Make these yummy Tikkis for snacks with any leftover food that is sitting in your refrigerator. This is a very good way to use them up. I added some cooked rice, chapatis, few idli pieces and semi-dry potato curry. Do try them at home and create an awesome new dish. It will be gone in no time. You can relish them with either green chutney or ketchup.
- 2-3 chapatis, shredded
- 2-3 idlis, crumbled
- 1 cup cooked rice, mashed
- 1 cup semi-dry potato curry (aloo sabzi), mashed
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tsp. ginger, grated
- 2 green chilies, chopped
- few coriander & mint leaves, chopped
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
- 1/2 tsp. chaat masala powder
- beaten yogurt to bind (opt)
- oil to shallow fry
Dry roast the shredded chapati till crisp. Blend into a coarse powder. Mix it along with the remaining ingredients, except oil.
Knead into a dough by adding some beaten yoghurt if required. Form into round tikkis and refrigerate for an hour.
Heat some oil on a tawa and fry few at a time on both sides till it is light golden in colour.
Drain on a tissue paper. Fry the remaining tikkis and serve them hot with chutney or sauce.
