Do you have days when you have too many vegetables sitting in your fridge because you might have gone a little overboard in your last shopping trip? Carrots that looked lovely but you picked up 1 kg of it, 1/2 kilogram of dark green fresh spinach that wont be fresh after today? Today was one such day for me, with 1/2 kg of really lovely spinach in the fridge, my kitchen literally churned out dishes that were not only pleasing to the eyes with its green goodness but also tasted delicious!. Hara Bhara Kebab are little patties or cutlets made with spinach, peas and potatoes but packed with refreshing flavours of green chilies, ginger, garlic and coriander.
While the recipe may sound like a lot of work, it is essentially a three step process of boiling, grinding and then roasting. I’d recommend using fresh spinach, boil your potatoes and dont microwave them to cook them, and use fresh coriander. All of this will help enhance the flavours a lot more.
‘Hara Bhara’ literally means Full of Green and these kebabs not only look beautiful in their dark green shade but the kebab is packed with flavours. Turn into a green god/dess by serving these Hara Bhara Kebabs either as a starter or accompaniment to your mains. Or you could also turn it into a chaat dish by topping up with some coriander chutney and tamarind chutney, chopped onions and little bit of yogurt and fresh coriander.
