Hara Bhara Kabab

Hi Friends ....
   Rainy season is there and tea with pakodas is such mouthwatering combo, but instead of pakodas I tired kabab (Hara Bhara Kabab)

3 boiled potatoes
1/2 cup boiled peas
1/2 cup boiled palak (spinach)
2 tbsp chopped coriander
1" grated ginger
2 tbsp cornflour
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp coriander powder
Salt according to taste
2 green chilies (finely chopped)
Oil for shallow fry


  • Put palak and peas in the grinder and grind coarsely.
  • Mash boiled potatoes nicely, no lumps formation should be there.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except oil.
  • Divide the mixture into equal quantity.
  • Grease your palms with oil, take one portion of the mixture make a smooth ball.
  • Press slightly to make tikki or kabab shape.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick and shallow fry all the kababs.

  • You can do deep frying too, but I prefer shallow fry.
  • Fry them till golden brown in colour.
  • Take them out on an absorbent paper.
  • Sprinkle chaat masala on top.
  • Serve hot with green coriander chutney.

Note: The mixture should be completely dry, for that drain excess amount of water from peas and spinach.
If you find that kabab mixture is still wet then add little bit of bread crumbs or roasted suji (semolina)....this will make kababs more crispy.
