Lentils/Dal Seekh Kebabs


ow obviously being a vegetarian you hardly get any choices in kebabs when you are in the UK. Back in India I had so many options to choose from. Any ways, I can’t mourn over it more. Lately I tried making Daal Seekh Kebabs and I was so satisfied (I have no words to explain my satisfaction level;). These kebabs are very healthy and are enriched in protein. Hmmm! Also very simple and hassle free. :)

Step 1

Clean, wash and boil the moong dal and channa dal in 2 cups of water till the dal is soft and cooked and all the water has evaporated.
Combine the cooked dal with the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Step 2

Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.
Using a thick seekh (metal /wooden skewer/toothpick), press each portion of the dal mixture on it using your fingers to make kebab.
Brush each kebab with oil.

Step 3

Heat oil in a pan and cook kebabs till both the sides are brown.
Serve hot with yogurt or chutney.

These kebabs can also be cooked on charcoal or electric barbecue.
Other dals/lentils like urad dal, masoor dal can also be used.
If using wooden skewer, soak them in water for atleast 2 hours. This will not burn the skewers.
Different grated vegetables can also be opted.
