Vegetarian Oats Aloo Ki Tikki

I have some rolled oats in my pantry. And I always try to include oats in our meals. I have made cereals with rolled oats. You can Click here to go to the recipe for home made oats cereal.
And also Granola oats laddoos -Click here for the recipe.

This is my way of making aloo ki tikkis with oats. They are absolutely a delight with a cup of tea. And it’s a lovely afternoon snack. Add some spiced yogurt over it for the chaat effect.
You can even pack it in your little ones Tiffin box. Don’t forget to give some tomato ketchup also. You can prepare the patties in night and keep it refrigerated and in the morning fry them over a non-stick pan or tava, and it’s ready to be packed in your little one and your lunch-box as well.

Vegetarian oats aloo ki tikki
4-5 boiled and mashed potato
3-4 –whole meal bread slices
About ¾ cup of rolled oats
2-4 tbs of besan
5-6 tsp of coriander powder
3-4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
2-3 garlic chopped
3-4 green chilly chopped finely
Pinch of baking soda
¼ cup of toasted walnuts crushed
¼ cup of sultanas
Salt as per taste
Cooking oil for frying tikkis

Boil and mash potatoes.
Now in a big mixing bowl, mix rolled oats, bread slices, besan and all the seasonings-coriander powder, red pepper flakes, garlic, green chilly, baking soda and salt. Add in boiled and mashed potato.

Divide the dough to small rounds -makes about 12-14 rounds.

Shape them into small discs and then stuff in between some walnuts and sultanas. Close the discs working with your fingers towards the inside of the disc.Now press to shape up like round patties. Make other patties as well. This much of the mixture will make approx-12-14 medium size patties.
Now heat up a tava/heavy iron skillet, and add in about 1-2 tbs of cooking oil. Fry the patties each side for about 4-5 mints at medium –low flame. Fry the patties in batches of four.
They turn out very crisp if you fry them slowly and at med-low flame. Transfer over tissue paper to soak uo extra oil.

Enjoy with tomato ketchup and a cup of tea. Splendid evening snacks.
You can even pack it in your little ones and your Tiffin box as well.

Happy Cooking Friends
