Cheese Stuffed Potato Cutlets or Tikki and Sandwich

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
When I got married to a Sindhi, I got few Sindhi cooking books from my friends and my brother. 
I took the book by Anita Raheja and I have tried most of the recipes from her book. And I can manage to cook many Sindhi dishes with her cooking book.
Last week was the Sindhi Food week for me, I prepared Sai bhaji, Sindhi Curry, Bhooga chavar, Seyal Dabal and yesterday I made Aloo tikki.
Still Independence month is going on :-)
But I thought to do some variation in this. Now a days, I am using more dairy products for my kids, as my younger daughter does not drink milk everyday. I keep Cheese in my fridge, whenever it is available. Today I had Mozzarella cheese. I thought of stuffing it in the tikki and try. And for sure, tikkis came out very well. I enjoyed it with green chutney, my younger daughter had mini tikkis and the elder one had it as a sandwich filler.

Now, some information about the nutrition values of Potatoes and Cheese.
The potato is the best source of Carbohydrate. And contains vitamins and minerals. And potato is very good food for kids if given every alternative day in any form such as curry, paratha, fry or baked potatoes.
And now about cheese : Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fatproteincalcium, and phosphorus.(Cheese) And Cheese is a very good source of calcium which is a good option for a mother of those kids who does not like to have milk.

Here goes the recipe,

Potato - 6 medium
Shelled Peas - 1/4 cup(optional)
Bread - 2 pieces
Corn flour - 1 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp

For stuffing,

Mozzarella Cheese - 1/2 cup, grated for stuffing
White pepper powder - 1 tsp
Salt a pinch
Mix the three ingredients slowly and keep it in a fridge till you prepare the tikki dough.

To make paste :
Fresh coriander - 1 tbsp
Green chilly - 2 or more if you like it spicy
Cumin Seeds - 1tsp
Salt to taste 
Make fine paste with above ingredients. 

Oil to fry the Tikkis

1. Boil the potatoes. Peel and smash it or grate it.
2. Boil the peas and smash it.
3. Soak the bread pieces in water for a minute. Drain the water.
4. Take the grated potatoes, peas, chilly paste, corn flour, mashed bread and oil in a big bowl or plate. 
5. Mix well to make a soft dough. 
6. Divide the dough into equal portions.
7. Take one portion, press in the middle and put 1 tsp cheese. 
8. Carefully close it and give a ball shape, taking care of not pressing hard. 
9. Flatten it to make round tikki.
10. Repeat with other dough.


11. Heat oil in a kadai.
12. Deep fry in hot oil till golden color.
13. Serve hot with  GREEN CHUTNEY or ketchup.

The first pic looks seriously offensive when viewed in a particular way and you should probably change it.....your blog of course, but just my suggestion since you don't seem to see how it could be viewed by others.
