For the betroot tikki recipe

  1. Cook the beetroot in a pan or pressure cooker and drain them. Peel them nicely and grate them from the thick side of a grater and keep aside.
  2. For the beetroot tikki mixture, take grated beetroot in a deep bowl.
  3. Add the grated carrot. The combination of beetroot and gajar works really well.
  4. Quickly soak a bread slice in water, press and remove all the water and crumble and add it to the bowl.
  5. Now, add the coriander. It provides a subtle earthy flavour to the tikki mixture.
  6. Add chaat masala. It adds a peppy flavour to the mixture. If you do not have chaat masala, then add fresh lemon juice.
  7. Add the chilli powder.
  8. Now add the dried mango powder. Even a hint of amchur gives tangy flavour to the mixture.
  9. Finally, add garam masala. You can increase or decrease the amount of spices according to your personal preference. Refer our Garam masala recipe with step by step images to make a fresh batch at home.
  10. Add cornflour. It binds together all the ingredients. Besan and rice flour can also be used.
  11. Add salt to taste. Combine all the ingredients in the bowl and mix well. If the mixture is too moist and not holding the shape then add a little more corn flour, rice flour or bread slice.
  12. Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions.
  13. Roll each portion into 25 mm. (1”) flat round tikki. You can roll them into any shape you like.
  14. Roll the tikkis in the cornflour till they are evenly coated from all the sides. Coating with corn flour gives a crispy texture on frying. Many people prefer semolina and breadcrumbs for coating, they work well too. 
  15. Heat the oil in a deep kadhai and deep-fry the tikkis, a few at a time, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  16. Drain on an absorbent paper. You can also shallow fry the tikkis instead of deep-frying.
  17. All our beetroot tikkis are fried and ready!!
  18. Serve immediately with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
  19. It is an ideal party starter or evening snack that can be relished with tongue-tickling dips too.
