Akhrot kabab is one of the tastiest and rich snack from the Mughlai Cuisine made with walnuts, cashews, almonds, mawa and paneer. I have added a spoonful of Tangier spice mix which  adds to the flavours.  It is the most delicious vegetarian kabab I have ever tasted.

Walnuts ......... 1/2 cup (boiled and chopped)
Amonds ....... 2 tbsps (powdered)
Cashew nuts .. 2 tbsps (powdered)
Walnuts ......... 2 tbsps (powdered)
Potato ........... 1 (boiled and grated)
Green peas ... 1/4 cup (boiled and crushed)
Paneer ........ 1/4 cup (grated)
Khoya ......... 2 tbsps
Green chillies ... 1 tsp (finely chopped)
Ginger paste .... 1 tsp
Garlic paste ..... 2 tsps
Tangier spice mix ... 1 tsp
Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder ....... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder ... 1/2 tsp
Salt .................... to taste
Olive oil .......... 4 tbsps


Soak the walnuts for few hours and boil them. Cut them into small pieces.

In a plate set aside khoya, boiled and chopped walnuts, boiled and crushed green peas, finely chopped green chillies, and the spice powders.( Tangier spice mix, turmeric powder, cumin powder and red chilli powder)

In a second plate set aside grated paneer, mashed potato and powdered dry fruits.

In a pan heat one tbsp of olive oil and saute the ginger garlic paste.

Tip in the green chillies and spice powders.

Stir fry to mix them well.

Now add the boiled walnuts, green peas, khoya. Add salt to taste.

 Saute well. Remove the mixture in a large bowl or plate.
Add the grated paneer, mashed potato and the powdered dry fruits.
Mix everything together.

Make the kababs / cutlets of the desired size. You can dip them in the dry fruit powder if you like. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the kababs until done.
