Recipe: Rajma Tikki

So lately, I was off the blogging. Reasons behind the same was my new born baby. Now since he’s 10 months old and can keep himself busy while I make tasty dishes for him, I am back to the kitchen.

I have started off the juggling between handling the kitchen and handling little P with a delicious tikki, which is actually inspired from the famous Galouti Kebabs form Lucknow, well the vegetarian ones.

Yes, if not entirely then atleast partially it is inspired from Rajma Galouti Kebab alon gwith masalas of my choice. Also, I made the tikkis using Appe Pan, which is pretty time saving, especially you are attending the kid along with the cooking. But if you have all the time in the world, you can surely go on with the traditional way of tikki making, i.e. using the Tava.

So, here’s the recipe for the Rajma Tikki:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Rajma, soaked overnight and boiled
  • 1 boiled potato
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Sriracha Sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp chaat masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil as required

Day -14 : Nariyal – Kothmir Tikki ( Coconut Coriander Pattis) – Recipe

This is a vegan dish, and Indians can have this dish during their various fasts ( except those which require strict no-food fast like Karwa Chauth). This is an amazing combination of two opposite, yet equally strong flavors.

It’s a simple, yet yummy recipe. To make these tikkis all you have to do is, follow these steps…

2 cups Fresh coconut (grated)

1 cup coriander (chopped)

1 tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

4 tsp green chilli paste

For outer covering:

500 gm potato (boiled and peeled)

2 tsp salt

2 tsp green chilli paste

1 tbsp coriander (chopped)

Process:

  • For the stuffing, take all stuffing ingredients in a flat plate and mix them together.
  • In a separate flat plate, mash boiled potatoes, add salt , chillies, coriander and mix well.
  • Take a 2” portion of potato mixture on the palm.
  • Pat it flat, stuff with the coconut coriander mixture and seal it by pressing the edges together.
  • Form flat round patties or shape it as desired. Roast golden brown on a hot tava(griddle) using oil.
  • Serve with tamarind-date chutney.
