Here is a lip-smacking tikki made with a colourful mix of veggies, ranging from green peas and carrots to potatoes and white pumpkin, together with aromatic herbs like coriander and mint. After cooking, the Quick Vegetable Tikki is immediately rolled in a mixture of mint leaves and spice powders, to give it a tangy tongue-tickling coating that instantly excites your taste buds as soon as you bite into a tikki. After grating the doodhi, squeeze out the excess water before mixing it with the other ingredients.
