Kale Chane Kebab Recipe – it’s a yummy nutritious snack filled with the benefits of kale chane. These are really easy to make and taste incredible. I have baked these to cut down on oil and the kebabs turned out very crispy and yummy. These make a perfect party appetizer and a high protein evening snack for kids. You can use these to make wraps also.
Kale chane or brown chickpeas or Bengal grams is a good source of protein, iron, Vitamins, and minerals. As it is rich in dietary fibers it helps in digestion and in reducing weight. It keeps us full for a long time. We don’t feel like eating again and again. It gives us energy also.
When we were young my Mom always used to say that if you eat this kale chane regularly you will become powerful as a horse 😉 😉
How to make Kale Chane Kebab
Preparation time: 15 minutes (overnight soaking required)
cooking time: 15 minutes

1/2 cup Kale Chane/brown chickpeas/Bengal gram soaked overnight
1 big onion roughly chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
a piece of ginger
1 green chili seeds removed and roughly chopped

¼ tsp red chili powder
½ tsp Chaat masala or juice of a lemon

To make Kale Chane Kebab
Boil or pressure cook kale chane in 1½ cup of water with salt for 10-15 minutes or 4-5 whistles till they are soft. Let it cool down completely. Drain the chana and keep the water aside. Don’t throw away this water. You can drink this as soup or add this to curries.
In a food processor, combine the drained chane, onions, green chilies, ginger, and garlic. Process it until smooth. You can keep the mixture a little coarse also.
Take it out in a bowl. Add chopped coriander leaves, red chili powder, chaat masala and mix everything. Taste and check if more salt is required.
scoop up a spoonful of mixture in your hands and shape it into Patties of desired size and shape. Place all patties in a plate and keep in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
Note: This is an optional step but I have found this to be helpful before baking. Also, you can keep this covered and refrigerated for 1-2 hours and bake when you want to eat.
Preheat the oven at 200 C. Brush the baking sheet with olive oil. Place all the patties on it. Brush the top of the patties with olive oil. Bake for 20-25 minutes flipping the patties halfway. It should be perfectly crisp on both sides. Serve Kale Chane Kebab hot with green chutney or ketchup.
