Healthy Vegetarian Seekh Kebabs

Ingredients:Simple ingredients and no frying makes these kebabs healthy and delicious.

1 cup finely chopped green beans

1 cup finely chopped carrots

1 cup finely chopped potatoes

2 tsp garam masala

1 tsp amchur powder

1 tsp red chili powder

1 tsp corriander powder,salt to taste.

chaat masala to sprinkle when done.

2-3 tbl spoon oil.

1/4 cup bread crumbs.

15 skewers (metal or wood) soaked in water for about half an hour.

A flat or open griddle/pan.

Method:

steam the vegetable together until cooked

mash them into a thick pulp.

It will be sticky because of the potato but that is what will make it stick on the skewers.

add the seasoning,( increase or decrease based on your preference)

Skewing:

Take some pulp in your palm, put the skewer in the middle of the pulp in your palm and start to bind it such that half the skewer is covered with the pulp.

The trick is to evenly distribute the veg pulp and making a decent layer on the skewer. Not to thick or it will fall off or not to thin cause it will burn.

Once all the skewers are done, heat the griddle.

brush some oil to prevent sticking.

Gently roll them in bread crumbs and lay the skewers on the griddle, roast on medium high heat.

Brush some oil on the skewers just to brown them and turn them over until both sides are golden brown.

Sprinkle some chaat masala on top.

one can add coriander,spinach,mint leaves or any other vegetable like beets.

Serve it with mint chutney.
