KALE CHANE KE KABABS

Ingredients :

1/2 cup kala chana (black gram)
1 tbsp chane ki dal (split gram)
1/4 tsp jeera ( cumin seeds)
1" stick Cinnamon ( dalchini)
1 moti Illaichi (seeds of brown cardamom)
3-4 Cloves (Laung)
2 flakes garlic
1/2" ginger
1 dry whole red chilli
4-5 kali mich ( black pepper)
1 onion finely chopped
2 slice bread crumbs
1/4 tsp amchoor ( dry mango powder)
Salt to taste

Method : 

  

  • Soak kala chana and chane ki dal together in about 2 1/2 cups of water, for 6-8 hours or overnight.
  • Pressure cook channas with jeera, dalchini, moti illaichi, laung, kali mirch, garlic, ginger and red chilli to give one whistle. Keep on low heat for 20 minutes.
  • If there is any water left, dry the channas on fire, leaving just a little water enough to grind.
  • Grind to a fine paste. Add bread crumbs or dipped bread in water and squeezed, salt and amchoor powder to taste.
  • Chill the mixture in the fridge for sometime.
  • Make small flattened rounds. 
  • Deep fry 4-5 pieces in medium hot oil. Drain on absorbant paper.
  • Sprinkle onion rings over the kababs.
  • Serve with chutney.

Note :- If the kababs break on frying, add another slice of crumpled bread to the mixture. The kababs may also be rolled in maida and then fried.
