Till now you all might be come to know that I am a pity mother of lil fussy eater 😃. Few days back while watching his favorite movie he ate some chicken kabab, of course not home made. And luckily he liked it too much. Even after returning to home he used to say that he will love to hog on these snacks again. Although I am not pure vegetarian but have very limited access to these dishes in my kitchen. But as he is interested in it , which occurs once in a blue moon, I thought to do little experiment with my veg options. And viola , the experiment was a big successful one. Not only him but we all enjoyed every bite of it. Used capsicum, beans, carrots, soya chunks, potato and cottage cheese to make these beauties. These are pan fried in very less oil , which makes it suitable snacks for weight watchers too. But i am so happy that my lil one loved it and He took these in his tiffin too.
Recipe is given below, hope to make you happy with its superb taste.
SOYA CHUNKS AND PANEER VEG KABAB
Time: 30 mins( leaving the chilling time)
2- 2 1/2 cup very finely chopped mixed veggies ( beans , carrots, colored capsicum) , I used chopper to chop the veggies
3/4 cup soya chunks
1 cup cottage cheese ( paneer), crumbled
3-4 medium size potatoes, boiled and mashed
2 big onions, finely chopped
3-4 green chilies, finely chopped
1/4 cup green coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
1/2-1 tsp chaat masala powder
1/4 cup bread crumbs ( optional)
Salt to taste
First of all soak soya chunks in hot water for 15-20 mins or microwave it in sufficient water for 4-5 mints. Now wash it with tap water 2-3 times, followed by squeezing every time. Now blend it in chopper or mixer to get fine granules. Keep aside for later use.
Heat some oil in a wok, add chopped onions and chilies. Let them fry till golden, now add ginger garlic paste and saute for 2 mins.
Now add chopped mixed veggies and some salt, saute for 4-5 mins. Add all dry spice powder except chaat masala . Saute for 2-3 mins and cover to cook the veggies till tender.
Now add soya granules and again saute for 4-5 mins. Add mashed potatoes and again saute for 2-3 minutes. Now add crumbled paneer, chaat masala and adjust salt.
Finally add coriander leaves and mix well. Switch off the flame and your mixture for Kabab is ready. Let it chill in fridge for 1 hr. If you feel your mixture is not too firm to make clean shapes then add bread crumb to it and mix well. Adding bread crumbs is completely optional.
Now make desired shape of kabab from mixture .
shallow fry on a non stick tawa till nice golden on both sides.
Your nice tender and delicious kabab is ready to be served with any chutney or sauce.
