Serves 4 people

Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes, washed, boiled, peeled, and cubed
  • 1/4 cup beetroot
  • 1/4 cup cabbage
  • 1/4 cup carrots
  • 1/2 cup mung sprouts (moong sprouts), cooked
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic-green chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 pinches garam masala powder, available in Indian stores
  • 2 slices bread, crumbled
  • 2-3 tablespoons chickpea flour (besan powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 cup rice flour, to dust the kebabs before frying
  • oil for deep-frying
  • salt to taste
  • 1 small onion

Instructions

  1. Make a paste of 1/2 inch ginger, 3-4 garlic cloves, and green chili. I added cumin to this, as well, because I didn't have cumin powder. If you have cumin powder, use it directly. Set aside.
  2. Finely chop beetroot, carrot, onion, and cabbage. I used a vegetable chopper for this work.
  3. In a mixer or blender, add chopped veggies and boiled mung sprouts. Pulse once or twice just to crush them.
  4. In a bowl, add crushed vegetable-sprouts mix, boiled potato cubes, bread crumbs, chickpea flour, chopped coriander leaves, all the spice powders, ginger-garlic-green chili paste, and salt. Mash potatoes and mix with the other ingredients to make a pliable, firm dough. Use water if only needed.
  5. Divide the dough into many lemon-sized portions. Shape them like a ball. Next, make them oblong-shaped.
  6. Heat oil for deep-frying. Coat each of these shapes with rice flour. Rice flour makes kebabs crunchy.
  7. Gently slide them in medium-hot oil. Turn the kebabs once or twice for uniform frying on all sides.
  8. Remove them when they turn golden-brown and crispy. Place them on an absorbent paper towel.
  9. Repeat the same procedure to make all the kebabs.
  10. Yummy mixed vegetable kebabs are ready to serve! Serve them hot with tomato sauce or green chutney. Enjoy!
