Keema Tikki/Minced Meat Patties

I got the idea of tikkis from a friend Sholi, who's all the way from Dilli!!! She had it stuffed with dry fruits which I replaced with keema(minced meat) to suit my ongoing domestic Meat-a-holism.

You will need...

Potatoes - 5-6medium
Coriander leaves - few chopped
Cumin powder - a pinch
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Bread - 1-2 slice powdered
Salt - as needed

Boil potatoes. Peel, mash, add all the ingredients and mix well. Keep aside.

Potato mixture should be pliable as well as firm.  Add bread powder accordingly.

For the filling...
Minced meat - 250 gm
Mint leaves - few chopped
Onions - 1 big chopped
Green chillies - 3-4 chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few chopped
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste


Cook minced meat with coriander pdr, turmeric pdr, chilli pdr, garam masala pdr and salt stirring well until all the water disappears. Keep aside. Heat oil in the pan and saute onions, green chillies, ginger paste and curry leaves until translucent, add cooked mince and stir fry until goden brown. Garnish with mint leaves. Take a lemon sized ball of potatoes with greased hands, mould as shown in figure and stuff with minced meat(approx 1 tbsp). Close the mash around the meat making a smooth ball. Flatten gently between both hands to form a small round disk. On a greased, hot tava/griddle roast both sides of the tikkis until golden brown.  Brush oil on the tikkis if needed.  Serve hot with tomatto ketchup or any chutney of your choice.
