Hara bhara kabab is generally a round shaped mix vegetables Patty or tikki which is either baked , shallow fried or deep fried. It is widely used as an appetizer.

Hara bhara kabab is green in colour due to the uses of green vegetables like beans, green peas or any other green vegetables. You can use palak paste as well to make this kabab.
Palak paste give it a nice green color look. Hara bhara kabab can be made using only green peas and palak paste.

In this recipe I have used different vegetables like beans, carrot, cauliflower and green peas to make it more nutritious.

These vegetables are finely chopped and cooked till dry. Then all other ingredients are mixed to make a dough.  This vegetable dough then divided into small balls to make round shaped kabab.

Which are then shallow fried or deep fried till crisp golden.

Hara bhara kabab are served as an appetizer with cilantro mint chutney.
