An interesting way of combining an unusual leafy vegetable like mint and a pulse like masoor. As I have used only 1 teaspoon of oil to cook these tikkis, they are really amazing being moreover relatively light in terms of calories as compared to the deep fried tikkis which are loaded with oil. Serve these protein, calcium and iron rich tikkis as a starter or as a snack during the day.

2 tbsp grated low- fat paneer
2 tbsp whole wheat bread crumbs
salt to taste
1 tsp green chilli paste
1 tsp oil for greasing and cooking

For Serving
green chutney

Method
  1. Clean, wash and soak the masoor in enough water overnight. Next day drain well.
  2. Combine the masoor with 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles or till the masoor is soft and slightly overcooked, but not mashed.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  4. Drain the masoor and discard any excess water.
  5. Combine the cooked masoor with all the remaining ingredients in a deep bowl and mix well.
  6. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter round and flatten them in between your palms.
  7. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each tikki over a slow flame, using ? tsp of oil till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  8. Serve hot with green chutney.

Handy tip:

  1. Use the discarded masoor water to make chapati dough, as it is rich in plenty of nutrients.
