Chickpeas & soya tikkis

Made these easy & healthy tikkis as an afternoon snack a few days back. The recipe is from Tarla Dalal's cooking magazine.

1 cup chickpeas - I used the canned ones, drained, rinsed & microwaved for 1 min.

1 cup soya granules - soaked in hot, salted water for 15 mins.

2 tbsp mint leaves

2 tsp ginger paste

2 tsp red chilli pwd or green chilli paste (less or more per taste)
1 tsp cumin pwd.

1 tsp coriander pwd.

salt to taste

Oil to shallow fry

1. Blend the chickpeas, soya granules and mint to a smooth dough without using water.

2. Add the red chilli pwd/green chilli paste, cumin pwd., coriander pwd., ginger paste & salt and mix well.

3. Form into small round flat tikkis. You can add a little bread crumbs to the dough if the tikkis do not hold their shape well.

4. Shallow fry the tikkis on a non-stick pan with a little oil until brown on both sides.

These made 12 tikkis for me.

These tikkis are off to the JFI - Chickpeas event at Sometime Foodie.

Iam always on the lookout to incorporate more soy into my diet so this recipe is neat! I make a mexican flavored cutlet which is something like this.

You could also send this in to Srivallis Legume Affair.

Thanks for a lovely entry to JFI Chickpea!
