Snacks, snacks, snacks….this is what every kid keeps on hauting their Mum about. Isn’t it! And if its a holiday this becomes more. Like any other Mum, even I keep making eatable snacks with the available veggies/ingredients in my kitchen.
This is one such recipe which I usually make, where in I take potato as the base ingredient and just add any other veggies that I have. It is so quick and straightforward to make. On top of all this, its quite easy to please my kids.
Air-fryer is a new gadget in my kitchen, so this is my first recipe in the air-fryer series of my blog. I shall add more recipes from my air-fryer from now on. I explained both methods separately with pics, have a look below.
The tikki/cutlets which are pan-fried, also used very little oil, so its guilt-free too. The air-fried version of cutlets/tikki were more crunchier when compared to the pan-fried.
You can make the patties and freeze them, just pan-fry/ air-fry them before serving. Hence, this is a Vegan, Vegetarian, Glutenfree, Guilt-free, Prep-Food type of starter/snack.
