Rice tikkis

This was a busy week and an even busier weekend, so nothing much was cooked. Lunches and dinners were eaten out, cornflakes made it to the breakfast table. That left me with a little leftover rice from friday. So I decided to make rice tikkis as saturday evening snacks. These were relished by hubby dearest and one could not tell these were made from leftovers.


Rice - 1.5 cups (cooked)
Sweet potato / Potato - 3/4th cup (peeled and grated)
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup (Chopped)
Curry leaves - 5-6
Chilli sauce - 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil for frying


Pulse the rice in the mixer for around 2-5 seconds until it is slightly mashed.
Mix the rice with the grated potato/ sweet potato
Add the coriander leaves, curry leaves, chilli sauce, red chilli powder, garam masala, salt and around 3 tsp of oil
Knead for a few minutes to ensure everything is well mixed
Make small balls from the dough and flatten them
Heat a tava and grease it. You can also deep fry these. Deep fried ones taste better (as usual :))
Place the tikkis on the tava and spoon oil over them. I used at least 1 tsp oil per tikki.
Fry until brown on both sides.
Enjoy with ketchup.
