Happy Fasting to Friends n Family on the occasion of “Navratri” – Jai Mata Di !!!
Here’s a vrat recipe which is my all time fav or I can say the reason why I thought I started keeping these fasts…
These tikki/vada can me made with tons n tons of variations (add or minus ingredients) but whatever be the combo, it taste yummmm n looks pretty too 🙂
You can even eat these on any regular day and can substitute “Rock Salt” with Regular Salt & “Singhada (Chestnut Flour)” with Plain Flour or absolutely no flour….Hope you enjoy them!
PS: Mostly they are deep fried but I’m sauteing mine with enough oil to please eyes n health.
Serves: 4 Serving Suggestion:Serve as snack or in between energy filler. Great for Vrat/Fastings.

Once the oil is hot (about 2-3mins), place 4 – 5 tikki’s on the pan and cook for 3min or till evenly brown on the bottom.
