I love anything in which i can sneak in the veggies..These tikki ( patties ) is much healthier than the normal potato ones and good for kids too as they will never eat broccoli by itself so its best to present them in this tempting and yummy form of tikkis..

If preparing for kids you can avoid adding green chillies. Serve them hot or at room temperature with your favorite tomato sauce..Enjoy these anytime , filling and healthy at the same time..

(Recipe By Tarla Dalal)

1 tsp olive oil
¼ cup finely chopped onions
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
½ cup finely chopped broccoli
Salt to taste
¼ cup boiled and grated potatoes
2 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese
¼ cup whole wheat bread crumbs for coating
2 tsp olive oil for cooking


1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the onions, ginger-garlic paste and green chillies and sauté for 2 minutes while stirring continuously.
2. Add the broccoli and salt and sauté on a slow flame for another 5 to 7 minutes or till the broccoli is almost cooked.
3. Remove from the flame, add the potatoes and mix well. Keep aside to cool.
4. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into small rounds.
5. Press a little in the centre of each round to make a depression and put 1½ tsp of cheese and shape them into flat tikkis (approximately 1½” in diameter).
6. Roll them in the bread crumbs. Keep aside.
7. Heat a non-stick pan and cook each tikki using ½ tsp of oil till they turn golden brown on both the sides.
8. Cut each tikki into 2 pieces and serve hot.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes. Cooking Time: 15 Makes 4 tikkis.
