These cheese-packed Corn and Potato Tikkis are a delight to bite into! The crispy outer surface of the tikkis give way to a soft inside that merges the mellow sweetness of corn, the mushy texture of potatoes and the gooeyness of cheese with tangy lemon juice and peppy garam masala. Indeed, every bite of these tikkis is an experience to savour.


Boiled sweet corn kernels 3/4 Cup (12 tbs) (coarsely crushed)
Mashed potatoes 5 1/2 Cup (88 tbs)
Finely chopped coriander 2 Tablespoon
Lemon juice 2 Teaspoon
Finely chopped green chillies 2 Teaspoon
Garam masala 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Cheese cubes 16 Small
Oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (for greasing and cooking)



In a deep bowL, combine the corn, potatoes, coriander, lemon juice, green chillies, garam masala and saltand mix well. 

Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a small ball.

Press a little in the centre of each ball to make a depression, place 2 cheese cubes in each depression and again shape them into a round ball and then flatten it lightly between your palms to make a 50 mm. (2”) diameter tikki.

In a non-stick tava (griddle), heat the oil. Place the tikkis on it and cook on a medium flame using oil till they are golden brown in color from both the sides. 


Serve immediately with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
