Chickpea kabab is something unique and different. I am saying different because the conventional vegetarian kababs are mostly made with Potato or Paneer. But, here we are trying to make something hatke.

ChickPea or commonly known as Kabuli Chana in Hindi are everybody’s favorite. They are rich in protein and are famous for their inseparable role in Chhole Bhature. You can’t even imagine eating bhature without these chhole made with chickPea.

These delicious and mouth watering ChickPea Kabab can be made by following this step by step recipe.
