Palak Matar Makai Tikki /Spinach Peas Corn Patties

I have been missing in action for almost a fortnight now.There have been some late nights at office lately and I have been also been pure lazy on the days when office was not that hectic. 
Before I share the recipe, I would like to thank all my readers and fellow bloggers for their lovely birthday wishes. :)  Your comments have made me forget all the lament that I did on my last post :))
This tikki was on my agenda for a long time since the time I saw them at Sanjeev Kapoor. Somehow one of the other ingredients were always missing whenever I wanted to make them, so I have kept it on hold. This weekend I ensured that I buy everything that was needed to make this. 

 1 large Potato, boiled and mashed 
1/2 cup Green peas, blanched
10 -12  Spinach leaves, blanched and chopped
1/2 cup Corn kernels, blanched
1/3 cup Cottage cheese (paneer), crumbled
1 Onion , chopped
 2 Green chillies, chopped
1 inch Ginger, chopped
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Black pepper powder
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Red chilli Powder
2-3 tbsp Cornflour/ corn starch
Oil  to shallow fry


  1. Heat  1 tsp oil in a pan. Add onion and green chillies and sauté for two minutes. Add peas and spinach and saute for 2 minutes.l.Let it cool and then coarsely grind in a mixture/grinder
  2. In a bowl, Add peas and spinach mixture, mashed  potatoes,chopped ginger, salt, pepper powder,roasted cumin powder and half the cornflour and mix well. 
  3. Coarsely grind blanched corn kernels in a mixture/grinder Add cottage cheese salt,red chili powder and mix. Add the remaining cornflour and mix.
  4. Take a portion of the spinach-peas-potato mixture and shape into a flat and thick tikki. Using a cutter cut out a round from the center of the tikki . Take a little portion of the corn mixture and place it in the hole of the spinach-peas-potato tikki and press lightly.
  5. Heat oil in another pan and fry the tikkis till golden on both the sides.
  6. Serve hot !!
