Scrumptious to the core, these mouth-watering Suran Chana Dal Tikkis feature flavourful yam bound together by an aromatic powder of freshly roasted chana dal.

This winning team gets a further boost by the addition of spice powders, herbs and flavour-givers like onions, ginger and garlic.

Serve these tikkis immediately because they are super-crispy, and this great texture will be lost as the tikkis cool. Green chutney is also a must-have for a totally masti experience.

You can serve scrumptious Deep-fried Delights like these tikkis for High Tea Party .

Is it possible to bake these in the oven instead of deep frying?

This tiki is one of the best I have tasted... From the time I ate a kebab in a 5 star restaurant with yam, I was wondering how to do it. With dal, this is a healthy recipe. Tarla dalal site just has anything and everything one can cook... For a working women like me, post marriage , this site would not only help in making a variety of foods, but also in picking recipes based on quick or pregnancy or brings smiles and appreciations when you bring yummy platter even for diabetic people! Love this site!
