Sprouted Kala Chana Seekh Kababs, can it be made without sprouting?

To add more nutritional value to these kababs, i just soaked Kala Chana previous night and made sprouts out of it.

If you wish not to sprout it it’s fine. Go ahead and just boil soaked chana and use it making these kababs.

So here goes the receipe which is so easy to make Sprouted Kala Chana Seekh Kababs.
