Black Bean Kebabs

Do you like burgers? Or veggie pita? Or some filling vegetable wraps? Or looking for some appetizers/snacks? Here I have got all-in-one solution for you all… I wanted to try these kebabs since long and finally, got a chance :) The day I baked some pav in house, I quickly planned to make these protein-packed tikkis. Well, I find black beans lacking in taste if it’s not spiced properly… And so I used ‘Maharastrian Goda Masala’ for strong flavor.
The best possibble way to use black beans, if not in Mexican!!! Try this out and I’m sure you’ll love it… :)

  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and add pressure-cooked black beans along with all the spices.
  2. Mix everything well and once they sound soft, mash them well.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a big bowl and let it cool down to room temp.
  4. Add cornflour just to get the binding consistency and mix everything well.
  5. Divide the mix in 8-10 equal balls and flatten them to make tikkis in shape.
