Cheese and Broccoli Tikkis, Cheese Cutlet Recipe recipe with step by step photos
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.
To prepare the mixture for cheese and broccoli cutlets, heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan
Once the oil is hot, add the onions.
Add ginger-garlic paste. This homemade Ginger-Garlic Paste has a more dynamic flavour than the store-bought ones
Add green chillies.
Sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes or until the raw smell goes away.
Add broccoli. Wash and clean broccoli florets & chop them finely before using in the Broccoli Cheese Tikki. You can even mince the broccoli florets in a food processor. If you are someone who doesn’t like the flavour of raw broccoli much then blanch the florets and chop them before making the broccoli cheese tikki mixture.
Mix well and sauté on a slow flame for 3 minutes. Overcooking broccoli will lead to nutritional loss. Keep aside to cool completely.
Once cooled, transfer the broccoli mixture into a deep bowl.
Add the potatoes. Wash and pressure cook potato with a cup of water for 2-3 whistles. Once pressure released, cool the potatoes completely, peel, grate them and use in the broccoli cutlet. Ensure there is no or less moisture in the mixture.
Add cheese. The combination of cheese and broccoli tastes delicious and you can use any variety of cheese in this tikki mixture.
Mix well and our cheese and broccoli tikki mixture is ready.
Divide the broccoli cheese mixture into 4 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter round flat tikkis. If you are not able to form tikki, then add 1-2 tbsp of bread crumbs or gram flour.
To cook cheese and broccoli tikki, heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the tikkis on it.
Pour olive oil around the broccoli patties to cook.
Cook till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
Serve cheese and broccoli tikkis immediately. Our section of Tikki Recipes has many such tikki and cutlet recipes that you can relish as evening snacks. Corn and Capsicum Tikki, Oats Tikki with Healthy Green Chutney and Hara Bhara Soya Tikkis are some of my favorite healthy vegetable tikki recipes.
