Chane ka Kabab

You can cheat your friends with Chane ka Kabab. It tastes just like mutton shami kabab. Vegetarians also can enjoy it without any qualms.



Soaked  Chana  2 cups                             Onions  2 medium
Garlic           4  cloves                                  Ginger      1/2 inch
Jeera             1 tea spoon                            Dhania powder    1 tea spoon
Red Chili powder      1/2 tea spoon         Black pepper   8-10 grains
Garam Masala whole    1 tea spoon         Resins
Pudina leaves                                                 Green chillis
Cooking Oil                                                     Salt

Please adjust the ingredients according to taste.  


  • Put the Chana, onions, ginger, garlic, jeera, Dhania powder, garam masala whole and  salt in a pressure cooker.
  • Add 2 cups of water.
  • Boil till the chana becomes soft.
  • Remove from fire and allow it to cool.
  • Open the lid and check water. If any water is left, put it on fire and dry the water.
  • Cool the chana and grind it fine.
  • Mix chopped green chillis and  pudina leaves.
  • Take some dough and make round cups.
  • Put one or two resins and make round balls.
  • Flatten the balls and shallow fry on a tawa or frying pan on medium fire.

Make sure that the dough is not very hard. Otherwise the kababs will turn out hard. The finished kababs should be soft.


The kabas are ready. Garnish and serve. It goes fabulously well with dhania chutney or tomato ketchup. It can be eaten both as a snack or with rotis, puris and  parathas.

If you put more water and do not dry it after boiling, the broth  makes excellent and very healthy soup.
