Quinoa Galouti Kebabs | Veg Galouti Kebab

Galouti means Galawat which means melt in the mouth and so the ingredients used in these kebabs all need to be really fine and smoothly minced. There are a lot of versions of these kebabs including veg and non veg and I have innovated my veg version of delicious melt in the mouth Quinoa Galouti Kebabs.
Quinoa Galouti Kebabs is a delicious and a rich veg version of a kebab recipe which calls for boiled quinoa, boiled yam (suran) minced together with kebab spices and a green paste. I call it a green paste which is prepared from coriander some mint leaves, brown onions with richness of cashews and fresh cream. Kebab masala is now easily available in the market so I prefer using the ready packs. However, one can also chose to make it at home. The magic to my recipe is adding the smoky flavor to the kebabs. Just like any tadka is incomplete without garlic, similarly kebabs are incomplete without the smoky flavor of coal. Galouti Kebabs are never deep fried as they are so soft and melt in the mouth and are usually cook or fried in a pan preferably non stick pan with little oil or ghee. Lesser the oil or ghee used is better to keep the kebabs intact.
