Hara bhara kabab, which is nothing but green peas and paneer kabab, is a delicious vegetarian kabab packed with wholesome nutrition and it’s super easy to make!
I do not make vegetarian kababs frequently but when I make one, it has to be something really special! Same holds true with my hara bhara kabab which I am sharing here today. This green peas and paneer kabab could not have any other apt name than hara bhara kabab! ‘Hara’ which means ‘green’ and ‘bhara’ which means ‘filled’; I assume it comes from the fact that this hara bhara kabab is loaded with nutrition and of course its vibrant green color is a result of vibrantly green colored green peas! I got attracted to this hara bhara kabab because of its tempting green color as it immediately made me hungry. This hara bhara kabab also gave me a delicious option of vegetarian kababs specially for house parties or potlucks and I definitely needed some help with that!
You already got to know that primary ingredients of the hara bhara kabab is green peas and paneer, but peas play the dominant role here. Grated paneer i.e. cottage cheese adds body to the hara bhara kabab; but the key flavor is lent by good old green peas. The mixture of this kabab is very easy to make; only the first step may seem a little too time consuming if you are using fresh peas. You need to cook the peas in ghee on low heat until they turn soft so that you get that succulent texture in the final kabab. I would recommend to use fresh green peas instead of frozen as I feel fresh peas are more packed with flavor; hence it’s totally worth to take that extra step in order to produce the most scrumptious hara bhara kabab for yourself and your friends & family!
