- To shape the kababs place one tablespoon of mixture between your palms and roll in to small balls.
- Now coat the balls in to bread crumbs then roll again between your palms to stick well to the kababs and repeat the process one more time to get the crispy coating of bread crumbs on kababs.
- Deep fry the kebab till it turns golden brown. fry on high flame and turn them occasionally to cook evenly from all sides.
- Once cooked, serve immediately with spicy chutney or tomato ketchup.
- Do not add chat masala to these kababs as sourness of curd is already there. Use fresh curd to avoid too much sourness.
- Little amount of sugar can be added to balance the sourness(if required)
- Leave the hung curd uncovered in the fridge for few hours to get extra thick hung curd that will need less binding agent(besan).
- Use roasted besan to avoid raw taste in kababs. Alternatively you can grind rosted chana dal.
- Do not turn these too quickly to avoid breaking.
