Green Lentil and Peas Kebabs are a perfect replacement for all the kebab lovers this winter. You may enjoy them as a starter, a tea time snack or even send them in tiffin for your kids. They are nutritious but I also agree that as it is deep fried it somewhere restricts the weight watchers.

Well in that case, you can simply shape them as a disk and shallow fry in a non stick tawa and make patties or make round balls and fry them in appe pan or air fry them for more better results.

Serve Moong Matar Kebab along with Pudina Chutney as a starter for your house parties.

How to make Moong Matar Kebab Recipe - Green Lentil And Peas Kebab

  1. To begin making the Moong Matar Kebab Recipe, soak lentils in water for minimum 1 hour. 

  2. Boil peas in a sauce pan till they turn soft. Drain water and leave them aside on a kitchen towel so that the excess water gets absorbed.

  3. Now strain the lentils and put them in a grinder jar along with peas and green chilies and grind them to make a coarse batter.

  6. Adjust salt as per taste and mix all nicely.

  7. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. The oil should be sufficient for deep frying.

  8. Meanwhile take a cup of water and wet both your palms.

  9. Scoop a lemon sized ball from the batter with your wet hand and toss it gently to make a round ball.

  10. Flatten the ball gently with your other hand and gently leave it in the oil to fry.

  11. Similarly shape rest of the batter for kebabs and deep fry from both sides till brown in colour.
