Paneer Palak Tikki | Indian Cottage Cheese Spinach Patty - Healthy Snacks for Kids

>>  Wednesday, April 21, 2010

In my quest to find low fat, healthy snacks for kids this is yet another Tikki that really gets everybody excited. Patties or Tikkis are such a wonderful snack that you can whip within minutes without much hassle. And it need not be that you need to plan for these easy to make, healthy alternatives for those chips or other junk food that's kids love so much.

This Paneer Spinach Tikkis were something that came about at home. Athamma was planning to make some Tikkis with paneer for a long time. When she couldn't get this done on time, it was chosen for a different time and finally never got around being done. We always have home made paneer at home stocked. So making this was also not so difficult to plan. Finally when we saw that we had spinach excess, it naturally had to get into other healthy ways for the kids to eat.

I was happy that this was done finally and not once but quite sometimes. I had to remember to take pictures as every time these were made, it vanishes before I even think about taking a picture.

Paneer Spinach Tikkis

Check here to know how I make Paneer at home

Paneer crumbled - 1 cup
Spinach - 1 bunch app
Onions - 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Green Chilies / Red chili powder 1 tsp (as per taste)
Salt to taste
Wheat flour - 2 tbsp
Maida - 1 tsp
Bread Crumbs - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves - handful
Ajwain/ Omam - 1/4 tsp

Method to prepare:

Crumble the paneer well. Wash and finely chop the spinach. In a bowl, take all the ingredients along with the flours. Mix well to get a smooth dough.

Ensure the tikki mix is not sticky, else add some more wheat flour.

Heat a pan with little oil. Divide the mix into small balls. Flatten each into 6' disc. Finally dust them well on bread crumbs.

Place on the hot pan, sprinkle few drops of oil. Cook on low flame for the tikkis to get cooked well.

Flip to the other side when it is done.

I made the potato peas Tikkis the same way.

Serve with ketchup
