Beetroots, grated - 3 medium size, Pure ghee - 2 tablespoons + to shallow fry, salt to taste, lemon juice – 1tbsp, Garlic, ginger & chili paste - 2tsp, Cashew nut powder - ¼ cup, Roasted chana dal powder – ¼ cup, Caraway seeds (shahi jeera) – ½ tsp, garam masala powder – ¼ tsp, chaat masala – ½ tsp, black pepper powder - ¼ tsp and Raisins 2tbsp. Method:
1. Heat two tablespoons of ghee in a pan. Add grated beetroot, salt and sauté.
2. Add lemon juice and mix. Sauté till all the moisture dries up and the beetroot gets completely cooked and mashed. 3. Add ginger, garlic & chili paste and mix well. Continue to sauté.
4. Transfer the mixture into a bowl. Add cashew nut powder, roasted chana dal powder, shahi jeera, garam masala powder, chaat masala, raisins, black pepper powder and mix well. 5. Divide the mixture into eight equal portions. Grease your palms, take small portions of the mixture and shape them into tikkis. 6. Heat a pan and add sufficient ghee. Place the tikkis on the hot pan and shallow fry. When the underside is done, flip over and cook till the other side is done. Do not flip the tikkis too often as they are very delicate and may break. 7. Serve hot. :-)
