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.
