  3. Add the tomato ketchup, kabuli chana, salt and pepper, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while lightly mashing it with a potato masher once in between. Keep aside.

  4. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and roll each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter round flat tikki.

Potato Tikki is a wonderful combination of boiled potatoes, green peas and green chillies. This tikki makes up a good snack. It can either be shallow fried or deep fried.I really love these tikki
