One of the most loved kebabs in Indian restaurants around the world, the Hara Bhara Kebab is interestingly made with the humble spinach! Bound together by mashed chana dal, green peas and paneer, and flavoured with readily available spice powders and other ingredients like ginger and green chillies, this spinach-based kebab has the power to captivate young and old alike, thanks to its sumptuous texture and lingering flavour.
- Clean, wash and soak the chana dal for 1 hour and drain.

- Transfer into a bowl and add the paneer, salt, garam masala, chaat masala and ¼ cup bread crumbs, mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and shape each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) flat kebabs.
- Dip each kebab into the prepared flour- water paste and roll in the remaining bread crumbs.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and deep-fry them till they are golden brown in colour from both the sides.
