 25th January 2009 was the day i posted my first recipe.Its 3 years now and i just can't believe that i am blogging for last 3 years.Its been a wonderful journey with you all and hope to continue the journey.Thanks to internet and blogger which gave me a platform to show my recipes which are read by many readers and encouraged me with there valuable comments and suggestions.

I thank each one of you who visit my blog and also i thank the fellow bloggers and the readers who take time to comment here.Since last year i am not getting much time to comment on other blogs but i do read blogs which i am following.

 Ingredients :-

Soya granules 1 cup
Mixed vegetables (carrot,cauliflower,beans and peas) 2 cups Boiled
Potatoes 2 boiled,peeled and mashed

Soak soya granuales in warm water for 10 minutes.Remove from water and squeeze the water out.Boil all the vegetables and squeeze the water out.

Grind soya into fine paste.

Mix soya,vegetables,onions,green chillies,ginger,mint leaves,salt.garam masala powder,coriander powder, cumin powder and roasted gram flour.Mix it with hand and ensure that the dough is dry.

Soak the skewer (wooden) in water for 10 minutes.This is done to ensure that skewer doesn't burn while grilling.

Skew the dough on to the skewer.

Grill until brown.These can be done on a tawa too.

My grill didn't work so i did these kababs on tawa.Just apply oil on the tawa and place the skewer on the tawa.Turn  it around until brown in colour.
