we all know the benefits of spinach which is the star ingredient of these kababs. You can add a variety of green vegetables in these. I have added whatever I had in my fridge namely beans capsicum coriander leaves. In winters peas can be added to these as peas add a very nice taste to kebabs or cutlets.
