Ticking for these Tikki's

Best Blogger Tips
Sticking to the theme of party snacks from my last post, this time I cater to the vegetarian crowd. Almost everytime, I put in so much effort planning on the meat and chicken part that the vegetarian folks tend to get missed out. They usually get the normal fare like paneer, potatoes and cauliflower for starters. Surprisingly there are so many options of giving the a new something, and it doesn't take too much time too.
Tikkis (Patties) are my favorite snack. The regular visit to the chaatwala are not complete without aloo tikki. This time however, I have totally avoided potatoes in this particular recipe and combined rice and yogurt. Summers are here, as I have been screaming every other post and what better than Yogurt.
