Whenever it comes to kababs, non vegetarians enjoy a lot as most of the kabab dishes are non vegetarian. So here is a vegetarian kabab recipe which you can enjoy and it is full of nutrients as well due to all the greens which go inside it.
Potatoes are required to bind the kabab, though you can reduce the amount of potatoes and add other vegetables like grated carrots, beans etc.
If you are on a diet, you can even back these kababs or cook in a air fryer.
