We reviewed the 200 gm pack of the Safal Frozen Hara Bhara Veg Kebab. It is priced at INR 80. The pack includes around 10 pieces of the kebabs. All the hara bhara kebabs were unbroken and were similar in shape and size.
To gauge the taste and texture, we deep-fried these kebabs on low to medium heat and gently kept stirring in between. They cooked quickly and had an even brown color. The kebabs did not absorb any excess oil. Also, these did not break during the frying process.
The appetizing green color, the soft interior and crisp exterior amped up the overall experience. The kebabs are well-seasoned and aren’t spicy. While there is nothing wrong about the taste, we feel that it lacks that wow-factor.
