Rajgira flour is generally preferred as a fasting food since it is a non-cereal flour. The flour is prepared from the amaranth seeds. Mostly this flour is made as parathas. Being gluten free, it is suitable for gluten intolerant people. I tried making tikkis with this flour. Used some mashed potatoes for binding. Very easy to make if you have cooked potatoes in hand.
Yield - 9 nos
Time Taken - 15 minutes
- Rajgira flour - 1 cup
- Cooked and mashed potatoes - 1 cup ( I used 2 big potatoes)
- Ginger,green chilly paste - 1 tspn
- Seasoning ingredients - Salt, lemon juice, hing and chopped coriander
- Oil to shallow fry
Take all the ingredients except oil in a bowl. Mix well. No need to add water. The moisture from potatoes will help to bind the mixture. Pinch off lime sized dough and shape into tikkis. If you want some crunch, you can roll the tikkis in sesame seeds. This step is optional.
Heat a tawa. Place the tikkis. Drizzle oil on the tikkis. When the bottom gets cooked, flip and cook the other side. Enjoy hot with some ketchup or chutney.
