Chola Tikki is a spicy, yummy snack made with boiled chole (chickpeas). In winter days these hot tikki or patties goes very well. I hope you like this recipe.


3 potatoes, boil, peel and mash them
1 tbsp ginger, shredded
salt to taste
1 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
oil to shallow fry


1: Drain the water out of the chickpeas and dry the chickpeas using paper towel making sure there is no access water in chickpeas. Mash the chickpeas coarsely; do not make smooth.

2: Mix all the ingredients together, adjust salt and pepper to your taste.

3: With oiled hands, divide the mixture into 8-10 equal portions. Make them into the shape of patties keeping them about a half inch thick.

4: Heat the oil in a flat bottom pan on medium flame and shallow fry the tikkis on both sides until both sides are golden brown.

Serving Suggestions:

1: Serve tikki hot. Drizzle some yogurt, tamarind chutney and green chutney over the tikki or use any combination you prefer.

2: It can also be served with tomato ketchup.

How to bake tikkies in oven:

Heat the oven to 350 degrees, brush oil generously on both sides of the Tikki and bake them on a greased cookie sheet. Let them bake for about 20 minutes then turn and cook for another 10 minutes until the Tikki are golden brown.


1: Do not cool the potatoes under running water because the potatoes will absorb the extra water,making potatoes mushy.
