Blogging Marathon# 33: Week 1/ Day 1
Theme: Combo Dishes – Tikkis/ Burgers
Dish: Aloo Tikki Wrap (Potato patty wrap)
After our month long Mega marathon last month with A-Z Andhra dishes, we are back to our regular 3 days a week Blogging marathon this month. My theme for the for the first week is ‘Combo Dishes’ involving tikkis and burgers. When I signed up I wasn’t sure what I would be cooking for this week. After all the planning, cooking and blogging non-stop for a whole month, this week feels so unplanned and on the spur of the moment. I haven’t cooked the dishes for next 2 days, hopefully they will be done on time.
My mom and my sister along with my niece are here with us. I’m enjoying the company and my mom’s Andhra dishes. In turn I’m trying new recipes on them — it’s a win-win situation for me, not sure if they think so or not 🙂
For the first day I made Aloo tikkis and served them inside wraps with some pickled red onions and shredded cabbage. I served these for dinner and everyone seemed to like them. I should have taken the pictures of the tikkis themselves but didn’t, as usual will have to blame the distracting kids that I had to shoo off during the photo shoot 🙂
I added only green peas to the tikkis, but you can use any other vegetable like carrot, green beans, corn etc. I flavored them with some pav bhaji masala and chaat masala. Sky is the limit for the number of variations these tikkis can have. So have fun with the ingredients and also the flavorings.
To add some crunch to the wraps, I made pickled red onions and shredded some savoy cabbage. All in all this is a very filling and tasty meal/ snack/ sandwich.
