Mix Veggie Aloo Tikki Chaat

Aloo tiki chaat is pretty famous as street food in North India. As the winters approach the stall for tikki chaat increases on the street. Regular Aloo Tikki, I have already discussed in Veg Burger recipe. I have made little variations here by using few seasonal veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, beans and peas. This makes the tikki nutritious and more tasty.

This tongue tickling chaat includes chana daal stuffed mix veggie spicy tikki with tangy tamarind and coriander mint chutney. I have shallow fried the tikkis, if desired you can deep fry for more crispness.

Paneer Bhurjii

Paneer, as I always say is important in our diet. We should try that we can eat paneer atleast once a week. When I have enough time in hand, paneer butter masala, or matar paneer or paneer tortilla wraps is my choice. However when time is less and something delicious and quick is to be made then Paneer Bhurjii, Chilli Paneer is the choice.

This paneer bhurjii is nutritious as it contains veggies like capsicum and carrot. The amount of veggies can be altered as per the taste required. You can also add some peas to enrich the flavor. I have used kitchen king masala, which can be replaced by pav bhaji masala as well.

Here I come with very simple yet delicious recipe of paneer….
