The Street Favorite: Bun Kebab!


The healthier and more hygienic alternative to the Street Food we all love, Bun Kebabs! Make them at home!
Gram lentil (Channay ki daal) ½ cup
Potatoes 2 cups (boiled & mashed)
Chili powder ½ tsp
White cumin ½ tsp
Black cumin ½ tsp
Water 1 cup
Buns 4
Salt ½ tsp
Ingredients for chutney:
Coriander leaves 1 cup
Mint leaves ½ cup
Green chilies 4
Khatai powder ½ tsp (optional)
Salt ½ tsp
Garlic paste ½ tsp
Yogurt 3 tbsp (optional)

For the chutney, blend all the ingredients. Boil the lentil (daal) with 1 cup water, salt, chili powder, white and black cumin till tender and water dries.
Cool and grind and mix with mashed potatoes, make flat kebabs *dipped in beaten eggs whites and shallow fry.  Cut the bun in threes (horizontally) heat it on tava (flat hot iron plate) with little oil. Assemble it; Put the kebab on the first bun slice, with salad leaves, chutney and onions, closing it with the second slice. To fill the third slice, make an omelet (with salt and red chili only), sliced cucumber and tomato pieces. Ready to serve!
Note: Make sure you get those Bun Kebab buns from a local (desi) bakery. The big large ones.


  1. technically you can only have two halves of a bun. if you add a third, it's not a half anymore!
