i have posted quite a few tikki recipes in my blog, but this recipe of aloo channa dal tikki is very special. you may have eaten aloo or paneer tikki and may have got bored of those. this lentil stuffed tikki would certainly make it more interesting. i have used channa dal but it does taste awesome with any type of lentil. even i was not aware of such stuffed tikkis and i only came across recently while i browsing the frozen section in indian grocery store. these stuffed tikki’s are popular offerings from haldiram and mtr frozen offerings and this recipe is very much inspired by it. even though i am not a huge fan of frozen food, but i do get a lot of inspiration from those.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the dal tikki recipe. firstly, the potato selection is very crucial for this recipe or as matter of fact for any roasted potato recipe. i generally use potatoes used to make chips or wedges and they produce one of the crisp and crunchy tikki. secondly, the stuffing can be easily varied and you can choose from paneer, to mix vegetables and even met if you like to. ensure the stuffing is well mashed and also contains less moisture so that it can be easily shaped. lastly, i have pan-fried this tikki in a low to medium flame. this ensures it is crisp on the outside and gets evenly cooked on the inside.
