Hara Bhara Kebab is very popular veg starter in India, especially North India. This kabab is available in almost all decent restaurants in India and is a must have for all veg lovers. This is very mouthwatering and made by some green vegetables like spinach, green peas, coriander leaves, potato and paneer. In this recipe spinach and green peas are hero. Hara bhara kabab is a very healthy dish because of its ingredients. In this recipe I have shallow fried the kebabs but you have one more option, deep fry it. Actually me and my family like the aroma of smoke so I chose the first option; means shallow fry.

Then add all the spices like coriander – cumin powder, garam masala powder, dry mango powder, chat masala and salt. Mix it very well.

Then from this dough make 24 balls and turn them into kebab shape with your palm (ie. flatten the balls). Now put half a cashew nut on top of the kebabs.

 Now take a tawa or fry pan and brush some ghee. Heat it and place the kebabs.
Keep it till golden brown and flip off the kebabs and fry the other side.
If you want you can deep fried it.

Your Hara Bhara kebabs are now ready. Serve hot with green chutney.
