The sweet succulence of sweet potatoes combined with the tongue-tickling excitement of chaat masala, lemon juice and other ingredients gives this tikki a very different flavour, compared to other tikkis you have tasted before. Sweet potato, with its fibrous yet soft texture, also gives the tikki a unique mouth-feel. Deep-fried, with a crisp yet soft texture, the Sweet Potato Tikki is a wonderful tea-time accompaniment that will become a favourite with everybody.
