Top 10 Punjabi Tikki Recipes

Tikki is one of the most popular Indian snacks. More than calling it a snack, it is a category of snacks by its own right, because there are so many varieties of tikkis that one can make, right from the simple aloo based ones to rich dry fruit stuffed ones!

Every Indian party will have at least one type of tikki on the starter spread. From roadside vendors to star hotels, everybody has tikki on the menu. Whether it is a hot, buttery tikki enjoyed on the roadside with Green Chutney and ketchup, or a platter of exotic tikkis served on a special occasion, the tikki never fails to please!

The best part is that you don’t need an occasion to enjoy a tikki. You can make tikkis for tea-time, for a kitty party or for a kiddies’ party because it is easy to make and tastes simply fab when served with chutney or a dip. You can even use tikkis innovatively. Add them to a sizzler, or use them as patties for burgers. Cut a tikki and add it to a pulao or salad instead of bread croutons. The spicy succulence of the tikki adds a dimension of fun to any dish.

1. Aloo Tikki is a famous street food from Delhi. You can even stuff it between a burger bun and make an Aloo Tikki burger, drizzle with some chole, curd and chutney and transform into a lip-smacking chaat like the aloo tikki chaat or simply relish it as it is.

The use of cooked semolina as the base instead of potatoes brings about an exciting twist to the tikki tale. 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. This incomparably tasty Rava Green Peas Tikki is sure to become a whopping success at the dining table! Also do try other tikkis like Paneer Tikki and Corn and Capsicum Tikki .

Aloo tikki is a versatile and popular potato preparation, that can be had as it is, or as part of a gravy or a chaat preparation. Here is a relatively simple version that you can prepare with readymade spice powders. If required, ask an elder to help you mash the potatoes. Cut the tikkis into different shapes using cookie cutters, to make them look more interesting. Cornflake Cookies , Jam Pinwheels , Cheese Garlic Buns , Quick Dahi Vada and Tacos with Baked Beans are a few more exciting recipes that kids will enjoy cooking with the help of elders.

Tikki chole is one of the most popular chaats in North India. One afternoon when I was left with the task of feeding my hungry grandchildren, I thought of making the most of what was available on my kitchen shelf. I then chanced upon this recipe which has today become very popular amongst my family and friends. It took some time to master the art of making crisp alu tikkis. I use old potatoes (which are commonly referred to as wafer potatoes) to make the tikkis crisp and a slice of soaked bread to not only bind the potatoes but also to make them more crunchy. The paneer filling for tikkis uses tomato purée which adds a sharp tangy taste to it. If you are one of those who would like to avoid deep frying tikkis (all of us think it a crime to eat deep fried food), you can shallow fry on a griddle (tava) using a little oil. Chole along with these tikkis makes a heavy snack. But you will enjoy the tikkis by themselves with a little green chutney.
