Kamal Kakri Kabab

I always run out of veggie snack options during summer time. While buying my weekly vegetable this week I picked some Kamal Kakri. It was a likeable food option at my parents home but my husband simply refuses to eat it. :-(
However, an old colleague of mine used to get the Kamal Kakri kabab for her packed lunch and I decided to try it this time. The kebabs turned out to be really delicious and hubby dear savoured it.

Here is my very own recipe for making the kababs
