What are Tikkis?

  1. What are tikkis? Tikkis are small round or oval-shaped snacks, usually around 2 or 3 inches in diameter. Normally, potatoes are mixed with other ingredients like herbs, spices, dals, sprouts and other veggies too. This dough-like mixture is then shaped and cooked. They can be deep-fried or shallow-fried. Nowadays, we also encounter healthy versions that are baked or tava-cooked. We also see health-conscious people going for ingredients like oats and nachni flour to bind their tikkis instead of mashed potatoes.

Tasted very good but took about an hour to pan fry the tikkis on pan. Can you please post oven baking / oven broil cooking instructions so that all the tikkis can be made same time

Tarla Dalal    Hi Madhurvita, We have not tried baking these in the oven or broiling. Also, they depend upon the oven you are using. Kindly refer to the instruction manual.

I''ll be honest, nobody in my house is a big fan of broccoli apart from me. I decided to try out the recipe either way since I thought that I would eat it even nobody else did. After a little convincing and the wonderful aroma of the dish I managed to convince them to have a bite. Lo and behold! Nobody could eat just one and the plate was wiped clean. Definitely can''t wait to combine my favourites Go Cheese and Broccoli and try this recipe again. Thank you for sharing!

My daughter doesn''t like broccoli, so I thought of trying these tikkis in which broccoli has been disguised. These were so tasty that she asked for more. Thanks for sharing healthy kids-friendly recipe like this one.

i was skeptical to try this recipe because of broccoli, but when i made these tikkis it was an instant hit amongst my fly. sania loved it so much that she did not realize it has broccoli in it. bread crumbs imparted crisp texture and it looked quite appealing. I made heart shaped tikkis as i could not manage to get star shaped mould..
