Chole ki Tikki – Garbanzo Beans Patty : An easy peasy appetizer that taste amazing and a healthy snack.
Anything which has “healthy” attached to it, always brings a smile cause even before we eat it, we think of having an extra helping.
Garbanzo Beans-Yogurt Patty
This Tikki is basically made using two ingredients “Garbanzo” & “Yogurt” (If Vegan, You can use Vegan Yogurt), both have very mild taste but along with the listed ingredients, this turns out to be a very creamy, soft and aromatic flavored tikki. PS: I so wanted to garnish them with fresh cilantro but they were gone even before reaching the table.
NOTE: *Please do ensure that the yogurt is without any water (hang it for a while in a cheesecloth). This is a key ingredient.
* Also, be little careful while cooking them as they are so tender that they might break.
