Dal seekh kebabs Food Recipes

These vegetarian kebabs are very healthy and rich in protein and can be served with Food Recipes coriander and mint (pudina) chutney. It makes for a perfect vegetarian snack idea for parties.


Moong Dal - 1/2 cup

Channa Dal- 1/2 cup

Potato - 1/2 boiled and grated

Onion - 1 (grated)

Dried Fenugreek Leaves - 1/2 tablespoon

Salt - to taste

Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tablespoon

Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon

Turmeric powder - 1/8 teaspoon

Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon

Red chilli powder- 1 teaspoon

Garam Masala powder - 1 teaspoon

Green chilies - 2 (minced)

Gram flour- 2 tablespoon

Oil- for greasing (I used olive oil)


Clean, wash and boil the moong dal and channa dal in 2 cups of water untill the dal is soft and cooked and all the water has evaporated.

Combine the cooked dal with the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.

Using a thick seekh (metal /wooden skewer/toothpick), press each portion of the dal mixture on it using your fingers to make kebab.

Brush each kebab with oil.

Heat oil in a pan and cook kebabs untill both sides are brown.

Serve hot with yoghurt or chutney.


These kebabs can also be cooked on charcoal or an electric barbecue.

Other dals/lentils like urad dal, masoor dal can also be used.

If using wooden skewer, soak them in water for atleast 2 hours. This will not burn the skewers.

Different grated vegetables can also be used.
