Kala Chana Kebabs is an easy lunch box idea for kids. You can make these quickly and I have added veggies to make them healthier. They can be a perfect healthy alternative to burger patties. I like to enjoy these by themself along with chutney of ketchup. You can even place them in a paratha, burrito or roti and make a roll with it. They are perfect for appetizer for parties. You can enjoy these while you are on diet as they are extremely healthy. They are high in protein and fiber and makes a filling snack or meal.

I send them for school lunches and they are so filling. In this recipe we are not adding any additional flour or potatoes hence they are healthy.
