Veg hara bhara kabab are one of those dishes which have permanently made place in my weekly menu, mainly because it’s the yummiest way to eat spinach. We only have a handful of recipes with spinach which the family likes to eat without any fuss. Spinach is a wonder leafy vegetable. Spinach is an excellent source of Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and loads of Vitamins and minerals. It’s a good source of dietary fiber. The best way to eat spinach is with added Vitamin C sources to aid in the Iron absorption.
