Aloo-Methi Ki Tikki

Since so long I wanted to try some tikki’s. Tikki’s always make great combo with evening tea/coffee. A perfect snack to indulge, hot, spicy and yummy. There are many varieties and variations of tikki’s. The tikki which is my all time favourite is aloo-methi ki tikki. A perfect blend of mushy potatoes with pungent smelling fenugreek leaves when get in combo with Indian spices gives a delectable tikki.

Fenugreek leaves are enriched with minerals like potassium, calcium, and iron. Fresh leaves comprises 3 to 5 % of protein. The energy value of the potato is approximately the same as bread, but it is a far better balanced food than bread, particularly in its content of potassium, iron, and vitamins C, B1 and G. The potato is also lower in calories. Because potatoes are a starchy food, they put less work on the kidneys. Google Search

As Ramadan fasts are going to start in a day or two, a simple and fast snack like tikki’s make perfect entry for the evening Iftar snack. As most of the time is spent on Ibadat (praying) during this holy month, a simple snack which is easy to make with handy ingredients like tikki comes to my rescue. So scroll down for the recipe……

These tikkiya are on last moment rush to participate in Iftar Moments Hijri 1431 hosted by Umm Mymoonah @ Taste of Pearl City.

  • Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape each portion into a round, flat tikki.
  • Roll each tikki in bread crumbs in such a way that the tikkis are evenly coated.
