Everyone enjoys snacking on some crispy, crunchy finger food! Dipping it in some sauce just makes it all the more yummy…along with a delicious drink to wash it all down👌😁…although a cup of hot tea does the trick too!
These Sesame Soya Tikkis make for a great starter/ snack as they are loaded with yummy & healthy ingredients…no frying…no oily mess! Serve these with my homemade Schezwan Sauce and some Iced Green Tea Limeade…perfecto!
They even make a great lunch box for kids…😊 Let’s get started..
Yield: 6-8 medium Tikkis
Equipment: a non stick pan, a mixing bowl, measuring cups/ spoons, a spatula.
2 nos. large boiled & mashed potatoes
1/4 cup soya granules
1/4 cup grated carrot (you can add any veggies of your choice or skip them too)
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 tbsp chopped mint leaves
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
1 tsp chopped green chillies (*omit it when you are cooking these for kids)
1 tsp roasted cumin pwd
1/2 tsp red chilli pwd*
salt to taste
2-3 tsp oil to shallow fry the tikki
1/2 cup slightly roasted white sesame seeds
Soak the dry soya granules in one cup of warm water for 15 mins & squeeze out all the water well. Place it aside.
Next, add all the above ingredients except oil and soya granules in a mixing bowl, mix them well. Then add the soya granules & combine everything well.
Next, shape the mixture in equal sized Tikkis, roll them in the sesame seeds and set them aside. Heat the non stick pan, once it’s hot enough, place the tikkis on the pan & add few drops of oil around them. Cook them on medium flame for 3-4 mins on both sides or until the seeds turn golden brown and crunchy. That’s it, serve them piping hot! 😀
Healthy snacks are ready!
