Kebabs are the most popular appetizers in our Indian cuisine. They originated from the Persian and Turkish cuisine in late 17th century. Many variants are popular throughout Asia, and around the world. Although Kebabs are cooked on skewer on a Tandoor to have a smoky flavor, some of them do not need to be cooked on skewers. They can be easily moulded into any shape of your choice and pan-grilled as well. Kebabs can be vegetarian as well and a lot of vegetables can make it even healthier and full of nutritions. This Hara Bhara Kebab recipe is easy to cook at home and pan-grilled.

- Spinach – 1 cup roughly chopped
- Green Peas – 1/2 cup boiled
- Capsicum and Green French Beans – 1 cup (optional to add more color and flavor)
- Green Chillies paste – 1 teaspoon

Method to Cook:
Firstly, take a pan and add some oil in it. When it is heated, add chopped onions.
When it becomes little translucent, add ginger garlic paste and green chillies paste. Saute well. Now add all the vegetables. Saute again well for about 2-3 minutes.
Add salt to taste, turmeric, coriander powder, red chilli powder, amchur powder or chaat masala and garam masala. Mix well and saute for about 2 minutes. Turn off the gas and let the mixture cool down to room temperature. Now blend it to make a fine puree. It should not be too runny so don’t add extra water, since spinach releases it’s own water.
Take a bowl. Mix mashed potatoes, grated paneer, vegetable puree, half of bread crumbs and roasted besan. Adjust the salt as per taste. Mix all the ingredients well to make a dough.
Now make tikkis out of it and coat each one of it with bread crumbs. As per choice, you can grill it on pan, deep fry it or oven bake it. Serve it hot with chutney of your choice.
