Shammi Kebab Parathe-- Kale Chane Ke Parathe
Hello Dearies!!! I had posted Shammi Kebab recipe last week, which was much liked and appreciated by my friends. I had leftover mixture of the kebabs, which I used as a stuffing in this recipe. This makes for a good Kids School Lunch option also.

For the Stuffing;
You will need;
1 cup soaked and boiled black chana

1 boiled potato
1 tspn cayenne pepper powder
1 tspn Garam masala powder
1 tspn cumin powder
1 tspn coriander powder

1 tspn chat masala
2-3 crushed cloves of garlic
1/2 inch ginger grated

1 tsp Turmeric
salt to taste

Wash and Soak the kala chana in water for 5-7 hours. Boil the potatoes and the chana for 2 whistles and then 5 mins on low flame in a pressure cooker. Cool for 30 minutes.

In a bowl, mash the potato. In a mixer grind the boiled chana and mix in the potato mixture and add all the spices and mix well. 

For the Paratha Cover;
You will need;
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tspn salt
1 tbspn oil
water as needed to knead into a soft dough

In a bowl, mix the oil and salt and water and knead into a soft pliable dough. 

Making the parathas,


1. Make equal size balls of the cover and stuffing
2. Roll a small round of the cover and put the stuffing in it and fold from all sides and roll that in some flour, dust the rolling surface with some flour and
3. Roll into a small round roti or paratha.


Heat a pan/skillet/tawa and roast it on both sides applying little oil or ghee on it . When it gets cooked, serve with yogurt/pickle/ketchup or sour cream., salad or just enjoy these with hot chai.

Shammi Kebab- Kale Chane ke kebab

Shammi Kebab- Chane ke kebab
Hello Sweet Peas!!! My kids love Indian Subway as in the sandwich chain. They love US style subways too, but Indian chains are more customized for Indian spices and tastes. They have a variety to choose from chatpata chana pattie to mexican pattie to paneer tikka.

After returning to US, both kids missed the Indian varieties of patties. Like any good mom, I decided to search the chatpata chana pattie recipe. I had seen Sanjeev Kapoor  make his famous rajma pattie. I substituted rajma to kala chana, they tasted way better and kids gave me a thumbs up.

You will need;
1 cup soaked and boiled black chana

1 boiled potato
1 tspn cayenne pepper powder
1 tspn Garam masala powder
1 tspn cumin powder
1 tspn coriander powder

1 tspn chat masala
2-3 crushed cloves of garlic
1/2 inch ginger grated

1 tsp Turmeric
salt to taste
oil or spray to shallow fry the kebabs

Wash and Soak the kala chana in water for 5-7 hours. Boil the potatoes and the chana for 2 whistles and then 5 mins on low flame in a pressure cooker. Cool for 30 minutes.

In a bowl, mash the potato. In a mixer grind the boiled chana and mix in the potato mixture and add all the spices and mix well. 



Heat a skillet and grease the base with oil and drop little coins  of this mixture and spray them with an oil spray and fry till they get cooked. The kebabs are ready to be eaten with some green chutney or in any sandwich as subway does it with the greens and dressings.
