Veg Seekh Kebabs / Moong Dhal Kababs in Oven - Step by Step Recipe | Kebab Starters

I havent tasted veg kebabs in restaurants but wanted to give a try at home. We all loved the outcome of the tasty homemade kebabs. I was not satisified with the kebabs pics but had to go with these as I have no time in hand to make it and click again.I was so tired taking the stepwise pics with no leftout energy to click the main pics - Now that justifies the not so good pics he he :)

Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe


Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe:

Makes around 10-12 kebabs

Ingredients:
  • Moong dal - 1 cup
  • Boiled Potato - 1
  • carrot - 1 grated
  • Onion - 1 chopped finely
  • Capsicum - 1 chopped finely
  • Chilli powder - 2 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil - for brushing


Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe

Method:
Pressure cook moong dhal until mushy for about 3-4 whistles. Smash it well and add potatoes, ginger garlic paste, chat masala, garam masala , chilli and turmeric powder and mix well.

Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe Step1
Heat a tsp of oil in a nonstick pan and add the mixture, keep stirring until the dhal starts turning to golden brown in color.
Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe Step2
Add all the veggies : carrot , onion and capsicum, required salt and mix well. Preheat the oven to 220 deg C for 10mins. Meanwhile take a skewer and a lemon sized ball from the dough. Stick along the skewer vertically as shown in the pic.
Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe  Step3
Seal it well so that it doesnt open. Dont make the kebabs thick make a thin layer along the skewers for it cook well inside. Brush oil generously on the kebabs and bake them for 20 to 25mins or until the kebabs turn browned. Turn in between after 15mins to the other side.

Moong Dhal Kababs Recipe  Step4
Serve hot with green chutney or tomato sauce accompanied with sliced raw onions, tomato and lemon.

My Notes:
  • Make sure to make only a thin layer along the skewers else the inside will not get cooked. I made this mistake for the first test batch of 2 kebabs and made it thin in all other kebabs.
  • The kebabs are crispy on the outside and soft inside.
  • The above mentioned quantity makes around 10-12 kebabs.
  • The mode should be in bake, dont change it to grill as the outcome will be different.
  • You can also add bread while adding potatoes.
Moong Dhal Kababs Recipe
The kebabs can be deep fried also for those of you who dont own a oven. Make the kebabs as per the same method as above and deep fry them until golden brown.

This is sure a healthy and tasty veg starter that can be easily prepared at home.
