Tikki, a traditional indian snack is presented with a variation here. The additional soya helps to decrease cholesterol, while the chick peas give the indian flavour to the dish. The tikkis are made in just 1 teaspoon of oil to add only 20 calories to your diet, instead of adding 80 calories by being deep-fried, thus making the snack healthy for the heart.

While this recipe is high protein and quite nutritious, the texture of the soya ruined it for me. It was crumbly and weird
