Tips and Variations:
Instead of roasting them on tava, you can also roast them in TANDOOR.
You can additionally add the veggies like cauliflower, sweet corn, beetroot, spinach, etc.
If you are making this for KIDS, add paneer, soy chunks or boiled lentils to make it a protein rich snack.
If you are the usage of frozen inexperienced peas then no need to boil them separately. You can cook dinner them with other vegetables.
If the kabab breaks or it is tough to provide shape of the kabab due to the fact of the excess moisture, add greater breadcrumbs in the mixture.
