hara bhara kebab
As I had mentioned in my previous baking posts, I recently started experimenting recipes in my microwave oven . I had tried recipes using convection and microwave modes. But one mode which I want to try for a long time is GRILL mode. When I was searching for recipes that use grill mode , I got this one. Though I got the actual recipe from net , I had the same in the microwave manual too. So i just went through both the recipes, tweaked a bit and made my own. My hubby dear liked it a lot. He said its better than the ones served in restaurants. 

I was also very happy with the outcome. We enjoyed as a evening snack. Its a zero oil crispy kebab. I am sure most of you make it. Try my version, you’ll love it..

1 cup - 200ml
  • Boiled green peas – 1/4 cup
  • Palak / spinach– 1/2 cup
  • Boiled potato – 1 no
  • Boiled carrot – 1 no
  • Corn flour – 1/8 – 1/4 cup ( adjust)
  • Maida – 1 tbsp(optional)
  • Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder -  1/2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – As needed
  • Bread crumbs – 1/4 cup
  • Oil – 1tsp
  • Pressure cook peas, potato, carrot and set aside.
  • In a kadai, add a tsp of oil and saute the washed, cut palak leaves till it shrinks and reduces to half in quantity.
  • Now take the cooked vegetable and sautéed palak leaves in a mixie and grind smoothly without adding much water. ( No need to add water . If necessary add very little.)
  • Take the paste in a mixing bowl and add corn flour , red chilly , coriander powders , GG paste, salt and garam masala powder.
  • Make a dough. If the dough is sticky add more corn flour or little maida to get a whole mass. Apply little oil if needed.
  • Take a small ball shaped dough and pat it to make a round shape.
  • Roll this in bread crumbs and arrange everything in a metal plate .Sprinkle little oil on top of kebab.
  • Now set the grill mode and bake it for 10 mins.
  • Remove the metal plate and turn the kebabs upside down for the other side to cook.
  • Again bake in grill mode for 9 mins.
  • So the total time would be 19 mins. Please adjust this time according to ur microwave.
Tasty , hot kebab is ready to eat !
  1. The actual recipe called for deep frying the kebab. But I  tried in grill mode as suggested in my manual. Deep fry if you make it for kids.
  2. The outer layer was very crispy and inside it was very soft.
  3. If you don’t want to make it in microwave, just toast this kabab in dosa tawa by drizzling little oil.
  4. U can also try coarse grinding the vegetables and palak leaves if you wish.
  5. Try adding the finely chopped palak leaves as it is instead of grinding with vegetables.
  6. Kids will enjoy this snack with tomato sauce.
  7. Instead of garam masala powder,  you can add chat masala  & amchur powder.
