Healthy Tikki Ideas for Entertaing 

Indians love their Tikkis and Kebabs for daily snacks as well as entertaining. Famous in the north of India, these days tikkis hold a place in every menu. And in reality, there is a lot you can explore too! The only concern in their method of cooking, which is deep-frying. This adds in unnecessary calories and fats to our meals. Here we have shared a few healthy tikki options, which have been cooked on tava with minimal oil. These recipes will facilitate you overcome the notion that tikkis taste god only when they are fried.
