Hara Bhara Kebab

I am so obsessed with kebabs, so just keep thinking of trying and making everytime i feel kebabi... hehe i knw thats  a lame word...
Hara Bhara kebab the name says it all, derives its green color from spinach, some recipes do use green peas, but i am posting the recipe with only spinach. Its winters, and you get loads of these this Green veggies almost everywhere. So its wont be difficult to find them. esp in winters.
Its healthy with the goodness of spinach and homemade fresh paneer. u can use the one that is available in market, but i prefer homemade.
