Nutrella Vegetable and Cheese tikkis/Pancakes

Made these tikkis after a long time when a close friend of mine asked me to post about this. She and I spent some of our beautiful “younger” years together :-). And these tikkis were one of the very few culinary items I had tried my hands at, before marriage. Though she did not get to taste it then, she had to bear me boasting about how my (late) grand mother had liked it very much then. I was surprised to know that she still remembered all this πŸ™‚ Thats how good friends are I guess. So dedicating this one to my dear friend Seema. 
Not too happy with the pic. There was too much chaos in the house with repair work on. Just managed to take this photograph speedily.

Serving : 5
6 medium sized Potato – boiled and peeled

1 cup Soya granules – boiled and drained
1/4 cup of assorted vegetables – grated or finely chopped (I used only carrots)
1 tbsp ginger – grated
1 green chilli – finely chopped
1/2 tsp Black salt
1 tsp Chat Masala
3 tbsp processed cheese – grated
1/4 tsp Black pepper powder
2 tbsp Semolina – for coating
Salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying


  • Grate or finely mash the potatoes so that there are no lumps.
  • Squeeze out the water out of soya granules.
  • Mix together all the ingredients. Make round disks with thickness and size of your preference. Coat them with semolina.
  • Heat a non-stick griddle. Sprinkle a few drops of oil and cook from both sides on medium heat. I have flattened them slowly and gradually as they were getting cooked. I find it crispier and easier to handle this way rather than keeping it thin from the beginning. These can also be baked or deep fried.
  • Serve them hot with mint chutney or tomato sauce.
