Vrat means "fast" and these kebabs are designed specifically for those who are fasting. Though these kebabs are specially meant for vrat, you can enjoy them any time you wish. These are No Onion & Garlic kebabs , have them yogurt or Mint & Coriander Chutney. These are very delicious and easy to make.
When Sarah our host gave us Banana as a theme for this month, I,  was very happy, since this is right time to prepare these kebabs.  

In India we celebrate the  Shravan, which is fasting month for Hindus. All types of fasting food is enjoyed during this month and these kebabs are apt for fasting.

Wash and dry the leaves and keep spread them on a tea towel to dry.  When dry.  Place them in a airfryer not on the basket but below the basket or else they will fly while the airfyer is running.
