hara bhara kabab recipe | veg hara bhara kabab | Punjabi restaurant style hara bhara kabab | with 25 amazing images.

hara bhara kabab which is a veg hara bhara kabab is one of the most loved kabab in Indian restaurants around the world. The hara bhara kabab is a vegetarian kabab made from chana dal, green peas, paneer, spinach, plain flour, bread crumbs and Indian spices. You can deep-fry veg hara bhara kabab or shallow fry them on a tawa.

hara bhara kabab is 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 Punjabi restaurant style hara bhara kabab has the power to captivate young and old alike, thanks to its sumptuous texture and lingering flavour.

Tips on making the perfect hara bhara kabab. 1. Using a strainer, strain the chana dal. This is very important because if the mixture has too much water, it will not hold its shape when formed into kebabs. 2. Add the blanched spinach. Before adding see that you squeeze out excess water from the blanched and drained spinach. If you want you can add other green vegetables like coriander as well. 3.Blend in a blender till smooth using 1 -2 tbsp water if needed. Always add water little by little and keep checking and stirring the mixture. If the mixture becomes watery it will be difficult to shape the kebabs. 4. Add the bread crumbs and salt. This helps in binding the hara bhara kabab. Bread crumbs soak up the excess water and help the kebab stay in shape. We have used 1/3 cup approximately, but adjust the amount in accordance with how wet the mixture is. 5. Put the bread crumbs in a plate and then roll the tikki in the breadcrumbs. Always use one hand to dip the kebab in the flour-water mixture and the other hand to roll it in the breadcrumbs, this will give a smooth breadcrumbs coating on the kebab and the breadcrumbs will not become wet and soggy.

Serve the Hara Bhara Kabab as a starter or snack or wrap it up in a roti to make a Hara Bhara Tikki Roll and enjoy it as a satiating one-dish meal.

Tarla Dalal    Thanks for asking and the app is currently not going to be done in Hindi. This is because we are slowly building our Hindi recipes as we have translated to translate the entire data base from English which is a very long and expensive process. Maybe some day we will do it.

Hi. I want to make this one for my toddler''s school function. Is it okay if I serve them after 2 hours? Would they retain the taste and flavor? If not, please suggest some other recipe.
