- 2-3 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
- 3 tbsp green peas boiled and drained (optional)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp chili flakes
- 1/4 tsp black sea salt
- 1/2 tsp lemon drops

- Now to the grated dough add 1 chopped green chili, chopped coriander leaves, boiled and drained green peas, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp chili flakes, 1/4 tsp black sea salt and 1/2 tsp lemon drops. Mix everything together.
- Green peas should also be mashed well. Now to this dough add 3-4 tbsp Rice flour and again give it a good mix. You can also use corn flour or bread crumbs for the binding.
- Rice flour adds more crispness and the dough is very light.
- Dough is ready to make. Now grease your hand with the oil and take some dough to make a round tikki.
- Take the dough according to the big or small size you want.
- Roll it into a round ball and then flatten it to give a shape of tikki.
- Make all the dough like this and keep it aside.
- Now we will deep fry it. You can shallow fry it too.
- Take a deep pan and add oil in it to deep fry tikki.
- Keep the flame on medium low, add 2-3 tikki at a time and fry it until it turns golden brown from one side.
- When the bottom side is cooked brown then flip the side to cook it from the other side.
- When it is done, take out the tikki in a plate and make rest of the tikki the same way.
- All the tikki are ready. Serve hot with coriander chutney or Imli chutney.
