Chef Guntas also shared the following tips in the caption:
- Since this is the healthier version of the recipe - we're using sweet potato instead of regular potatoes.
- Shallow fry the kebabs instead of deep frying them.
- Avoid using bread crumbs to make it healthier but if the mix is not holding shape, you can add bread crumbs as a binding agent.
- These kebabs are protein rich and healthy for snack time.
