SOYA PANEER PUDINA TIKKIS

SOYA PANEER PUDINA TIKKIS

 Of late, I have started using Soya Paneer as it has many health benefits. Elsewhere in this blog, you will find the recipe for another filling snack using Soya Paneer, namely Soya Paneer and Capsicum Grilled Sandwich.

This recipe for a delicious snack cum starter is adapted from Paneer Phudina Tikkis from Masterchef Tarlaji Dalal. While the original recipe called for the use of Paneer (Cottage Cheese), I have instead used the more healthy Soya Paneer (Tofu).

These Soya Paneer Pudina Tikkis laced with the flavour of mint can be made in about 15 minutes. You can expect to get 8-10 tikkis from the ingredients given below, depending on the size of the balls of dough that you use.



Ingredients:
  • Soya Paneer, (Tofu), 200 gms
  • Pudina ( Mint Leaves), finely chopped, 1/4 cup
  • Green Chillies, finely chopped, 3-4, or as per taste
  • Cornflour, 1 tbsp.
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, for greasing and cooking
  • Chaat Masala, 1 tsp, for garnish

Method:

Grate the soya paneer and keep aside
Finely chop the mint leaves and the green chillies
In a bowl, mix together the grated soya paneer, finely chopped mint leaves and green chillies, cornflour, and salt, to form a soft dough
Divide this dough into 8 equal portions shaping them into flat round tikkis
Heat a non-stick tawa and lightly grease it with oil
Place the tikkis on it, drizzle a little oil around them and cook until they turn golden brown
Flip the tikkis over and similarly cook the other side too
Remove to a serving tray and sprinkle chaat masala on each of the tikkis
Serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup or both
