Last thursday myself and kids went to weekly vegetable market near my house to buy veggies of kids choice.Varu hardly eats any veggies but was happy to make a list of veggies she wants.The list goes like this 1.Carrot 2.Cauliflower 3.Potato 4.Pop corn 5.Samosa (pop corn and samosa are veggies for her)
After coming back i told them i will make vegetable tikkis for them for which they readily agreed.When they were busy with the pop corn i made the vegatable tikkis/cutlets.Usually they are shallow fried but i made a more healthy version of it by grilling them.Ever since i saw this post at Bikram’s blog,wanted to use my grill which i didn’t use after coming back to india.
The recipe is for smitha and this post is dedicated to my Dear Husband who loves everything which is not veg .He is forced to eat veg for a month now and he is just hating it .In kabab and tikkas his list goes like this Shammi kabab,Sheek kabab,Shikampuri kabab,Gauloti kabab,Kheem cutlets,Chicken tikka,Fish cutlets so on and so forth.So dear husband it is good to be a vegetarian atleast for a month.Enjoy what you eat……..
Here goes the recipe
What are required
Cauliflower 4-5 florets
Potatoes 4 medium-sized
Green peas 1/2 cup
French beans 5-6
Any other veggies of your choice
Green chutney 2 tbsp
Oats 1/2 cup
Salt as per taste
Oil 3 tbsp
For green chutney
Mint leaves 2 cups
Coriander leaves 1 cup
Amchur powder 2 tbsp
Green chillies 3-4
Cumin seeds roasted 1 tbsp
Grind all the above ingredients for green chutney.Green chutney can be stored for long in fridge
Now how to do the tikkis/cutlets
Boil all the veggies and drain water.
Dry roast oats and cool it.
Mix all the veggies,oats,green chutney and salt.
Heat the grill and brush it with oil.Make small patties and place them on the grill.
My grill is powered by electricity so the tikkis were done quite quickly.So the grilling time depends on the type of grill used.Once they are browned on both sides,sprinkle chat masala and serve hot.
This can be served with green chutney mixed with curd.
