Made with spinach, potatoes, and green peas, this is a divine snack for vegetarians, and can also be served as part of a meal.

Pro Tip- If you don’t wish to fry your kabab, then bake in an oven pre-heated at 180 degrees Celsius for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Don’t forget to flip the kabab halfway. Baking will give the Tikki, a crunchier texture.
