Combine all the ingredients, except the bread crumbs, in a bowl and mix well.
Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into small round flat tikkis. Roll each tikki into bread crumbs so that they are evenly coated from all the sides.
Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep fry each tikki, till they turn golden brown and crisp from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and serve hot.
