Khoya Stuffed Matar Ki Tikki

Khoya Stuffed Matar Ki Tikki

A great contrast of flavors. Sharper outside and sweet inside. Balance the flavors with a tangy pea tikki stuffed with a sweet khoya and date filling.

Ingredients :

For the tikki:

  •     1 1/2 Tbsp desi ghee
  •     1 1/2 tsp zeera
  •     1 pinch heeng mixed with water
  •     3 tsp green chillies, chopped
  •     2 Tbsp ginger, chopped
  •     1 bowl de-shelled peas
  •     1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  •     1 tsp coriander powder
  •     Salt, to taste
  •     2-3 Tbsp besan

For the filling:

  •     60-70 gms khoya
  •     2 tsp green chillies, chopped
  •     3 tsp pista (heaped), chopped
  •     1 tsp coriander leaves, chopped
  •     2-3 dates, chopped
  •     Oil to pan grill / shallow fry the tikkis


In a pan add ghee, zeera, heeng water, green chillies and ginger. Saute for 30 seconds.

Add the peas, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt. Saute till the peas start to brown a little on the outside.

Once cooked, blend the coarsely in a mixer. Do not make a fine paste. Mix besan to it and make a stiff mixture.

Take some of the pea mixture in your hand and stuff it with the khoya filling.

Shallow fry these tikkis in a pan and serve with tangy chutneys.
