Mattar aur Makai Tikki

BM # 47  Week 4  Day 2

For day two under North Indian starters I have yet another tikki.This is a tikki which is very different from what I have posted before. How different?...well a different hand makes all the difference to the spices and ingredients. The tikki has been made by my DIL. The tikkis that I make normally do not have mango powder, this one has and unbelievably it made a huge difference to the flavor of the tikki. Slightly tangy the tikki with corn and peas can be served with ketchup .

Mattar aur Makai Tikki 
6 boiled potatoes 
1/4 cup boiled green peas 
1/4 cup corn kernels, boiled 
2 slices bread 
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped 
Coriander leaves 
1/2 tsp dry mango powder 
1/2 tsp red chilly powder 
1/4 tsp garam masala 
Salt to taste 
Mash the potatoes. 
Add boiled and slightly crushed peas and corn. 
Soak bread slices and squeeze the water, add to the mix. 
Add all spices and mix well. 
Divide into six balls and flatten each one to form a Pattice. 
Roll them into semolina and shallow fry. 
Here you have the choice either to shallow fry or to deep fry.
