Bean Kebab / Kidney Bean Tikki

Yesterday I was browsing through my recipes collection to find something for december’s first week CCChallenge , but no luck . I couldn’t find a single recipe that can be made with the ingredients available at home. In the evening I went to the stationary shop to buy some colors for my daughter and there I saw few books hanging with the labels 150 recipes . My eyes were shinning and I immediately picked all of them . Those books were collection of 150 recipes in various categories like sweet recipes , party recipes , dal recipes ,street food recipes and so on and the price was extremely pleasing. So I bought 4 books and came home smiling like I have achieved something .

Finally I browsed through those books and was very happy to learn many wonderful recipes. One of the recipe from the book labelled as kids party theme recipe is this bean kebabs . And seriously this is perfect for kids as my daughter loved it.

    I did the same thing the other day Sapana. I went to a store to pick up some stuff and did not find what I was looking for. There was a book store near by walked into the store looking for cookbooks. I noted down the name of the books that caught my eye and came back home to order them online. I mention it to my husband, he was like, how many cookbooks do you need? You already own quite a few books. Hearing him I lost all the enthusiasm and did not order any book. I will order at least one of those books today.

    Bean kebabs look great and your presentation is even more tempting.

    As a child, I did not like beans, but I suspect that I would have had a different reaction, had I been served these bean kebabs. Thank you so much for contributing to MLLA. And Happy New Year!
