How to make Hara Bhara Kebab:

  1. Bring water to boil in a saucepan and add spinach. Turn off the flame and cover it. Keep it for 5 mins then strain it through a sieve or a colander. Now transfer the spinach to ice-cold water and keep it for 2-3 mins, then strain it again. Blanching is done. Keep aside
  2. Take a grinder jar, add boiled green peas and blanched spinach. Grind to make a fine paste. Transfer it to a mixing bowl
  3. In the same bowl add mashed potatoes, green chilli, roasted gram flour, grated garlic-ginger, dry mango powder, chaat masala powder, garam masala powder and salt. Mix well to make a nice smooth dough. Add bread crumbs if the dough is not stiff and mix well
  4. Take desired portion from the dough to make a round flat kebabs. Keep aside
  5. Heat a non-stick pan. Pour a few drops of oil and place the kebabs. Pan dry on medium flame until golden brown then flip and cook similarly. Your Hara Bhara Kebab is ready
  6. I served them with mini parathas, Green Chutney and Tzatziki Sauce.
