NUTRITIOUS KIDNEY BEAN, CHEESE CUTLET/ POSHTIK RAJMA PANEER TIKKI
Tikki/Cutlet a very famous chat food. I never made tikki at home but couple of months back when my kids tasted McD's Burger they kept on asking for it. Then i started making simple aloo tikki at home for burger. You can see my Simple Aloo tikki and Burger in my blog. But i always craved for more healthier version, i tried once and failed(i did a very big and foolish mistake). I never tried again. Then I saw so many bean/cheese/veg tikki/cutlet recipes (and realized my mistake i did last time). I don't know why i always felt that kidney bean and Garbanzo Bean tikki/cutlet would be very tasty as well as healthy.
This time i gathered courage and determined to try my hand on it. Few days back i soaked kidney Bean/ Rajma for gravy then i increased the quantity to make some cutlets. I can't tell you how tasty it was. I was so happy to see my kids devouring it. One thing i regret is my hubby was not at home when i made this. I am fully sure that he will give a thumps up to this scrumptious tikki. Will make next time for you dear. Now i have gathered enough courage to try White Chana/Garbanzo Bean Tikki. Enjoy it any time, I think between Monsson Showers is best time. I urge all of you to try this and see everyone enjoying.

- You can add any of your favorite veggie in this, though its not required. Its perfect. It was so yummy with these three main ingredients.
- You can add any of your favorite masala/spice in it.
- Tikki is fit for burgers,chats or any other way you want to use it. Its very delicious on its own.
- My kids ate 3-4 on the spot and for left ones they asked to roll it in parantha, it was also awesome that way.
