How to make matar tikki roll?
1) First and foremost, take a pan and heat some oil in it. Add cumin seeds and fresh boiled green peas. You can add some green chilli and grated ginger into it. Mix it well and then coarsely mash the green peas while they are in the pan. You can use a masher for this purpose.
2) Now, add the boiled potatoes, then the spices such as turmeric powder, chaat masala and salt. Mix it well for a couple of minutes. Use a binding agent like cornflour and then move it to a plate platter. Now, take from some portions from the mixture and give it the shape of tikkis. Shallow fry them until they turn a little brown.
3) Finally, take the lachha paratha and lay it out on a table. Spread some mayonnaise, followed by green chutney. Now, you can place a couple of tikkis and break them just to spread it properly to make the wrap. Add some dressing in the form of onions rings, lemon juice and red chilli powder. Fold it neatly and your matar tikki wrap is ready.
