Couscous & Peas Tikki

I was paired with Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds for this month's of bloghop wednesdays, a monthly event started by Radhika. I always impressed the way Kalyani cooks and am an ardent fan of her space.I have already bookmarked so many dishes at Kalyani's space and seriously i was soo happy when i was paired with her, my first choice was to make her steamed dal vada, but somehow i went for my recent bookmarked recipe 'couscous peas tikki' from her place.

These tikkis are simply awesome, gets ready very much quickly. An excellent snack to enjoy simply with ketchup,spicy chutney or with spiced curd.As Kalyani told these tikkis suits prefect even for potlucks or a simple birthday parties.

1cup Cooked couscous
1/2cup Peas (cooked)
2nos Potatoes (cooked)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Chaat masala
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
Salt
1/2tsp Fennel seed powder
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/2cup Maida
1/2cup Bread crumbs
Oil for shallow frying

Take the cooked couscous,cooked peas and cooked potatoes in a large bowl, add the garam masala powder, chaat masala,chopped green chillies and fennel seed powder with enough salt.

Using the fingers, smash well everything and make a thick paste.

Make a medium sized balls from this mixture,flatten them as tikkis and keep aside.

Mix the maida with enough water to make a white sauce,gently dip the tikkis one by one to the white sauce and roll it over the bread crumbs until the tikkis gets well coated.

Arrange in fridge for half an hour before shallow frying.

Heat enough oil for shallow frying, fry the already prepared tikkis on both side until the crust turns golden brown.

Serve warm with ketchup.
