Sai-Bhaji Tikkis

I love making these tikkis as a healthy afternoon snack or appetizer with drinks. These tikkis or vegetable patties are made with left over Sai Bhaji. Sai bhaji is a delicious vegetable made with spinach, dill, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and lentil.

I dry the sai bhaji mixture by cooking it on medium flame in a saucepan or flat griddle. Then, add a pinch a garam masala powder and bread for binding. Make round patties and shallow fry. Serve hot and enjoy!


  • 1 1/2 cups sai bhaji
  • 6 Β slices bread, soaked in water and squeezed tightly to remove the water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 2- 3 tablespoons oil
  • salt to taste


Heat the sai bhaji in a saucepan or griddle till all the water dries out and the mixture becomes thick.

Transfer to a plate, cool and add garam masala and bread. Salt to taste, if required. Mix well.

Shape into round balls and flatten them with your palms.

Heat oil on a griddle. Shallow fry the patties for 2 mins on each side. Serve hot and enjoy!
