Potato-Quinoa Tikki

I got the idea of making this tikki after going through a post in  I know that making a tikki needs patience and I am not that good in making this one so far.  The post I saw was a Quinoa & beef patty.  I just took the idea of using quinoa in making tikki and used it here as per my whims and fancies. Here goes the recipe for making Quinoa-Potato Tikki.


  1. Cooked Quinoa - 1/2 cup
  2. Medium sized potato - 1 (boil and mash it)
  3. Onion - 1/4 cup finely chopped
  4. Green peas - 1/4 cup ( I used frozen peas, cook it in microwave accordingly)
  5. Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup finely chopped 
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Ajwain/omam - 1/2 tsp
  8. Chilli powder - 1 tsp (acc to taste
  9. Garam Masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  10. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)
  11. Maida/Corn flour - for coating.
  12. Oil - 4 tbsp
    Quinoa-Potato Tikki
  • Take a wide bottomed vessel, add all the above ingredients one by one.  Mix it nicely with hand. 
  • Make lemon sized balls out of it and keep it aside for 10 minutes.  I made little bit bigger balls. With the above mentioned ingredients, I could make 7 tikkis.
  • Heat a tawa with couple of tablespoons of oil.  Now flatten the balls one by one in to one inch thick patties.  
  • sprinkle maida/corn flour/roasted sooji on top of it and cook it on medium flame so that both sides cook evenly.
  • Add oil accordingly so that we get the crispy consistency. Leave it for few minutes so that it sets.
  • Serve it with tomato ketchup.
