Healthy Chana-Chaat Tikki | Vegetarian | Indian Recipe

Welcome to my kitchen this week guys. Today I tried my hands on something healthy. As we still have rains and the awesome climate I thought of making some tikkis for snacks. I had some soaked and almost sprouted brown chana in the refrigerator and thought of making some hot steamy Chana Chaat but I was digging for some Chai too so I used all the ingredients of Chana Chaat (minus tomatoes) and made some tikkis out of it. I started with:


  1.  1 small bowl of Red Chana / Chickpeas soaked overnight.
  2. Half of medium sized Potato
  3. 1 small Onion
  4. 1tsp of Ginger-Garlic paste
  5. 1tbsp of crushed / pounded Coriander leaves
  6. 1/2 tbsp of Red Chilli Powder
  7. 1 Tsp of Turmeric Powder
  8. 1 tsp Garam masala
  9. 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  10.  1 tsp of Chaat masala
  11. Lime juice
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Oil for greasing the pan


Pressure cook the soaked chana for about 3 to 4 whistles and smashed the cooked potato with the help of a fork, keep the lumps. Potatoes helps to bind all the ingredients together.




Chop the onions finely and make paste of ginger and garlic in mortar and pestle, also crushed the coriander leaves in the same (you can use grinder or ready made paste but it won’t taste as delicious as mine. Just kidding, You can go with anything, I love the earthy taste it gives to the food.)



Transfer everything into the bigger bowl or a container. Add cooked chana and smash it with the smasher. Then add the prepared potato and all the ingredients and mix well.



Now make the tikkis in any shape you want. Make sure they are not more 1/2 inch thick.


Grease the non-stick pan with some oil, you won’t need to do it again. Cook your tikkis for 3-4 minutes on each side on simmer or till they get golden brown and crispy.  


 I loved this tikkis with my evening chai while watching the rains. You can enjoy them with green chutney or ketchup or any of your favorite dips.
