Hariyali Kebabs are an Indian which is in the shape of a patty or a roll.These spinach kebabs are melt in the mouth and get their green color from it.
Hariyali Kebabs get their green colour from the spinach and peas . To get a beautiful green you must blanch the chopped spinach . Boil water and keep ice cold water ready . As soon as the water boils add the spinach , let it cook for just 30 secs . Yes that’s enough . Remove with a slotted spoon and immerse in the iced water . Remove again with a slotted spoon . You shall see lush green spinach .
While making these Hariyali kebabs , you need to remove the moisture , so take a muslin cloth and place both spinach and peas and squeeze the water . Now remove in a mixing bowl and add rest of the ingredients and shape into small kebabs , garnishing with cashew halves .
This week I have chosen to cook Kebabs under the theme Anything you can Snack On . Yesterday it was Subz Tawe ki Shami , those were made on a griddle but today’s Kebabs are shallow fried. Kebabs can also be grilled on charcoal or deep fried. All kebabs are best served with onion rings , lemon and a nice green chutney .
The Kebabs are nutritious as well as delicious , serving them with a paratha turns them into a complete meal . So enjoy these Hariyali Kebabs while I dish out another one for tomorrow .
