Quick Hara Bhara Kebab

What do you do when you plan to make hummus, soak and boil chickpeas put it in food processor along with garlic and grind it, then reach out to tahini bottle and what do you see😱😱😱 the bottle is almost empty…. Now what 🙁🙁
No I won’t soak sesame seeds and grind it… I am too lazy to do that 😅😅
Just grab whatever else available in your fridge and grind it, I add little sweet corn, chilies, parsley, baby spinach, and thawed frozen peas and few other spices…. And my version of Hara Bhara kebab is ready..
I was pretty happy with the outcome 😀 Not only we ate at dinner time, also freezed some for Amal’s tiffin..


1 cup boiled chickpeas

1/2 cup boiled sweet corn

1 cup  spinach

1 boiled potato

1/4 cup boiled peas

3-4 garlic cloves

3-5 green chilies

3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

1/2 tsp cumin powder

1/4 garam masala powder

1/2 tsp amchur

1/4 tsp crushed black pepper

Salt to taste

Oil for shallow frying


Put all the ingredients in food processor except oil and coriander leaves.

Grind the mix  without adding water.

Keep the mixture little coarse.

Remove the kebab mix in a bowl add coriander leaves and chopped onion ( optional), I did not add.

Keep the kebab mix in fridge for 20-25 minutes to firm up a little.

Remove the mix from the fridge and make kebabs in form of tikkis or seekh whatever your heart desires, I had made both.(The seekh shape ones are easier to wrap in roti along with mayo and chopped herbs to form a wrap)

Keep the tikkis in fridge until you are ready to fry them.

Heat a frying pan and pour little pilot shallow fry the kebabs. Since all the ingredients are already cooked it won’t take longer to cook.

Over medium heat fry the kebab for 3-4 minutes or until it gets golden colour crust.

Serve hot with chutney or sauce, or wrap it in roti to make a wrap.
