Yellow Peas Tikkis ~ Easy Diabetic Snack

>>  Wednesday, January 27, 2016

For the second day of Healthy Diet / Diabetic Diet, I have a simple tikki that turned out to be delicious and quite handy to tuck inbetween the bread to make a hearty meal by itself.

I had the yellow peas soaked to make some sundal, and it turned out that we just couldn't cook it as planned. We finally cooked it and still left with major part of it behind, when we thought we could make tikkis out of it. Peddu especially loves these tikkis between his bread slices and loves to think he has a perfect burger in hand. So as much as we can plan, we do make these healthy tikkis with all dried lentils that we can plan.

Yellow Peas Tikkis

Ingredients Needed:

Yellow peas - 1 cup
Potato - 2 tbsp
Green chilies - 2 medium
Ginger, grated - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp 
Red chili powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp

Oats, crushed for coating

How to make the Yellow Peas Tikkis

Wash, soak the yellow peas overnight. Pressure cook with enough water till done. Allow to cool and grind to a paste.

Heat a non stick pan with oil, add cumin seeds, finely chopped green chilies, and grated ginger. Saute well.

Now add mashed potatoes, and all the spice powders. Mix well and then add the ground peas paste. Adjust for seasoning.

Allow to cool and divide into small balls and flatten. Roll the tikkis on oats powder.

Heat a non stick pan and drizzle with oil. Pan cook the tikkis till the top browns well.

Makes a delicious cake in between the bread.

Very nice. Love the idea of using oats for rolling instead of bread crumbs.
