CHICKPEA KEBAB/CHANA KEBAB /A  HEALTHY STARTER

Chickpea or chana kebabs are a perfect starter or evening snack. These easy to cook patties have a fuss-free process. Only two main ingredients(boiled chana/chickpeas and potatoes) are required and if they are ready in hands, the yummy chickpea kebabs get ready in 10-15 minutes. No other binding agent has been used so, prepared super soft and melt in the mouth😋 Roasted cumin/jeera powder lifts the flavour to give a particular kebab flavour

These chickpea kebabs are inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. The natives from the countries which surround the Mediterranean Sea consume a lot of beans and legumes in their regular diet. Chickpea is one of them. From dips to snacks and curries, they make a number of dishes with chana/chickpea which is one of the healthiest legumes. I have served these yummy kebabs with BEETROOT HUMMUS which  goes well with these kebabs lifting their taste to the next level
