How to remove extra moisture from the boiled Soybeans
To remove moisture, all you need to hung the boiled soybeans for 20-30 minutes before grinding. Doing this will remove all the water from the soya chunks. Soybeans have lots of water in it, any moisture in the mixture will create difficulty in binding kebabs. And the kebabs will break into pieces while frying.
Can I deep fry the Kebabs
No, you cant. Deep frying the kebabs can break the kebabs and it will lose its original shape. Always Remember to make a thick patty shape of it. And always shallow fry them. You can fry them with little oil on nonstick Tawa too.
This kebab is super crispy from outside and super juicy from inside. Now, wasting no more time, let’s move straight to the step by step recipe.
Steps by Steps Recipe
Boil water in a Pan. When water starts boiling add salt and the soya chunks. After 5minutes, turn off the flame. And let the soybeans dip in the same water for the next 15 minutes.
Now squeeze out all the water from the soybeans. You can hang it for 20 minutes if water remains. Squeezing out all the water is very important, otherwise, you cant bind the kebab mixture together. After removing water, coarse grind the soya chunks.
Now, take the coarse ground soya bean out in a bowl. Add mashed potatoes, chopped ginger-garlic, green chilies, chopped onions to it. Then add all the spices; turmeric powder, pomegranate powder, garam masala, cumin powder, black pepper powder, black salt, chaat masala. Add lemon juice in the end. You can add chopped coriander leaves too. I didn’t add coriander leaves because it was unavailable at my home.
Add besan, and knead into a dough. The dough should neither be too firm, nor too soft.
Divide the mixture into balls. Shape it like kebabs by pressing the balls with hand. Now, Refrigerate the kebabs for 30 minutes. After half an hour, take the kebabs out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Now you can Shallow-fry them for 10 min.
