Main highlight of this recipe is use of chana dal, masoor dal and mixed sprouts. These are considered to be high in protein, but addition of Paneer improves the quality of the protein. Also use of pulses makes this recipe high in fibre and iron....Serve it immediately with lovely green chutney and see how these tikkis disappear in a few minutes.
