Hara Bhara Kebab With Green Chickpeas Dip


Today 5th day of BM#13 under Kebab Theme……and here is my recipe “HaraBhara Kebab” which serves with Green Chickpeas Dip and Tomato Ketchup…….
My family loves this snack…….it’s color and taste both awesome…..really … and d├ęcor with halves of cashew nuts…
From the nutrition point of view: 
Chickpeas are a helpful source of zinc, folate and protein. they are also very high in dietary fiber and hence a healthy source of carbohydrates for persons with insulin sensitivity or diabetes.
Green veggies are full source of minerals and calcium…….and in this recipe, used green spinach, green chickpeas, green peas, green chilies and green coriander….all are green.
For binding, I had used corn-flour, bread crumbs and mashed potatoes……….







Ingredients
1 tbsp. boiled peas (mattar)
1 tbsp. boiled green chickpeas (hara chana or cholia)
15-20 spinach leaves (palak)
1 boiled potato (peel and mash)
1 green chilli (chopped)
1 tbsp. chopped green coriander
1 tsp. ginger (chopped)
½ tsp. cumin seed
½ tsp. raw mango powder (amchoor)
Salt to taste
½ tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. coriander powder
½ tsp. red chillies powder
2 tsp. corn-flour
1 tsp. bread crumbs
5-6 halves of cashews
Oil for shallow fry

Method
Wash and boil the peas and green chickpeas together in the pan for 10-15 minutes.
Wash and blanch the spinach leaves in 2 cup water. Then drain hot water and immediately transfer in cold water.  Slightly squeeze out water from spinach.
Add spinach leaves, boiled peas and chickpeas, green chillies, ginger and coriander leaves and blend it. Do not add water.
Transfer the blended paste in bowl and add mash potato, spices, corn-flour and bread crumb together and mix well.
Grease your palms lightly with oil and divide the mixture into equal 4-5 portions. Make smooth round shape kebab and press slightly to flatten a little. Gently press half of cashew nut at top of kebab.
Add enough oil in the pan for shallow fry when it’s hot enough, add kebab one by one until cook well. Serve this kebab with green chickpea dip or sauce
