Pure Mediterranean Vegan BBQ solution with spices
Our super Chef Jagth came up with a brilliant idea during his first meeting for our cooking demonstration which brought our interest for Vegan community which is also is an ideal recipe for a BBQ party.
This is the story of Chef Jagath’s Lentil Kebab Recipe,
Kebab is an Arabic dish in which small pieces of meat are cooked on skewers along with some cut vegetables like onion, tomatoes, bell peppers etc. These are then cooked on a grill or a BBQ.
But Lentil Kebab is a totally vegan dish where usually a mixture of lentils, garlic, chili, some Sri Lankan spices thinly wrapped around the skewers and then grilled in a tandoor.
The kebabs are crisp from outside and soft, moist, and juicy from inside. There are many variations of kebabs are made as meat, seafood and also vegetables. These are popular during festive seasons or celebrations.
They can be prepared in advance for any BBQ party and then can be cooked on a BBQ outside during a party. It can become a group activity in a party. They need to be cooked on a slow heat so that the spices taste well and mix with the mixture.
Masoor Dal (whole red lentil)is a very important part of the vegetarian diet in Indian Cuisine.
Masoor Dal contains a high level of protein. It also contains fiber, folate, vitamin B1, and minerals. It helps to lower the cholesterol and helps in managing blood sugar. It is a good source of calcium, potassium, and iron. It is rich in antioxidants.
So then let us combine these healthy ingredients to make a very appetizing dish to treat our taste buds.
This is a good way to feed kids who don’t like to eat masoor. Making the kebab on a stick makes it more appealing for the kids. They eat them without making any fuss.
The kebab tastes good with yogurt and mint dip. They can also be used to make a wrap with fresh veggies such as carrots, capsicum, lettuce or cucumber.
Here is the recipe for this vegan kebabs made with Lentils and Sri Lankan spices. It is super healthy and is both vegan and gluten-free.
So friends do make these healthy kebabs for your family and friends and please share your comments and experience!
