Hare bhare Kebab is the popular Indian veg kabab recipe. Hara chana or green tender chickpeas make this kebab a healthy and tasty party appetizer and a perfect tea-time snack. This crispy outside and soft melt in mouth kebab is an indulgent and wholesome appetizer recipe that you can cook and serve in less than 20 minutes!
Shallow-fried to a perfect crispy texture, Kebabs are a delight to dig in. I love to cook them during winters with seasonal Hara chana. You can make these with green peas when green chickpeas are not in season.
I love green chickpeas and during their season I try to make them as often as I can. I usually make Hare Chane Ke Kebab and serve it with spicy green chutney as an evening snack. These are perfect to pack in the lunch box along with some bread and hummus. You can even make a roll or wrap with whole wheat tortilla or Paratha.
Crispy, Creamy and Wholesome Hara Chana Kebab!
What I love most about Hara Chane Ke Kebab is its texture. Unlike other kebabs, they don’t just melt in the mouth but also crunchy, creamy and absolutely delicious.
Just one bite of this flavorful appetizer and there is a blast of flavors in your mouth. You get the crunchiness of green chickpeas, the creaminess of cottage cheese and just the right amount of spices.
What Goes Inside The Perfect Kebab Recipe
This kabab recipe is different from others because of its juiciness and flavor. Grated Indian cottage cheese/paneer gives this Hara chana kabab the required cheesiness. Green chickpeas make it crunchy.
I usually shape the Hara bhara kababs in signature round shapes. You can make these juicy kebabs in any shape you want, be it a circle or in disc shapes (a flat circular shape like kachori) or even skew them on a seekh/wooden skewer for a seekh kebab.
There vegetarian kabab are easy to cook, even a beginner can cook these. All you need is a few ingredients and a blender! These are healthier and shallow-fried so you don’t even feel guilty of overeating when you pop some extra.
Wrap it or Make a Veg Platter
I know, to pop the kabab straight out of the pan sounds great, but you can serve it in other ways too. When you are in a hurry make a wrap and add some of these juicy kababs along with mayo for a quick snack. On weekends you can serve it as a veg platter with some lettuce, tomatoes, and feta cheese or may be as a part of a mezze platter.
You can also serve this crispy from outside and full of flavors from inside veg kabab with tangy mint chutney or serve as an appetizer for weekend parties or brunches.
