Grated Cauliflower 3/4  cup

Grated paneer 1 cup

Chopped cilantro 1/4 cup

Salt to taste

Chili powder 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

Garam masala 1/4 tsp

Chopped green chili 1/2 tsp ( optional )

Lime juice 1 tbsp

Corn flour 4  tbsp

Oil as needed 

Breadcrumbs 1 cup


Add all the ingredients in  mixing bowl except oil.

Skip adding green chili if you serving small kids.

Mix everything well and make small cutlets / tikki out of the mixture.

In a small bowl add 1 tbsp corn flour and 1/4 cup water, mix and set aside.

Now dip each cutlet in the corn mixture and then drop them breadcrumbs to coat them all over.

If you want to deep fry, heat oil in a kadai and drop 2-3 tikkis at a time to fry until nice and crisp.

If you are on diet plan and want to avoid too much oil shallow fry them a non stick pan  with very oil.

If you want to skip oil totally, air fry them until they turn golden brown.

Serve  the tikkis with any chutney or ketchup.

Wow! That's a unique combo! I am.just wondering if we grate the cauliflower , won't it ooze out water?
Or do you squeeze out the water?
It's definitely an excellent cc recipe for diet .would love to try.

This looks lovely Sushma. Is there any substitute for the bread crumbs? Just looking for a low carb option and hence the question.

sushma said...

@ Vaishali - Yes it will definitely ooze out water. Squeeze out the water and then add rest of the ingredients.

sushma said...

@Anusha- You can skip bread crumbs, I have added them to give some extra binding.
