This is the quickest ever tikkis I have made.While the rice was in the cooker ,I placed the
beetroot and potato on the upper tray.
Next i put ,green chilli,ginger,spices,roasted gram dal, then one grind in the mixer.
Next added the boiled beetroot, potato , and breadcrumbs . Another mix in the blender.
Added onions and that’s it .Shallow fried ..Done! Healthy ,nutrious tikkis within minutes.
Good for folks who have less time on their platter!
For the recipe

3 green chillies
1 inch piece ginger
1-2 tsp. pepper powder

1 cup breadcrumbs
1 chopped onion/spring onions
1 tsp. Saunf
Mint leaves/ coriander leaves/ methi / curry ( your choice)

You could shape like Kola urundai and deep fry too.
The same can be made into balls, fried and tossed in chilli sauce for a variation.
