You can also sprinkle chaat masala on these and eat as a tea time snack. They have a unique taste. Whenever we make Raw Banana Tikki Curry, half of the Tikkis are eaten while making the curry.

If tcahere are any Tikkis leftover from tea time then we can prepare Tari to make its curry.

There are different types of Tari: cashew nut Tari, Khas-Kha Tari, cream tomato Tari, onion- garlic Tari etc. We have prepared all of these using different vegetables., we will make cream tomato Tari which consumes less time.है .

Make a paste of tomatoes, green chilli and ginger. Pour oil in a pan and heat, in the hot oil put Heeng and Jeera. After Jeera is fried put Turmeric powder and coriander powder, stir 2-3 times with a spoon. Put the tomato paste and fry the spices till oil floats over them. Now put in the cream and fry spices for 2 minutes. According to how thick or thin you want the Tari add water, followed by salt and red chilli powder then mix well. Once water comes to boil add the pieces of banana and boil for 2 minutes. Turn off the gas. Put Garam masala to the curry and mix.
