so simple ?IMG_3616

Yeah, she gave me the recipe in a single line --- Mix Palak + Potato + Peas and fry … Done!!

Obviously I had to try something so simple, so here it goes the above single line stretched to few more peculiar lines :P

You Need :

  • Spinach Leaves: About One Cup - Blanched
  • Potatoes: 2 Medium – Boiled and Mashed
  • Green Peas: About One Cup – ParboiledIMG_3610
  • Green Chilies: 3 finely chopped
  • Ginger: 1 inch - grated
  • Black Peppercorns: 4-5 Crushed
  • Chaat Masala: 2 tbsp
  • Corn flour: If required
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to Deep/ shallow Fry

You Do:

  1. Finely chop the blanched spinach leaves and mash it with potatoes and peas.
  2. Mix the chilies, ginger along with pepper and chaat masala.
  3. If this is thick dough type then no need to add corn flour, else add corn flour for binding. IMG_3611
  4. Make small tikkis out of the dough.
  5. Deep or Shallow fry, till it turns light brown color. 

Quite Simple, isn’t it? And a total crowd pleaser Green!IMG_3613
