Kebabs are quite popular in India. These can be created with a variety of ingredient. Here, I am sharing the recipe of kebabs made with Kala Chana or Black Chickpeas, and homemade paneer. Black Chickpeas N Paneer Kebabs make an appetizing and protein-packed snack. It is just perfect for the growing kids as a stuffing for the grilled sandwiches, wraps, burgers etc. Also, an excellent recipe for weight watchers.
