Rajmah ke Kebaab

Vegetarianism can be quite a lot of fun if one knows how to play along with ingredients. Hailing from a vegetarian family, I am forever inspired by my Mum's endeavors to be cook new delights to please us. This recipe is dedicated to Mum and created to bring a smile on her face. Also my pestering students who keep forcing me to make new dishes in our little cooking class. so here goes.


Rajman (kidney bean) 1 cup 
Boiled potatoes 2 large
onions 1 large (chopped)
green chilies 1 large (chopped) 
Grated ginger 1/2 tsp 
Everest Meat Masala 1/2 tsp 
Sattu ( roasted Gram Flour) 2 tsp 
olive oil 1 tsp
crushed coriander seeds 1/2 tsp 
ice cream sticks 15 nos

flour 2 tbsp 
water 1/2 cup ( chilled) 
baking powder 1 pinch 

Chat masala for sprinkling
lemon wedges and chutney as accompaniment 


  • soak rajma overnight, and boil till soft
  • blitz the rajma and mash with boiled potato to for am soft dough and add Sattu 
  • in a non stick pan, heat olive oil and crackle the coriander seeds and chilies
  • add the ginger and saute for a few seconds
  • add chopped onions to the tempering and the dry spices. cook till brown 
  • add the spiced onions to the Rajma paste

  • put in the freezer for 30 mins so that they set
  • make the batter by mixing flour, chilled water, salt and baking powder

P.S.  Shape like a croquet ( cylinder ) and it can be called Rajma ke Shammi 
P.P.S. Shape like a patty ( thin round ) and grill on a griddle plate and call it Rajmah ke Galuti
P.P.P.S. Also a great item to make rumaali rolls with coriander chutney and Lachha onions
Will soon bring to you a nice and easy Phirni.....
