Chana Daal Kabab

Once I had some leftover chana daal stuffing of daalpuri, and I made some kabab out of it and trust me it turns so good that now this is my every time go for a vegetarian kabab. It’s my favourite now as it is a guilt-free snack because of very less oil used in it, plus they are healthy too because of protein in chana daal, and very easy to prepare.
