  1. Make sure your kabab batter doesn’t contain any water while you blend it or else it will get mushy.
  2. You can even bake or deep fry these kababs as per your convenience.
  3. Garnish your Hara bhara kababs with chopped onions and lemon slices before serving.
  4. To make it even tastier, you can add cheese and corn in the middle of the kabab while you are shaping them.
  5. If you don’t want to eat plain kababs, then you can make a Hara bhara kabab burger too!
