This is my all time favourite whenever I feel like making some snack using potatoes in the evenings, I instantly prefer doing this , it is quick and easy and it is a big hit in my family J . A good Starter for parties, you can even do on the previous day and keep it in fridge and fry it on the next day.
Potatoes: 3 medium sized potatoes boiled and mashed
Onion : one finely chopped
Green chillies : 6 Finely chopped
Ginger : 2” inch piece grated fine
Coriander leaves: handful chopped finely
Curry leaves : a few finely chopped
Corn flour : 2 tablespoons ( Mix it with quarter cup water and keep aside )
Bread crumbs : one cup
Ordinary White Bread : 5 slices ( Dip for a second in water and squeeze out all the water )
Oil for frying
Salt to taste
1. Take a Mixing bowl and add the mashed potatoes, onions, greenchillies, curry leaves, coriander leaves, grated ginger , soaked bread , salt and mix well till it becomes smooth and then make small balls and shape it like oval balls and keep aside .
2. Now dip the tikkis in cornflour mixture and then roll it in the bread crumbs and deep fry in oil in medium heat till golden brown and the tikkis will burn if you fry in high fire .
Note: Dipping in the cornflour or egg and breadcrumbs is optional and it can be deep fried even without this and I had done it without dipping in cornflour and bread crumbs still it is very crispy but it should be fried in hot oil and then on medium heat .
Serve with tomato or chilli sauce .
