Hara bhara kebab

Posted on August 3, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes/diabetic recipe, Starter | Tags: , , |

A healthy vegetarian version of kebabs with a tasty blend of ingredients. The spinach adds to its vitamin A content while contributing very little to the carbohydrate levels. The green peas add bulk and fibre to this dish.
Roll these kebabs in whole wheat bread crumbs to make them more nourishing than those coated with refined flour (maida), bread crumbs or rava.
Serve hot.

Cooking Time : 20 mins.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.
