Healthy vegetable tikia

I am sure tikia reminds any Indian of a nice spicy evening snack enjoyed at roadside chat stalls.
But health and the roadside chat stalls don't mostly go together.

However, we here suggest a healthier version of this snack. Its based on a simple funda - toss loads of veggies together and use very little oil to make your own healthy version of the tasty junk food.The simple recipe will just take half an hour to give you a delicious dish.


3 large potatoes
1 carrot
1/2 a cup chopped Beans
1/4th cup chopped Cabbage
Chaat masala
Red chilli powder
green chillies ( depends on taste)
Black salt
Salt to taste
2tbsp oil


1. Boil all the vegetables together and mash them well
2.Add chaat masala,green chilies, black salt powder, red chilli powder and salt to the mashed vegetables and mix well
3. Roll the mashed mixture into small round shapes
4. Grease a non stick pan with a little oil
5. Place the tikkias on the pan and fry till both the sides turn brown in  colour

Your delicious healthy tikkias are ready. Serve them hot with green chutney.
You can also serve them stuffed in breads.
