The desi answer to pre-fabricated burgers! Lightly buttered bread plays host to crisp and sumptuous potato tikkis, crisp lettuce and juicy carrots, with a splash of tomato ketchup too, making the Potato Tikki Sandwich a delicious meal-on-the-go. The use of green peas adds streaks of its nutty texture to the potato mix, while nigella seeds and amchur powder impart a tantalizing flavour. You will love the burst of flavours in the tikki, as well as the unique mouth-feel of crisp tikkis sandwiched between the softest of soft breads.
