  • Black-eyed peas (lobia) (500 gm)
  • Onion (finely chopped) (1 cup)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • MTR Lal Mirch/Red Chili Powder ( 1 tsp)
  • Green chili (hari mirch), finely chopped (1)
  • Ginger powder (saunth) (1/2 tsp)
  • MTR Dhaniya/Coriander Powder (1 tsp)
  • Asafoetida (hing) (1/4 tsp)
  • MTR Garam Masala (1/2 tsp)

  • Wash and soak the peas overnight or for at least 5–6 hrs in water.
  • Next day, drain the water and grind the lobia into a smooth paste.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a pan and fry the chopped onion till it is light brown in colour.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the lobia paste, gram flour, fried onion, spices, salt and chopped coriander. Mix well to form a smooth dough.
  • Heat ghee in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Take a lemon-sized portion of the dough, flatten it with your palms and form a round disc of an inch thickness. Similarly, shape all the kebabs.
  • Dust the kebabs with maida and shallow-fry them in small batches in the hot ghee.
