This recipe of kebab was a pure experiment of leftover Rajma (red kidney beans) and Chhole (chickpea) at my place. With recent changes in my eating habits, I have started consuming a lot of Salads (At least trying to!) Apart from the leafy salads - which I absolutely love, I also like a nice mixed bean salad.
Just toss some rajma or chhole (or both) in some olive oil, lemon juice and season it with salt and pepper - and there you have, a nice mixed bean salad.
Lets talk about these kebabs now
I used regular boiled rajma and chhole for this recipe. These were put on a strainer to get rid of excess water. Mixed some bread crumbs and spices and shallow fried these.
I like using garlic breads as bread crumbs for any kebab recipe, but you can also make it on your own by simply adding some garlic cloves to the bread before pulsing them.
Mix the rajma and chhole with spices and bread crumbs and make small kebabs & shallow fry them as shown in the pictures.
Flip the kebabs after shallow frying them for 2 minutes.

Thank you so much! We love beans too.
What can I substitute for bread crumbs?

Hi Nivi! I have tried this recipe only with bread crumbs - it is needed for binding. You can try rice flour or roasted chickpea flour - let me know how that works. All the best 🙂
