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.
