3. Combine well so that all the species are mixed nicely. Oats powder will soak the water from veggies which will reduce the moisture from the dough. add oats powder as required.

TIPS

  1. I have used only 3 main veggies but you can add grated cabbage, boiled green peas.
  2. Most important choose medium size and firm beetroot. It should not be hard as they might not taste good.
  3. Use mota rawa for coating.
  4. you can even use cornflour or breadcrumbs instead of oats powder for binding.
  5. don’t deep fry unless the tikkis are moist free. shallow fry is the best option.
