Anyone that knows me well is fully aware that chickpeas are one of my favourite foods. They are cheap to buy, easy to prepare, and are packed full of fibre to help with digestion as well as being a great source of plant-based protein. And, they are SO versatile (just check out my Chocolate Hummus!).
These kofta kebabs are a great way to jazz up the simple chickpea. If you like falafels, then you are going to love these!
The trick is in the seasoning. I went for a tasty mix of garam masala, cinnamon, and coriander. A pinch of salt and pepper and a sprinkle of chilli flakes gives even more flavour to the kebabs.
Admittedly, they took a couple of attempts to get them to the right consistency so they would be BBQ-able but I’m glad I stuck with it as they are just delicious.
I didn’t know kofta cravings were a thing, but since I started creating the recipe, these simple kebabs have become a weeknight staple.
Crispy on the outside
Fluffy in the middle
These are perfect to make and shape in advance and simply cook them when you need them. Try them with a green salad and a drizzle of Lemon Tahini Dressing for a simple supper. And you can always double the ingredients to have for lunch the next day!
