Potato Quinoa Patties
Tikkis are cutlets or patties normally made with potatoes, greens, onions, chile, spices and such.
Dad prefers flavors that he knows. Some years lower back, it was next to impossible to get him to strive
some thing outside Indian delicacies. He has on the grounds that emerge as a chunk greater adventursome. So while
Mom desired to make a few aloo tikki for dinner sooner or later, I recommended we upload quinoa. Mom
stated, “Yes, however add just a little so he gained’t realize.” The prep time includes the time it takes to
prepare dinner the potato and quinoa, however when you have cooked potato and quinoa reachable, the patties can
be geared up in mins. The patties can effortlessly be made gluten-loose through omitting the bread slice or
substituting coarsely floor gluten-unfastened oats or breadcrumbs. You can regulate the spices or simply
use garam masala. You can serve the patties by myself with ketchup, sriracha, BBQ sauce, or
chutney. However, those patties are first-rate served with Chickpea Curry (here), and a garnish of
chopped onion, cilantro, lemon juice, and chutneys. These patties are high-quality when pan-fried.
