• Potato Tikki Sandwich

    August 26th, 2010MammuSandwiches

    When ever I have any type of bread left at home, I make these sandwiches and wraps up my dinner quickly. With left over tikki mixture, I make more tikkis next day and that serves my evening snack too.

    Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

    Serves: Makes 6-8 tikkis


    For Tikki:

    1. Potato – 1 medium sized
    2. Onions – 3 tablespoons chopped
    3. Green peas – 1/2 Cup, soaked in water for 1-2 hours
    4. Red chili powder – 1/2 teaspoon
    5. Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
    6. Salt – 1 teaspoon
    7. Oil – 2-3 tablespoons

    For sandwich:

    1. Lettuce
    2. Tomato Round slices
    3. Avocado – 1, Sliced – optional
    4. Onion Slices
    5. Ketch up

    Cooking Procedure

    Preparing Tikki:

    1. Cook together potatoes and green peas in pressure cooker. Let it cool and peel the potato. In a bowl, smash together potato and green peas with hand or a spatula. Don’t add any water or grind it, else it will become soggy.

    2. Add the remaining ingredients for preparing tikki, mix well. Heat a non stick pan/tawa/griddle on medium heat and drizzle some oil on it. Scoop tikki mixture, place on plastic sheet and press to desired shape (round or square depending on your bread).

    3. Gently flip them on to your palm and place on pan. Shallow fry till golden brown, flip over, drizzle some more oil and fry on the other side also. Place as many tikkis you can fit on the pan, leaving some space to flip them over, in this way you can prepare tikkis faster.

    Arranging Sandwich:

    1. Gently warm the buns on a pan, not more than 30 seconds. Arrange lettuce, tikkis, tomato, onions, avocado on base side of bun and squeeze over some ketchup. Lightly spread mayonnaise on the top half of bun and keep it on top the arrangement.

    More Ideas: For sandwich you can add other vegetables like cumber, zucchini etc. You can also add a slice of cheese if you like to. Onion, tomato slices can be lightly grilled on the pan along with tikkis, if you don’t like eating them raw.

    You can use any type of bread, I prefer to use hamburger buns or garlic bread.
