Corn and capsicum are a lesson in contrasts. While one is sweet, juicy and yellow, the other is spicy, crunchy and green. See how they complement each other perfectly in everything from texture and flavour to appearance. It is no surprise then that this Corn and Capsicum Tikki turns out to be such an irresistible snack. Nobody can withhold the temptation to bite into one of these green chilli flavoured tikkis, which are oh-so-crisp outside and super soft inside. It is also very easy to prepare because it uses minimal ingredients and does not even require the corn to be boiled before making the dough mixture.

Tarla Dalal    This recipe has been tried here and they were not hard. However make sure you deep-fry the tikkis on a medium or a high flame and not on a slow flame. Do try it again and do let us know how they were. Happy Cooking !!

I was so surprised with this recipe. Without using potato or any other binding agent, this tikkis are made. When you have this tikki, you wont feel like anything is missing. The corn and capsicum with chillies makes this recipe flawless. I love Tarla Dalal for giving us such recipes, which we cannot even think of.
