Chickpeas Kabab is a healthy and protein-rich recipe which you prepare within 30 minutes. My kids did not like pulses but I make sure that they get all protein and minerals. So, I prepared these Kababs by grinding chickpeas into a paste and by adding little spices. Chickpeas are also known as Kabuli Chana, garbanzo beans. These kababs are perfect evening snack with a cup of tea/coffee.
