Many of us are foodies by nature and at the same time health conscious.
This means we are constantly on the lookout for yummilicious nutritious foods which would satiate the taste buds and at the same time provide us with optimum nutrition for our mind, body & soul.
Today I am here with yet another tasty and healthy recipe for you all. It is a modified version of kebab-patty-tikki and can be used as a snack or a meal when combined with flatbread and dips. Additionally, it can also be used to replace the classic patty in a burger to make it protein rich-nutrient dense and delicious for kids and adults alike.
Unlike conventional ingredients we will be using a protein rich, iron rich, fiber rich Rajma/kidney beans mixture to make the patty. The beauty of this recipe is that it can be eaten any time of the day with any meal yet it would be the star of the meal.
The use of Rajma or kidney beans makes it an excellent recipe for children, adolescent girls, pregnant & lactation women as well as a great alternative for diabetics and anaemics.
1 bowl boiled rajma (soaked overnight) or 1 bowl leftover rajma (dried into a paste before using)
2 tbsp dry roasted besan
1 tsp flax seeds powder
salt to taste
chopped green chilli
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped coriander
Mash the rajma into a smooth paste
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Season according to your taste preference
Choice of cooking methods:-
1. Shape into round shape and cook over a flat pan or tawa. Use very little oil. Let them cook well till they get a crispy shell. Flip and cook on the other side.
2. Shape them as a seekh kebab around a skewer and grill on a griller or in an oven or in a tandoor.
3. Shape into fun shapes and cook in an air fryer.
These can be eaten with a Roomali roti or with rice & raita or as a burger patty to prepare a delicious and healthy burger for the kids. It can also be a great finger food for those fabulous game nights!
Kidney beans are among the best sources of plant-based protein. They’re also rich in healthy fibers, which moderate blood sugar levels and promote colon health.
Kidney beans are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, such as molybdenum, folate, iron, copper, manganese, potassium, and vitamin K1.
