This is one kabab which i wanted to make for so long, whenever i have spinach on hand i run out of peas and when i have peas, i just have no spinach on hand. Finally one day i had both ingredients on hand and immediately with no delay i made it. I serve it for lunch and it was delicious.
Chicken Seekh Kebab
Mutton Shami Kebab
Murg Malai Kebab
Chicken Mince Kebab
This is so good and a guilt free snack because it used very very less oil, frankly you dont need to deep fry these, this kabab is meant to be pan fried with few drops of oil. I have another version of stuffed kabab will be sharing it another time..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
