Diabetic-friendly ingredients like chana dal and cabbage, flavoured elegantly with mint leaves and cumin seeds powder, make brilliant tikkis! The crispness of the Chana Dal and Cabbage Tikki brought about by the interplay of chana dal and curds is indeed remarkable, but must be had fresh off the tava to enjoy the perfect texture. Being cooked with minimal oil, these tikkis are light but still sumptuous enough to keep you going till the next meal.

  2. Transfer the paste into a bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and keep aside.
  4. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it using ¼ tsp of oil.
  5. Shape a portion of the mixture into a 63 mm (2½ “) flat round tikki and immediately cook it on the tava (griddle) on a slow flame, using ¼ tsp oil, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.

   Hi Twarna, Since it is a healthy recipe, we have not tried substituting with any other dal. Also, the combination of cabbage works perfectly with chana dal.

Most of my childhood memory includes getting yelled at by my mother to eat veggies, but I used to pay no heed to it. However, as time passes, most of us come around to eating vegetables as we are aware of the countless benefits they have for our health. Cabbage is especially one of the world most nutrient dense vegetables readily available for us to enjoy, rich in essential vitamins such as C, B6, K, saturated fat, thiamine, calcium, iron, magnesium phosphorus and a good source of dietary fibres. But I never liked any cabbage recipe other than in noodles. This cabbage recipe when I tried at home was not really appreciated by my family but it was really yummy too. Thanks for sharing this delicious preparation. Keep posting wonderful recipes like this.
