On rainy days, nothing gives greater joy than standing next to a hot and steaming tava on which delicious tikkis are being cooked. When the oil vapours, thick with the aroma of the tikki’s ingredients reach your nostrils, your appetite shoots up! Yet, the fact remains that the traditional tikkis are laden with fat and starchy ingredients. Here is a heart-friendly, low-cholesterol variant made with fibre and protein rich ingredients like soya and chickpeas. With mint leaves, ginger and other flavourful additions, these soft and succulent Chickpea and Soya Tikkis are a real mouth-watering lot. Just take care to roll the tikkis thinly so they get evenly cooked.
