Chhole tikki is a delightful treat for both health and taste buds
There's no better way to enjoy the rains than gorging on some nosh and nibbles with a piping hot cup of tea. If we think of tea-time snacks, ‘something fried' is what we always want. Pakoda, samosa and aloo tikki – we keep alternating between these snacks and frankly, no matter how delicious they are, it can be boring to eat the same things again and again; only our tea should be constant. So, to bring in a fresh breath of air into our precious tea time, we discovered a unique snack – chhole tikki! Yes, a patty made with chickpeas makes for an interesting treat. If you ignore the dripping oil from thetikki, you'll be able to see some nutritional properties it contains.
Chhole, or chickpeas, are incredibly rich in proteins and fibre that fill you up with energy and keep your digestive system running smoothly. Chhole also possesses a certain nutty taste that will make your snacking experience more enjoyable. Have a chhole tikki with mint chutney or stuff it in to make a sandwich or burger.
