Rice Tikkis | A twist to the Indian Street Food

>>  Tuesday, January 25, 2011

These Rice Tikkies were a twist to the regular tikkis that we make. We wanted to make it more healthy by not adding maida to the dough. The crunchy onions added taste and this was a quick snack for the kids. 

The special thing about these were the fact that they can be kept on the tawa and be forgotten. Well not quite literally though. Unlike the starchy potato Tikkis, these don't get overcooked or need immediate attention.

Ingredients Needed:

Cooked Rice - 3/4 cup
Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Fried Gram flour /Pottukadali podi- 2 tbsp
Onions - 1 medium
Coriander leaves - handful
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Ajwain seeds - 1/4 tsp
Bread Crumbs as required.
Oil for shallow frying
Salt to taste
Water litte to knead to a dough

Method to prepare:

Chop the onions and coriander fine. In a bowl take the flours together, add the chili powder, onions, ajwain seeds to the flour.

Slowly add the water little to knead to a stiff dough. Divide into balls. Flatten into thin discs, roll them on bread crumbs.

Heat a tawa, grease with oil. Place the tikkis and cook on both sides by sprinkling oil and cook on slow flame.

These are off to my Kid's Delight Event themed this month on Street Food.

yumm, looks so crunchy

The tikkis look great. I assume you have to soak the rice and gram and then grind to make the flour?

This is an interesting variation for sure!!

Yes this didn't require potatoes..the wheat flour made sure the tikkis stayed put..

mina, these were made with store bought flour, but with home made flour it will come out very well.

Love love the tikkis :) i have a question though... rice is rice flour right? or cooked rice?

divya January 26, 2011 at 6:28 AM  

looks very tempting dear....

Srivalli January 26, 2011 at 10:22 AM  

These can be made both with cooked rice and rice flour. I have made with both, esp with leftover rice. It comes out well to. But the ones in the pictures were made with rice flour.

Gayathri Kumar January 26, 2011 at 1:46 PM  

Looks so yummy. Kids will surely love it..

Red Scintilla October 29, 2012 at 2:45 AM  

u mean we can use boiled rice directly in the mixture ? and how do we add the gram :o pardon me , im new in cooking !! :$ and lack common sense abt it :P

Srivalli Jetti October 29, 2012 at 6:58 PM  

Red Scintilla, Have updated the post, I had gone with an assumption. Gram flour is the flour from Fried channa dal.
