Hariyali Tikki

I came across this recipe from the Indian magazine Woman’s era. I happened to get this magazine while I was returning to the US. After two years I am reading this magazine and I noticed it has lot of contribution towards cooking. There were around 10 pages concentrating on Indian snack items. I am going to try one by one and share it with you all. So here is the first recipe I am sharing with you all “Hariyali Tikki”.


  • 1 cup boiled mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds broken
  • 1 tsp paste of ginger and green chilies
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • ½ tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tsp besan
  • Oil for frying and salt to taste


  • Mix all the ingredients nicely without water. Take a small portion in your hand and make into round shapes and press it. Make all the tikkis in round shapes and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the tikkis till it becomes crispy.
  • Serve hot with chutney or tomato sauce
