Corn and capsicum are a lesson in contrasts. While one is sweet, juicy and yellow, the other is spicy, crunchy and green. See how they complement each other perfectly in everything from texture and flavour to appearance. It is no surprise then that this Corn and Capsicum Tikki turns out to be such an irresistible snack. Nobody can withhold the temptation to bite into one of these green chilli flavoured tikkis, which are oh-so-crisp outside and super soft inside. It is also very easy to prepare because it uses minimal ingredients and does not even require the corn to be boiled before making the dough mixture.

Loved this recipe. But it was slightly oily so patted the tikki with flour before frying.

   Hi Dhara, yes you can add cheese if you wish to but just remember do not add a lot as while frying it will oozze out, so fry one and see.
