Sausage tikki

Preparation time: 45 min | Cooking time: 10 min

Tikki's are very similar to cutlets. These are ideal for snacks and goes well for sandwiches too. When I was short of minced meat I thought sausages would be a good replacement. That's how this dish was prepared.

Boiled potatoes-3
Coriander powder-1tsp
Chilli powder-1/2tsp
Garam masala-1/2tsp
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Chopped coriander leaves-1tbsp
Bread slices-3
Bread crumbs
Salt to taste

Mince the sausages in a mixer. Mash the potatoes well and add all the masalas and the minced sausages to it. Soak the bread slices in water, squeeze well and add to the potato mixture. Add the coriander leaves, salt and mix well.

Shape each portions into a flat round like a disc. Roll it over breadcrumbs (you can store these in the freezer for later use) and shallow fry in a medium flame until brown on both sides. You can also deep fry if needed. Serve hot with sauce or ketchup.

Note: It is always good to prepare & store the tikki's in the refrigerator an hour before frying. This is to help the crumbs bind well.
