Masoor Dal Tikki With Mint And Coriander

Masoor Dal Tikki With Mint And Coriander

I had made fresh sandwiches the other day for our picnic. I  removed the border of the bread but did not waste them since they can be used as breadcrumbs for making tikkis, pattice, puddings, chocolate balls.

This time I thought of using it to make some kind of tikkis. I wanted to make something for the starter. My in-laws are at my place. They try and enjoy different types of dishes I prepare, so thought of making a tikki but without using potato in it. I had paneer, bread crumbs, mint and coriander with me. I thought of using them with masoor dal. You can read the benefits of masoor dal in my recipe whole masoor dal.

Many people do not like eating the masoor dal in curry form. They can now enjoy this masoor dal tikkis.

This tikki is very healthy. It does not have potato. It has paneer and hence has goodness of calcium. Masoor is good in proteins, hence it is diabetic friendly, good for growing kids and a good source of calcium and proteins for pregnant ladies.

You can deep fry the tikkis. I have shallow fried them. They were crisp outside and soft and smooth inside.

Do try them and serve your guests – And then ask them to guess the ingredients!!
