Here are some appetizing Tikkis made with cabbage and potatoes for your evening tea-time snack. Give a twist to your usual Aloo Tikkis by adding some finely sliced cabbage, roasted chickpea flour, some spices and roasted and coarsely powdered peanuts to give a slight crunch to this delicious and nutritious snack.
For more variations, stuff these Tikkis in parathas along with some sliced onion, ketchup and lettuce to make into rolls. They are not only filling but can be packed as lunch box meals too. Similarly they can be made into sandwiches by stuffing them in between two slices of bread with a generous amount of chutney as a spread.
