If you are a fan of healthy snack recipes that can be prepared in a jiffy, then I am sure you will love this kebab recipe. This is a vegetarian kebab recipe made from potatoes and broken wheat. Broken wheat is a healthy ingredient and I often involve it in my recipes. Mom has made some medu vadas from broken wheat. Broken wheat is known as daliya in Hindi. There was some leftover broken wheat and I used it up with potatoes to make these kebabs and they turned out delicious.

The broken wheat imparts a unique texture to the kebabs, a bit chewy, which perfectly compliments the softness of the potatoes. I have added some cashews for a nice nutty flavor and some raisins for an occasional tangy sweetness. In the end, I had dipped the kebabs in simple batter to have a nice, crispy layer on the outside. Also, it prevents the oil to seep into the kebab and keeps it from disintegrating.

I served these daliya kebabs with a cheese dip. It’s a very simple dip and I have shared the recipe as well. You can serve these with any dip of your liking.

  • When the oil is hot, turn the flame to medium. Carefully drop in a kebab. I fried 3-4 kebabs at a time since my skillet is small. Do not overcrowd. Fry the kebabs on low to medium heat till they become golden brown. This should take about 3-4 minutes. Remove them onto a kitchen towel to drain he excess oil.
