Kaale Chane Ki Kabab

Kaala Chana a variety of chickpea is high in protein and is definitely good for growing kids and diabetics since it is rich in dietary fiber and low glycemic index. When this is made into a guilt free snack , it is just out of the world.This snack is loaded with all the goodness you can ask for and I must say it is very easy to prepare at home. So why don't you try this!!!!
INGREDIENTS
Kala Channa     1 cup
Bengal gram dhal  1/4 cup
Onion                 1
Garam masala     1/2 tsp
Oil                    for shallow frying
PREPARATION
Soak the chana in enough water for nearly 12-14hrs
Cook it with bengal gram dhal and salt until it becomes soft but not mushy. I cooked it in cooker for upto 5 whistles. Let it cool
Now transfer this to a colander and let all the water drip out.Make sure there is no water remaining in it.
Grind it into a soft mass/litlle powdery without adding any water
Transfer this to a bowl. Add cut onions,chilli powder and garam masala to this and mix well.
Take small ball of this mixture and flatten it a little like a tikki.
Shallow fry this with very little oil on both sides.When one side turns brown flip it to the other side and let it cook for 2 minutes.
Serve hot
We all loved this guilt free snack and when u bite it , it just melts away in your mouth...a buttery like softness. This recipe is definitely a keeper
