Firstly, prepare the batter. Rinse the chana dal and soak it in a bowl for an hour.
After an hour, drain the water and put the dal in the pressure cooker with garlic, ginger, green chilies and 1 cup of water and pressure cook them for 3 whistles.
Once done, turn off the flame. Then, add the pressure cooked ingredients, spinach, and the green peas to the blender with a little water. Blend them into a smooth paste.
Now is the time to transfer this blended paste to a large mixing bowl and add the paneer, salt, garam masala, chaat masala and 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to it. Mix well.
Now take a small amount to make tikki-like structure. Roll it on your palms.
Prepare a flour- water paste in a bowl using the all purpose flour and water. Spread the remaining bread crumbs in a plate.
Heat the refined oil in a kadhai over a medium flame. Now, first dip the kebabs in the flour- water mixture and then roll them in the breadcrumbs.
Next, deep fry the kebabs until they turn golden brown from both the sides. Take them out of the kadhai and drain the excess oil using the clean paper towels.
Serve and enjoy!!
