Hara Bhara Kabab | Spinach Peas Cutlet

Hara Bhara Kabab,  a North Indian Patties made with peas and spinach. It's one of our recent favourite snacks and I often make it as a side for evening tea. They are super delicious and healthy too .

When i started to search for evening snacks which are healthy as well as tasty, this kabab/patties got my attention. Ever since i made this hara bhara kabab at home, it became a regular in our evening time.   

Making this kabab is super easy if you have boiled potatoes at hand. So if i'm planning to make these patties for the evening snack then i would probably boil a few extra potatoes while preparing the lunch itself , that way it comes handy in the evening.

The key to making these delicious kababs is to make sure that there is no excess moisture in any of the vegetables. Therefore drain the peas and spinach well before grinding and also make sure to remove the cooked potatoes from the water immediately once it's done because potatoes tend to absorb water if left it in water for a longer time. 

Now let's check out on how to make these delicious Hara Bhara Kabab.

  • Adjust chili as per your spice level.
  • For more flavor, you can add 1/2 tsp of cumin while grinding the mixture.
  • If you're not able to bind it all together and make a ball, then add a little more besan.
  • Try to squeeze the water as much as possible from the boiled spinach and peas.
  • I have used frozen peas but fresh peas also work well for this recipe.
