Hara Bhara Kabab with Raw Banana (Plantains)

For as long as I remember, if some restaurant happened to have hara bhara kabab on their menu, I would never miss ordering them. Somehow the color, crunch and taste of these kababs is unbeatable! I have another variant of this Hara Bhara Kabab already on the blog – Check it out!

In this recipe, I have introduced plantains into the recipe. Plantains act like good binding agents and wonderfully complement the other veggies here. I totally skipped the deep frying part and opted to just cook these on a skillet with a little oil. Trust me – these are still as crunchy and tasty as the original kababs. Don’t take my word for it – give this recipe a try! 20 min and you will have this all ready at the dinner table 🙂

Bell Pepper and Cucumber Salad (Tangy cumin-lime dressing)

For a really long time I never liked salads 🙂 It was not that I hated salads, it was more like I wouldn’t try a salad unless it was practically the only thing available at some restaurant! (And that never happened 😉 ) The first time that I really thought about trying salad was when I was browsing through Pinterest. What grabbed my attention was not so much the recipe as the pictures! I am not sure if you would believe me if I said that I was drooling at salad pictures! Even now, after I have become an ardent fan of salads, the most appealing part of any salad is the wonderful colors and texture!
