    Cooking the chana dal and cabbage tikkis

    1. Shape a portion of the mixture of healthy cabbage chana dal cutlet into a 63 mm (2½ “) flat round tikki. These tikkis are very soft and a bit sticky. 
    2. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it using ¼ tsp of oil.
    3. Immediately cook it on the tava (griddle) on a slow flame, using ¼ tsp oil. We have cooked in two bactches of 2 and 4 tikkis as the non stick pan was big. NOTE that is is very little oil and you can increase the amount of oil if you are healthy. We suggest you use peanut oil. Peanut oil has the highest amount of MUFA (around 49%) amongst most Indian common cooking oils. The remaining 51% is PUFA and SFA. Most households in western Indian use peanut oil as a cooking medium. If you have to choose amongst the cooking oils, after avocado oil and coconut oil, this peanut oil gets a spot-on. But when compared to other MUFA based oils, this oil is considered to be high in omega-6 fatty acids, which often may tend to harm your body without you realizing it.

    4. Cook till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
    5. Repeat again to make a total of 6 non fried tikki Indian snack.
    6. Serve immediately with green chutney.

    Tarla Dalal    Hi Twarna, Since it is a healthy recipe, we have not tried substituting with any other dal. Also, the combination of cabbage works perfectly with chana dal.

    Most of my childhood memory includes getting yelled at by my mother to eat veggies, but I used to pay no heed to it. However, as time passes, most of us come around to eating vegetables as we are aware of the countless benefits they have for our health. Cabbage is especially one of the world most nutrient dense vegetables readily available for us to enjoy, rich in essential vitamins such as C, B6, K, saturated fat, thiamine, calcium, iron, magnesium phosphorus and a good source of dietary fibres. But I never liked any cabbage recipe other than in noodles. This cabbage recipe when I tried at home was not really appreciated by my family but it was really yummy too. Thanks for sharing this delicious preparation. Keep posting wonderful recipes like this.
