Air fryer Corn Swiss Chard Kebab

Air fryer Corn & Swiss Chard Kebab

This is a take on the famous Makai Palak Kebab that is famous in India, particularly the monsoons when Fresh / Sweet Corn is available in abundance. Most kebabs are served with this yummilicious Dahi Wali Hari Chutney (a dip made with fresh herbs’ paste mixed with hung curd) while I served mine with this Chaat wala Hari Chutney.

Kebab vs Cutlet / Tikki

Although they (might be) used interchangeably, kebab and tikki are as different as chalk and cheese. Kebab is more meat based (with veg/vegan substitutes like paneer, soya, TVP, Rajma, Chickpeas) while tikki is almost similar to a cutlet with a starch base like potato and sometimes bread crumbs are used for binding.

Many kebabs also fried onion paste for flavouring along with whole spice powders like clove powder, cardamomm powder, especially the ones from Lucknow or Avadhi Cuisine.

Tandoor is used to ‘bake’ the kebabs while basting them midway (sometimes even with ghee) to give out that smoky, characteristic flavour to kebabs.

Swiss Chard and Corn Kebab

Having narrowed down my options to a very unique lauki kebab from the famous Moti Mahal cookbook – “On the Kebab Trail”, the tender lauki was amiss each time it was bought. It got made into several other things, except the kebab. Using Swiss Chard was a challenge that I wanted to take up, and being the monsoon soon there was tender corn too.

This kebab goes to the Kebab challenge that the hostess Sujata set us for this month for Shhh Secret Cooking Challenge where a pair of participants secretly exchange (virtually) a set of ingredients that the others must guess. My partner Poonam dished out this amazing falahari (fasting special) kebab with raw banana and Amaranth flour while she gave me Swiss Chard and Corn which resulted in this melt-in-the-mouth kebab.

FAQs about this kebab:

  • Air fryer makes this almost Zero oil, although the tava / OTG option could yield similar results.
  • No Bread crumbs or maida is used making this Gluten Free.
  • If one wishes, you can add paneer but we loved it vegan.
  • If you don’t have swiss chard, you can simply replace it with Baby spinach and follow the same process. Kale might also work, but I haven’t tried it.

    I always look for ways I can get chard into the kid’s plates. That is the greens I get easily in my local supermarket, but rarely make use of it. This kebab certainly will go well with them too.
