Note:

  • While grinding the moong dal ensure that it doesn’t have water in it.
  • Instead of moong dal you can add boiled potato too.
  • Finely chopped capsicum, cabbage , corn kernels can be added to the tikkis.
  • I used the rolled oats, you can use the quick cooking oats too.

    • Lavi , actually Varun was playing with this inch tape and i was clicking the pictures in the next room. when i came out to take spoon, suddenly oru bulb in my mind. so asked him for that inch tape and used it as a prop!!

  1. Ha, the inch tape near the tikki is a good reminder!! I will of course, replace moong dal with boiled potatoes, dip it in maida+water paste and deep fry the whole thing!! 😉

  2. I m regular visitor of your blog and tried few of recipes. Really a very useful blog. I tried this recipe with Masala oats so there was no need of garam masala for me. Also i m thinking to use this balls as stuffing for paratha. In that way we can incorporate veggie, dal, oats n atta a wholesome lunch box meal for the kids!
