  • Mix and knead well into a dough.
  • Now, add the bread crumbs and knead well.
  • Divide the dough into balls.
  • Press each ball with hand so that it would make into a round patty.
  • Heat a pan and apply little oil, shallow fry both slides till golden brown.
For Ragada:

  • Now, add the boiled peas, enough water, curd and mix well.
  • Cover and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
 For Serving Tikki with Ragada:
  • Prepare tamarind chutney and mint chutney. I have posted chutnies recipes also in bhel puri recipe under Chaats Section.
  • Take the serving plate, put two cutlets in the plate.
  • Pour the ragada on the tikki.
  • Sprinkle chopped onions and coriander leaves.
  • Sprinkle a pinch of chat masala powder and serve hot.

Chickpeas are rich in proteins, this is low in saturated fat and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein and Copper. And it's favorite street food of many from kids to dadi's from south to North. Nothing beats home made right, and can be enjoyed without fear as it is not safe to take outside food specially in this season. So, we can keep our kids happy by making this at home.

I am sending this recipe to to Cook It Healthy event announced by Sobha Shyam of Good Food.
Please do visit her blog, it's full of really very healthy and tasty recipes.
