Gobi Tikki | Cauliflower Pattie

Posted by

I was not able to decide what should I prepare for the snack as I was really craving for something yummy and spicy and oily snack. 😛 And of course, there was nothing I could think of so quickly. 😛 So I called up my mom, woke her up at 5AM (this time zone is so irritating sometimes 😛 ) and asked her to give her recipe of gobi tikki. 😀 So FINALLY after so many days, I decided to try something different with cauliflower.
Whenever cauliflower is in season, my mom used to make this gobi tikki for snacks when we get bored of eating aloo-gobi, aloo-capsicum, gobi paratha etc. 😀 My mom knows many variations of tikki (they are less oily than deep fried pakodas 😀 ). Yes, she is too conscious about deep fried food. 😀 Among all the tikkis this one is her favorite recipe for evening snack as these obviously requires less oil and tastes yummy too. I used to eat this tikki rolled in a chapati with some sauce. Yum-yum in my tum-tum. 😀 Though I like all types of pakoda/ tikki and I can eat them anytime you offer me but this gobi tikki is my favorite one. 🙂

Step 1- Boil water in a pan and add 1tsp salt and cauliflower florets. Let it simmer for 5-6mins then drain. Grate the cauliflower florets in a bowl

Step 2- Add all the ingredients except oil and mix everything well. Do not add water as the mixture will bind on its own moisture

Step 3- Heat 2-3tbsp oil in a pan and meanwhile make small tikki by rolling a handful of the mixture into a ball and flattening it with your palm. Pan fry them on medium flame from both the sides until golden brown and then remove on a kitchen towel to drain the excess oil

Serve hot with ketchup or chutney and of course, tea. 🙂 Enjoy. 🙂
