Jackfruit Seeds Tikki

This was a truly delicious tikki I have ever had. Even my hubby could not stop finishing his plate fast and then looking over my plate. As potato is the main ingredient in any tikki , same is here but the best part was the jackfruit seeds and the masala used in it.

Ingredients :

1. Potato (boiled)- 2
2. Jackfruit seeds- 10
3. Salt to taste
4. Aamchur powder- 1 tsp
5. Curry leaf- 10
6. White pepper powder- 1/2tsp
7. Green chilly (chopped)- 1
8. Onion (chopped)- 2 tbs
9. Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
10. Ajwain (carom seeds)- 1/2 tsp
11. Bread crumb- 1 cup
12. Cornflour- 2 tbs
13. Oil

Procedure :

First remove the white skin of the seeds. Its a very tedious job , but be patient. Pressure cook the seeds with a little salt. Remove the cooker after three whistles. Now remove the brown skin of the seeds and cut them into small chunks. Mash the boiled potatoes in a bowl. Add cumin , pepper , aamchur , chilly , onion , salt , carom seed , jack fruit seeds and fried curry leaves. Now in this recipe I have used some dried curry leaves and fried them in one tbs oil till they turned really crunchy. Mix everything well. 

Make a thick batter of the cornflour with a little water. Heat 3 tbs oil in a flat surface pan. Make tikki from the potato mixture and dip them into the cornflour batter and then roll them over the bread crumb. Shallow fry the tikkis (both the sides until golden brown). Serve them hot with your favorite chutney.

  10. hi khusi,, what a great idea using jack fruit seed as a recipe ingredient. , an added flavor to tikki, must be more flavorful

  11. The only thing I do out of jack fruit seed is boil it in sambhar or just eat it plain. This is delicious.
    Thanks for visiting me and your sweet comment. To prevent the dosa from breaking up first wait till the side is well done. then jst loosen it up & flip it over. If this does not work you can add either rice flour or besan. I generally use rava but you have to rest the batter for some time then.
