A very simple and crispy snack!There was an online cooking competition going on. The title was kababs. I wanted to participate in it but did not have enough time to try out other yummy recipes. There are a lot of yummy kabab recipes. I did not have chicken or some ingredients that are needed for trying out the other kababs. Only then, wanted to try out this kabab which uses only the basic ingredients. Above all, it is very easy to make. I tried it out, and it came out very well. My family loves this crispy snack, and even when I am so tired to make an evening snack, I make these crispy kababs. Sometimes, I use color powder. Forgot to mention, this kabab won a third place in the cooking competition. So, worth giving a try!
Boiled potatoes – 2 nos.
Boiled peas – 1/2 cup
Ginger – 1/2″
Green chillies – 2 nos.
Finely chopped coriander leaves – 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds (seeragam) – 1 teaspoon
Black pepper powder (milagu thool) – 1/4 teaspoon
Color – a pinch (optional) (I used red color)
Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
Oil – as desired
1. Grind ginger and green chillies.
2. In a pan, heat oil. When oil is hot, add cumin seeds. When cumin seeds pop up, add peas, ginger and green chillies paste, coriander leaves, salt, color powder (mix it with 1 tsp of water) and black pepper powder. Mix well. Switch off the stove and cool the mixture. Add color and mix well.
3. Add this mixture to the boiled potatoes and make kababs. Shape the kababs according to your wish. I have made it in round shape.
4. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the kababs until golden brown or grill the kababs. I have grilled them. Garnish using coriander leaves.
Now, Hara Bhara Kabab is ready!!!
