Chickpeas Kebab with Mayonnaise Dip

I have tried so many kebabs , but this one was one of the bests I have made so far.The texture , the taste and the aroma , everything was lajawab :).....and the best part was the protein component of the main ingredient chickpeas , which just can't be ignored.

Ingredients :

1. Chickpeas- 1 1/2 cup
2. Onion- 1/2 of a large one
3. Garlic- 7 to 8 cloves
4. Green chilly- 3
5. Ginger paste- 1 tsp
6. Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
7. Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
8. Black pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
9. Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp
10. Hing- 1/4 tsp
11. Salt to taste
12. Bread crumb- 3/4 cup
13. Maida- 3 tbs
14. Olive oil

Procedure :

Soak the chickpeas in water for 4 to 5 hours and then drain the water. Grind them in a blender into a smooth paste. If needed , add a little water while grinding. Now finely chop onion , green chilly and garlic. Heat 1 tbs oil in a non stick pan and add cumin seeds. When they start spluttering , add onion , chilly and garlic. Fry them until the onion turns translucent. Add the ginger paste , pepper , cinnamon , cumin powder and hing. Mix well and cook until you get a nice aroma of the cinnamon powder. Add the chickpeas paste to the pan and mix well. Season it with salt and keep frying the mixture over low flame until it changes its color and turn a little dark in color. Turn off the heat. In a bowl mix the maida , chickpeas mixture , bread crumb and 1 tbs olive oil. Knead them well and prepare small patties from the mixture. Heat 2 tbs olive oil in a flat surface pan and when oil is smoking hot , add the chickpeas patties one by one and fry both the sides until they turn dark brown in color. Keep them on paper napkin to remove excess oil.

Now a kebab is incomplete without a nice dip. So I prepared a different dip for this kebab , the Mayonnaise dip.

Ingredients :

1. Mayonnaise- 2 tbs
2. Mushroom soy sauce- 1 tsp
3. Vinegar- 1 tsp
4. Black pepper powder- 1/2 tsp

Procedure :

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate it before serving with hot kebabs. I also made a Cabbage salad with this.
