Tips and Recipe Notes

I know I have said these are healthy. So let me tell how what makes them healthy and tips to make best matar patties for chaat.

  • In this recipe I replaced bread crumb/maida/cornflour with fresh brown bread which crushed in grinder.
  • Also I added poha/flattened rice which is healthier option and iron rich too
  • I replaced potatoes with crushed matar or green peas.
  • And major instead of deep frying I fried them in very minimal amount of oil.

Things to Take care for Best Results

  • Peas or matar should retain some texture after grinding, we do not want a pasty mixture.
  • You can adjust the quantity of bread crumbs to adjust the consistency of mixture. It should resemble soft dough and should not be watery.
  • Instead of mushrooms you can add grated carrots too.
  • While frying turn them gently and cook on medium to slow heat.

Can You Make Matar Tikki Ahead ?

For best results I suggest cook them fresh. But You can always pre prep till shaping them You can store them in fridge for 1 day.

When you are ready to eat or serve, take them out, shallow fry and these are ready to be served.
