Seekh Moong Kabab

Kabab or kebab have been very popular these days. Though originated in Middle eastern Asia, they have now become popular world wide. It is usually pieces of meat or vegetables  binded together on  a skewer and grilled or roasted. But today, I find that they can be put on a skewer or made into flat round balls and  served.These make excellent starters and today I find them to be a guilt free food for us. Here is one healthy, Seekh Moong Kebab for you.

When the theme of our blog hop was decided as “biryani and kebab” I really tried, searched and made my own versions by making a few changes. But, on the final day, I did post only one recipe and that was of Brown rice Biryani.

Seekh moong kabab is healthy and tasty, something different from the usual routine. I have served it with tzatziki dip. You can also use mint chutney.

Ingredients :

  • Split moong 1 cup
  • potatoes boiled 2
  • boiled peas 1cup
  • onion finely chopped 1
  • bread crumbs 1bowl
  • chilli powder 1 1/2 tsp
  • amchur powder 1/2 tsp
  • chat masala 1/2 tsp
  • salt
  • corn flour with water
  • oil

Method :

Boil the moong with one cup of water. Let all the water evaporate. You can mash it with the back of the ladle. Let it cool. Add the potatoes, onion , peas and all the other spice powders to it.

Make balls of it, flatten it between palms and keep aside.

Mix cornflour and water to a paste.

Heat a skillet. I prefer using  Nirlep appliances, they last for a long time. You can check them.Take a patty dip it in the paste and put it on the skillet. Put some oil on it.  Allow to cook on both sides until golden brown in colour.

Seekh moong  kabab is ready to serve.

I love Nirlep appliances. They are one of the renowed manufacturers of non stick cookwares. They are of good quality and last for many years.

Panipuri/ golgappa/ puchka/ chaats time

panipuri pani puri recipe Panipuri/ golgappa/ puchka/ chaats time panipuri1

Panipuri is a popular street food that needs no introduction. The fun of eating panipuri is not limited to youngsters alone. The street vendor has a roaring business by selling this daily.

Panipuri, the small puffed puris are filled with a filling and eaten with a spicy, sweet and tangy water in it. Simple pleasures of life, isn’t it? It is called as Panipuri in north india, Golgappa in Uttarpradesh, Puchka in  Bengal and Gujarat, and as Gupchup in Jharkhad and Chattisgarh.

Different fillings can be used to fill the puri. The water is spicy, tangy and tasty. Different versions of pani too are made. Here is one kind which I often make at home.

Recently, I found puris on Urban Platter in Amazon and thought of trying them. Thus, I ordered a pack to see how it was. The puris are like fryums, you need to fry them and serve, isn’t that awesome? Once I put them in the oil, it puffed up, and I was wondering, such small ones, soon it enlarged and was perforated with patches. It was bigger than my usual ones! Taste wise, yes, did like it.

frying of puri

Earlier, I used to get from my local vendor. He makes a pack of these and keeps them ready whenever I need.

For the filling, I love using moong. I soaked the moong overnight, I replaced the water and boiled it with a little salt. One can also use a mixture of potatoes and chickpeas along with spices in it.

 

I am too scared to eat panipuri outside as we are never sure of the kind of water used. A little precaution does go a long way. It’s been many years since I have been regularly making at home whenever the children demand.
