Rava Peas Tikki

Just like all mums, I too have the same worries every day night before going to bed, what lunch / snack I'm going to pack for kid.  As a mum our responsibility doesn't end  just  by packing the food, it's also our responsibility to make sure that he / she likes it and enjoys the food.

Each and every kid is unique and they have different taste buds, only a mum will know what her child needs.  So here is a simple dish which I adapted from Tarldala's Cookbook ( Cooking for kids ).  It's a very simple, nutritious and very easy to make i.e. , you can pack it very easily for your kids even on a busy weekday morning.  According to your kids taste you can vary few flavours or the vegetables like instead of peas, you can also add corn, carrot or even broccoli.


Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Cooking Time : 15 minutes

Ingredients:
For the Outer Layer:
Rava / Semolina - 1/2 cup
Water- 1 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Oil- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/4 tsp

For the filling: ( Mix all the filling ingredients together )
Boiled and crushed peas- 1/2 cup
Chaat masala- 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil  for frying

Method:
Prepare the outer layer :
Heat the water along with the salt in a pan.  When water starts boiling add the rava little by little and keep stirring continuously.  Add turmeric and stir until it comes together like a dough.  Take it off from heat, add about a teaspoon of oil.  Cover it and leave the dough for about 5 minutes.
Divide the dough in to 8 equal rounds and divide the filling into 8 equal rounds. Apply oil to your hand and  flatten the dough in the middle of your palms. Place the filling in the middle and cover it without any cracks and flatten it again slightly.  Heat the oil in a pan and fry the tikki's in medium heat until they look light brown in colour.  Serve it warm with tomato ketchup .  To pack in a lunch box, let it cool down for a while, wrap it in aluminium foil and pack tightly in a lunch box.

To begin with, I'm a big fan of your clicks and editing....flawless!
I never heard of Rava Tikkis till now so I was amazed to see them; though thought in the beginning that it wud be like 'handwa' but not so, n I'm really happy about it. I'm trying this recipe very soon, for sure. :)
