The Hara Bhara Kebab Recipe are popularly the green looking kebabs that make great appetizers or even a tea time snack for parties. These Kebabs are most often made with green peas and paneer and flavored with lots of herbs. As usual in my quest to use millets and also to add a nutty flavor and texture to the kebab I decided to add them to the Hara Bara Kebab as well. 

Serve the Hara Bhara Kebabs with Millet along with Green Chutney with a cup of Masala Chai. for an evening snack.

Did You know: Bajra is a high-energy food that takes longer time to break down starch and it keeps you full for a longer time. It is also an excellent source of essential amino acids that make up protein molecules. According to nutritional experts, the amino acids present in Bajra are readily available and more easily digestible than wheat grains.
