Veg kabab is a tasty vegetarian starter recipe that can be made for a Diwali lunch or dinner menu.

Veg kabab has been a recipe which I should have posted earlier. But better late than never. Usually, I prepare kabab in a similar way I make Veg cutlet. so I did not add the recipe, as its a similar recipe but with a different method of cooking. Veg cutlets are shallow fried and kabab are baked.

But i tried a completely different way of making veg kebabs and the recipe was a success. so made it again and took pics. No boiled potatoes or boiled veggies are added in this one. The whole kebab mixture is made of raw minced veggies. Very easy to prepare.

You can bake them as well as pan fry. baked ones are definitely healthier, but even the pan fried ones are healthy as we are not shallow frying or deep frying. Plus you can add less or more oil as per your requirements while frying.

I have explained the method for pan frying in the recipe. So that if you do not have an oven, you can still make these veg kebab. The pan fried kabab do taste better than the baked ones as they are more moist and have a nice soft texture.

While preparing any veggie base dish, it does take time to grate or mince them. I have used a food chopper to mince the veggies.

You can also use your mixer-grinder and use the pulse option while grinding to mince the veggies. Scrape after a few pulses and then again pulse to get an even mince in the veggies. Or you can use a food chopper or a food processor to mince the veggies.

The best part of this kabab recipe, you can use any veggie you want. The taste of the veg kebab will largely depend on the veggies you have used. I have used a mix of carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms, potatoes, green peas and onions.

Besan or gram flour is added to bind the minced veggies. Depending on the moisture content in the besan, you can add less or more of it.

Few more kebab recipes on blog are

  1. Veg shammi kabab
  2. Hara bhara kabab
  3. Corn kebab
  4. Dahi kabab

Serve veg kabab with mint chutney, coriander chutney or tomato ketchup. You can also serve some sliced onions and lemon wedges as an accompaniment.

These veg kebab are kid friendly too. So you can even wrap them in thin chapatis. Dot with mayo or mint coriander chutney or ketchup or grated cheese or paneer and serve as a kebab kathi roll. If you want you can also add some dry fruits.

How to make kabab with mix vegetables

  • Preparing veg kabab mixture

1. Rinse and dice or quarter the veggies. Take all of them in a food processor or food chopper or in a mixer or grinder jar. Also add mint and coriander leaves.

2. Make a fine mince of the veggies. If using a mixer or grinder jar, then use the pulse option for a few seconds or run the mixer for a few seconds. Then scrape the sides and again run the mixer for a few seconds. Again scrape and run the mixer for a few seconds, till the veggies are minced very well. Do not make a paste.
