  • 2 potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 2 cup spinach microwaved
  • 1 cup peas
  • ¼ cup oats
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp. pepper powder
  • ½ tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. chaat masala or dry mango powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander powder
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. oil for brushing+ more for frying


  • Mash 2 large boiled potatoes. Blend together peas, spinach, grated ginger, green chillies and cilantro leaves and puree in a blender without adding water. Add this paste to mashed potatoes, oats or semolina, garam masala, coriander powder, chaat masala, salt and pepper powder.
  • Mix well.
  • Form round patties with your hands.

For Air frying

  • Preheat Air fryer at 200 C or 390 F for 4 minutes. Air fry the patties after brushing with oil for 10-12 minutes. No need to flip midway. You can use parchment paper to prevent the patties for sticking. Flip midway if using parchment paper. Your hara bhara kebab are done.

For Shallow frying

  • Take a skillet or non-stick pan. Use little oil and fry on both sides till crispy.
  • Serve hot with ketchup, green chutney or dip of your choice.


1. You can cook the spinach by wilting it in a pan and letting its water dry up. Or you can microwave spinach for about 2 minutes and squeeze out the water and use. 2. This is vegan and healthy snack. 3. Using oats makes this recipe gluten free. 4. Add chillies as per taste. You can skip them altogether. 5. If you feel that your mixture feels a bit wet, then add more potatoes and/or oats or semolina to help bind it better. 6. You can also add a whole cashew, almond or walnut on top of each kabab to give it a restaurant feel. 7. While air frying use parchment paper so that your kabab don't stick to the air fryer basket.
