To give the Tikki a well fried texture one can use various items to coat the surface. Semolina,Roasted Vermicelli or Bread Crumbs are great to give a rough fried texture. Please note if you use semolina to coat the surface it will become nice and crispy but will not get the color golden brown. So be careful not burn the Tikki waiting for the golden color in case you have coated it with semolina.

Tips

To give the Tikki a well fried texture one can use various items to coat the surface. Semolina,Roasted Vermicelli or Bread Crumbs are great to give a rough fried texture.

Please note if you use semolina to coat the surface it will become nice and crispy but will not get the color golden brown. So be careful not burn the Tikki waiting for the golden color in case you have coated it with semolina.

Do not mash the potato too much, keep some texture. Mash it to about 85%. Make sure it does not become absolutely creamy like mashed potatoes.

I use sliced raw onions as part of the dressing. This depends on taste. Indians tend to like it. However, It can also lead to bad breath. So you can either skip it or use mouth wash post enjoying this dish.

I use only vegetables because I am a vegetarian. You can add small chunks (boiled keema) of chicken in case its part of your diet. Other non vegetarian items are not recommended.

I used a kind of Indian bread called Pao. You can also use sliced bread and enjoy this like a sandwich.

Now prepare the fresh salad items as it bakes. If you are frying you might want to do this before you start cooking.

Now heat the Pao on both sides on a pan. Apply some ghee or butter on both sides if you wish to enhance taste.
