What are Tikkis? Think starter, and tikki is one of the first options that comes to anybody’s mind! Loved by people of all age groups, tikkis are small, round or oval-shaped snacks, measuring around two or three inches in diameter. Basically, you make a dough of boiled potatoes, sprouts, dals, veggies, herbs and spices in whatever combination you like, shape them into balls, flatten them between your palms and cook them. You can deep-fry or shallow-fry the tikkis. Each of these methods gives you a different texture. Try the Corn and Capsicum Tikki, a deep-fried delight that combines spicy capsicum with juicy corn. Paneer Tikki is one of the most popular examples of shallow-fried tikkis. This method of frying the tikkis in broad shallow pans with lesser amount of oil is especially suitable for soft and fragile tikkis as it is easier to flip over the tikkis and cook them on both sides.
You could also make healthy versions of tikkis by using oats or nachni flour to bind the ingredients in place of mashed potato. You can also hide a lot of healthy ingredients into the tikkis, ensuring that your kids enjoy consuming these and do not throw tantrums.
