Lentil Kebabs – Chana Dal Kebabs

Chana dal or Bengal gram is a variety of chickpea that is sold hulled and split; it is one of the most important pulses in Indian cooking and is very nutritious: high in protein and dietary fibre and a good source of iron. It has many culinary uses; for example it is ground to produce the flour known as besan, which is used for both sweet and savoury dishes. These kebabs are a delicious vegetarian option for the barbecue.
