PANEER AALOO TIKKIS ( POTATOES AND CHEESE PATTIES )

 

These are delicious mouthfuls of yummy bites and tastes even more heavenly when made into a chaat.

Normally we do not  make so many tikkis , cutlets or patties varieties as no one seems to care for them except me..so once in a while I give into the sole indulgence of my own palate.

I prefer to have them as a chaat with several chutneys and sev, the works. !.thereby making it into a sumptuous mini meal by itself. I also prefer to shallow roast them with drops of oil and it tastes great.

This recipe can be made for vrat / Navarathri and Ekadashi by avoiding onion powder, garlic powder, asafoetida, bread crumbs, rice flour .

 

Ingredients:

1 cup mashed cooked potatoes.
1/2 cup cheese, mozarella, cheddar or even cottage cheese./ use home made paneer for vrat recipe
1 tsp garlic powder ( optional )  skip for vrat
1 tsp onion powder/ skip for vrat
1 tsp green chillies finely minced.
1/2 tsp pepper powder
 salt to taste
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves finely chopped.
1-2 tbsp corn flour/ use sama rice flour
1/4 cup bread crumbs ( optional ) / use arrow root powder / or sago powder
 1tbsp oil for shallow roasting

Method:

Take the mashed potatoes and make sure there should be no lumps. add the cheese, grated and first 8 ingredients  for the tikkis.
Make a smooth firm dough and keep in fridge for 30 minutes.
Remove and shape into small rounds or tikkis . Make a small paste of the corn flour to dip the patties/tikkis and roll over in bread crumbs before shallow frying.
Keep a griddle on heat, place all the tikkis around , add drops of oil and keep flipping till evenly coloured and crusted .
Remove and serve hot with sauces or make them into tikki chaats.
I like to use this recipe for fasting without using garlic powder, onion powder and using only pepper powder and green chillies with chopped coriander leaves for flavorings.
I then  add some thick fresh curds on top and sprinkle some chili powder , cumin powder and make a yummy chaat even for fast!.
