Tikki Recipes, Collection of Tikki Recipes. Foodies are game for a tikki any time of the day! We’ve even seen people who have tikkis with their morning tea – are you one of them? Even if you aren’t such a die-hard fan, we are sure you love tikkis too, because everybody does. Served with peppy chutneys like Mint Chutney, Sweet Chutney, Green Chutney, ketchup or curd-based dips, tikkis are so popular and varied that they classify as a special category in Indian cooking. Originally popular in North and Western India, they are now enjoyed by Indians all over the world. It is now common to find Aloo Tikkis served even in small eateries in remote parts of the country!

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.

Healthy Tikkis

While most tikkis are potatoe based, we have innovated the basic tikkis to a healthier option. Potatoes have been substituted with oats in this Oats and Moong Dal tikki  to make a fibre and protein rich snack.

Diabetic-friendly ingredients like chana dal and cabbage, flavoured elegantly with mint leaves and cumin seeds powder, make brilliant tikkis! The crispness of the Chana Dal and Cabbage Tikki brought about by the interplay of chana dal and curds is indeed remarkable, but must be had fresh off the tava to enjoy the perfect texture. Being cooked with minimal oil, these tikkis are light but still sumptuous enough to keep you going till the next meal.

Deep Fried Tikkis

Deep Fried Tikkis are super tasty. Our corn and capsicum tikkis are a lesson in contrasts. While one is sweet, juicy and yellow, the other is spicy, crunchy and green. . Nobody can withhold the temptation to bite into one of these green chilli flavoured tikkis, which are oh-so-crisp outside and super soft inside.

The use of cooked semolina as the base instead of potatoes brings about an exciting twist to the rava green pea tikki. Once cooked, the semolina dough is used just like mashed potatoes. It is packed with an exciting green peas stuffing and deep-fried till crisp. Since rava itself is known to impart an exciting crispness, you don’t even need a coating of bread crumbs for these tikkis.

Aloo and methi are made for each other! Whether as a subzi or a tikki, the twosome is sure to win the hearts of all diners, young and old. In this particular Aloo Methi Tikki, the presence of methi is strongly felt as it is used in both fresh and dried forms. The tikki is further enhanced with common spice powders and effective ingredients like cumin seeds, ginger, onions, and so on. 

Shallow Fried Tikkis

Shallow Fried Tikkis. Paneer tikki is such a popular snack! this version is made even more irresistible with a rich dry fruit stuffing that complements the soft paneer very well. Fresh paneer together with chopped coriander and green chillies, rolled in flour and shallow- fried to perfection.

Tikkis are popular street food in Delhi

The tikki is one of the most popular street foods in the Delhi region. As you pass by vendors selling tikkis, you can hear the sizzling sound of tikkis being shallow-fried with oil and ghee on large tavas. The tikkis can be enjoyed just like that, accompanied by some chutney, or they can be made into a chole tikki chaat,  topped with chole, curds, sev, chopped onions and tomatoes, seasoned with peppy spice powders, and garnished with coriander.

One of the most popular street foods, Aloo Tikki is an evergreen one too, loved by several generations of Indians. Hot and crisp aloo tikkis are to be relished right off the tava, to warm your body and soul even on a cold, rainy day! 

Tikkis are also popularly served as appetizers or starters at parties and in restaurants. Normally, when they are served as appetizers or cocktail accompaniments at parties, the tikkis are made small and bite-sized, so that they can be handled easily by the guests. Many big restaurants offer tikki platters, where you can taste many varieties of tikki at one go, accompanied by salads and a few types of chutneys and dips. Tikki sizzlers, where the tikkis are served piping hot on a sizzler plate, topped with chole, salads and sauces, is also gaining popularity now.
