Channa/Chick peas Kabab

Here is a simple kid's favorite recipe which I adapted from a cookery show.It is a easy to make protein rich,delicious and filling snack made with ground chickpeas and spices.I made this one without adding any veggies,if you want you can add veggies of your choice to make it more healthier.
When I made this one for first time,had a doubt whether it tastes like masala vadai,but it tastes different which has a crispy outer layer and soft inner layer.Now to the recipe....


Chick peas/channa(soaked)1cup
Onion(finely chopped)2nos.(medium size)
Green chilly(finely chopped)2nos.
Garlic/poondu(finely chopped)2tsp
Ginger/Inji(finely chopped)1tsp
Red chilly powder1/2tsp
Coriander leaves(finely chopped)2tbs
Mint leaves(finely chopped)10-15nos.
Rice flour/arisimaavu2tbs
Corn flour1tbs
Chaat masala powder1tsp
Saltto taste
Oilfor deep frying


Grind the soaked channa coarsely in a blender without adding water.
Add everything except oil,mix it well.
Divide the mixture to equal portions and shape them to a oblong kababs and set it aside.
Heat a pan with oil and once it becomes hot fry the kababs till crisp and golden.Drain it on a kitchen towel.
Serve it with ketchup and green chutney.


  • Veggies such as finely chopped cabbage,carrot can also be added.
  • Make sure the channa is grind properly,if any whole channa is there it may splutter.
  • Fry 4-5 kababs at a time to get the color evenly.

Thanks, I'll give it a try!

I tried it with canned chickpeas, shelled them first then mixed with ingredients but it was too dry to stay together. I had to add some oil to the mix to keep each kebab from crumbling.
