Kale Chane ke Kebabs


Kale Chane ke Kebabs is a tasty and protein rich snack made using kale chane. Chanas are soaked overnight and then boiled. They are mixed with spices and chopped onion into a thick dough type batter. The balls from this batter are then deep-fried and served with tomato ketchup or coriander mint chutney.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this, every time it has been a winner. From V to his friends, relatives, family etc, they all love it. For us vegetarians, this is in close running for Best Kebabs, beside Hara Bhara Kebab & Dahi ke Kebab. As I’ve been singing praises of my mother’s food post after post, you guys must be sick of it, so I won’t bore you further – just suffice to say it is really awesome snack/ breakfast/ starter for drinks.
