Vegetarian Sheekh Kebab

According to wiki Kebabs originated in Persia. It mostly meat pieces arranged on a skewer and grilled on a charcoal barbeque. But we come across many variations of the kebab like shallow fried, deep fried, grilled, baked and even steamed.If you are a vegetarian like me and want some vegetarian variations of this kebab , you are are the right place. For the next seven days, you can virtually taste different types of kebabs at Veg junction:-)
INGREDIENTS
Green gram dhal(yellow dhal) 1 cup
Potatoes 3 (medium)
Chilli powder 1 1/2 tsp
Garam masala 2 tsp
Coriander 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Ghee 2 tsp
PREPARATION
Cook the dhal in just enough water till it cooks and the water evaporates.Cook it in open pot and not in cooker. Else it will become mushy. Let it cool
Cook the potatoes with skin in microwave without water. You can steam cook it too. But i use microwave as there is no water retention in potatoes and is quite dry.
The procedure for cooking the potato in microwave will be shown in the later posts
When the potatoes have cooled , mash it well.
Now mix the potatoes with dhal,chilli powder, garam masala and salt.
Take one ball of this mixture and press it around the skewer and arrange it on the prepared grill/ charcoal barbeque, apply ghee on it and and let it cook for 5-10 minutes.(This timing is for charcoal barbeque only)
Let it brown on one side and then flip it to the other side and again cook it for till it browns
Serve it hot!!!!!!!
ooh....I love these!!!!!!!
