Step 1 

Wash and soak rajma overnight. The next day boil it and mash it with a masher slightly coarsely.

Step 2

Boil your potato. Chop the onions, green chilly, mint and coriander leaves finely.

Step 3 

Now in a bowl add the rajma, boiled potatoes, green chilies, onions, gram flour along with all other masalas namely asafoetida, salt, red chilly powder,garam masala, mint and coriander leaves and amchoor powder in the abovementioned quantities and mix it well. You can use any flour other than gram flour like wheat flour, refined flour,bajra flour, maize flour, millet flour, rice flour etc but I have used gram flour because it gives a crispy finish and more taste to the tikkis.

Step 4

Now heat a non-stick pan and grease it with oil. Now make patties out of the batter and shallow fry them in batches until golden brown.

Our Rajma And Potato Tikkis are ready. Sprinkle some chaat masala over them and enjoy it with any of your choicest dips like yogurt dip, garbanzo dip, sweet chilly sauce and sweet lemon sauce.IMG_2781.JPG
