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.
