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 thro 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 Winking smile What else i need Smile.
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 u make it. Try my version , u’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 u make it for kids.
  2. The outer layer was very crispy and inside it was very soft.
  3. If u 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 u 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 ,  u can add chat masala  & amchur powder.
