Oil-free Chana Corn Kebab Recipe


  • 1 cup boiled black chickpeas or kala chana
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, finely diced or crushed
  • A handful of coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup boiled sweet corn kernels

Kitchen Tools Used

  • A non-stick flat pan or tawa
  • Mixing bowl


  1. First, in a mixing bowl, add boiled chana (chickpeas) and mash them well using a masher or any big spoon or fork. The boiled chana should be mashed properly.
  2. Then, add diced onion, garlic and chopped coriander and mix.
  3. Next, add in all the spices and salt mentioned in the ingredients list.
  4. Then, add the boiled sweet corn and mix.
  5. Further, make small balls out of the mixture and flatten them on both sides like a kebab shape.
  6. Finally, on a non-stick tawa, bake them on both sides until they are golden brown. Just cook one side once. Don’t flip them often in order to avoid breaking.


  • I suggest you always serve these kebabs with a nice and juicy chutney as by themselves they might feel a bit dry due to being oil-free.
