How to make Hara Bhara Kabab:

  1. Boil water in a saucepan to blanch the spinach. Add spinach. Turn off the flame. Cover and keep it for 5 mins. Now strain the water using a colander. Now transfer the spinach to ice-cold water. Again drain the water using the colander. Blanching is done. Keep aside
  2. Take a pan and add gram flour. Roast it till fragrant. Keep aside
  3. Take a grinder jar. Add boiled green peas and blanched spinach. Grind to make a fine paste. Keep aside

  6. Add roasted gram flour, bread crumbs (if dough is not stiff), grated garlic, grated ginger, dry mango powder, chat masala powder, garam masala powder and salt. Mix well to make a nice smooth dough
  7. Take desired portion from the dough to make kabab. Make a round flat kabab. Similarly make the rest. Keep aside
  8. Heat a non-stick pan or tawa. Pour a few drops of oil
  9. Place the kababs and cook on medium flame till they are golden brown
  10. Flip the kabab and cook in the similar way from the other side
  11. Your Hara Bhara Kabab is ready. Serve hot
