Mattar ke Kebab

BM # 47  Week 4  Day 3

For the third day under North Indian starters, I have a kebab. I was slightly hesitant posting these as I was not very happy with the color of these, but let me tell you the taste is awesome. These kebabs are very healthy, with the goodness of peas, spinach, and cottage cheese. Full of protein they are a perfect starter at parties. 

Mattar Ke Kebab
2 tbsp split bengal gram
1/2"piece ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced

2 green chillies, finely chopped
1/2 cup spinach, blanched and drained
1/4 cup green peas, boiled
1/4 cup cottage cheese, grated
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1/4 tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
3 tbsp bread crumbs

Pressure cook the chana dal, ginger, garlic and green chillies with ¾ cup of water for 2 to 3 whistles or until the dal is cooked. Drain out and discard any excess water.
Combine the spinach, green peas and cooked dal mixture and blend to a coarse paste without using any water.
Add the paneer, chaat masala bread crumbs and garam masala and mix well.
Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them into kebabs .
Deep fry till golden.
You could also shallow fry or use skewers and roast these kebabs.
Serve hot with chutney and tandoori salad.
