Rajma tikki

Rajma tikki is a healthy snack you can make for your family. Potato, besan, bread crumbs are used as binding agent, also makes more tasty.
I keep legumes in my freezer, especially the one which I won’t use that often. Chana is made weekly as chana masala mostly and it gets over soon. But other legumes like rajma is not made that often at home, I don’t know why myself.  I thought should change this habit and make rajma masala and rajma pulao often. Anyways I got rajma for consuming more often, so made rajma pulao, rajma salad, rajma masala one round and still have some left with me. Though rajma paratha can be made, I wanted to try something that I have not tried earlier. So wanted to try tikki with it. Made this simple one. Do try for your family.
