Step 1

Blanch spinach leaves in two cups of boiling salted water for five minutes. Drain, refresh in cold water and squeeze out excess water. Finely chop.

Step 2

Mix spinach, peas and potatoes. Add green chillies, ginger, coriander leaves, chaat masala and salt to taste. Add cornflour for binding.

Divide the mixture into twenty-four equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and then press it between your palms to give it a flat tikki shape.

Chef Tip

You may also shallow-fry the Hara Bhara Kabab on a griddle plate or a tawa. It is recommended that you do not use colour in this recipe. If you feel you may increase the quantity of spinach leaves to give a dark green colour. In that case add a little more cornstarch for binding.
