Notes

  1. Kala chana tends to get dry sometimes, if the kebab mixture is dry or unable to make patties, add few TBSP of water (reserved water from boiling chana) into the mixture. 
  2. You may add boiled potato or 2-3 TBSP of roasted chickpea flour, if you do not wish to use egg. Egg helps bind the mixture, so does boiled potato or chickpea flour.
  3. Vegetables of your choice such as carrots, corn, peas, green beans, bell peppers can also be added for more healthy vegetarian kebab.
  4. You can mash the boiled chana using the back of the spoon also.
  5. You can substitute 1 TSP of lemon juice instead of dry mango powder.
