Method

Step 1


Add salt to the mashed potatoes and knead till smooth. Set aside. Heat two tablespoons oil in a non stick pan, add cumin seeds, asafoetida, ginger, green chillies and green peas and a little salt. Sauté for two to three minutes.

Step 2


Add a little lemon juice and spread on a plate to cool. Add coriander leaves and coconut and mix. Take a portion of mashed potatoes in damp palms, make a dent in the center, fill it with coconut and peas mixture and close in the edges to enclose the stuffing.

Step 3


Press gently and roll the edges to smoothen the sides. Keep it in the refrigerator for five to seven minutes. Heat a little oil on a non stick tawa and shallow fry the tikkis on low heat until they turn light brown or till they become crisp.

Step 4


Serve the tikkis hot with coriander and mint chutney.
