Dahi Ke Kebab/Cutlet With a Twist

healthy tikki Tikkis or cutlets are a widely popular snacking option in India. It won;t be wrong to say that tikki rules the Indian snacking world, with every other street vendor selling these potato cutlets. I have grown up eating these savory snacks. My mom's sister makes delectable tikkis. I remember how she used to line up all the kids and then start making tikkis - serving each of us with those lip-smacking snacks with home made sweet tamarind dip. My mouth is watering as I am writing. I think she makes the best tikkis in the world. Coming back to this dahi ke kebab recipe. Yes, I have used 1 boiled potato here, but along with it, I have included the leftover veggies that I made for lunch. I had made santula bhajja for lunch, which is a blend of raw papaya, raw banana, parwal (pointed gourd), lauki (bottle gourd), potato, brinjal, and turai (ridge gourd). So what better way to use these green veggies than stuffing them in cutlets? These definitely made the tastiest

Beans Oatmeal Tikkis/Cutlets

beans tikki Ever since I came across beans paruppu usli recipe shared by dear Chitra di, I have become a big lover of this south Indian recipe and have made it several times thereafter, with variations. Today, I had a few leftover dalia idlis since morning, so I decided to use the same for this recipe in place of the typical tuvar dal. It didn't disappoint either. Ingredients Boiled Beans sabzi with steamed dalia idlis- 1 cup ( Here's the recipe for dalia idlis) Oat meal- 1/2 cup Hung curd- 2-3 tbsp Chaat masala/ black salt Oil for greasing tawa +1/2 tsp for frying beans Rai (mustard seeds) Urad dal - 1/2 tsp 1 onion salt, haldi, red chilly powder 1 boiled potato Procedure beans oat tikki Let's make beans stir fry first.
