Tasty Protein

A protein rich vegetable kebab recipe with green gourd (dudhi/lauki) and boiled and crushed red chana. I used to make these as tikkis earlier but now I personally recommend that you fry it to a crispy finish.

Served hot, these kebabs are not just starters; but a conversation-starter!
