“Kale Kebabs” my absolute favourite appetiser! It is healthy, gluten-free and guilt-free dish and you are going to love it.

I love Kale, be it raw or in the soups or pestos and most recently in my kebabs! I first had Kale when I first moved to Japan, I didn’t even know how to cook it, and like all Indian green vegetables, I made a curry. It was love at first bite! I love the deep, earthy and robust flavour it brings to the dish, and I love how versatile it is.

Last year, I wanted to make Hara Bhara Kebab, a quintessential vegetarian green kebab recipe from India. Still, I didn’t have any spinach, neither green peas, I know my kitchen was in shambles. But I did have a lot of Kale, so I decided to make these Kale Kebabs.

These Kale Kebabs were such a hit in my home, between my husband and I, we finished more than 12 and me. It is a perfect party pleaser too, I recently made these for Maisha Concept’s launch party, and people loved them.

To keep these Kale Kebabs gluten-free, I make them with chickpea flour and coat them in gluten-free breadcrumbs, but you can use regular breadcrumbs.

You can half fry these in advance and freeze them or store them in a refrigerator.

If you are kebab lover then do check this Chapli kebab and Malai Kebab recipes out.

So do give these Kale Kebabs a try and I am sure you will love them as much as we do!
