BM # 47 Week 4 Day 1
When we talk of North Indian starters, the first starter I think of is tikki. I am fond of these and are always on my party menu. The variety of these is always different. For Day 1 I have Soya Paalak Tikkis.These tikkis are made with soya keema, which is the granulated form of soya. I am not a soya fan, but rest of the family is, as a result I always add other ingredients to kill the typical soya taste. For these tikkis I used boiled potatoes and spinach.They turned out awesome and kind of melted in the mouth.
