Sometimes I will get a party mood and will need something crispy.. During my weight loss diet, I started finding out various tasty low fat snacks.. This Beetroot and Chickpeas Kebab is one among them.. This is made using soaked chickpea and the skin of chick pea makes this more crispy and tasty.. It can also be fried in oil to make Vada.. In days your are on a weight loss diet, it is better to make these as kebabs.. Two or Three small patties will make you filled.. This one is rich in protein and if you are a protein freak, you must try it one day.. This is a high protein snack..
