Cut the sides of Bread and just crumble it . Sieve and clean poha . Wash poha under running water for a minute. Allow it to drain fully. Poha should be soft enough. Roast Peanuts on slow flame, take out covering and grind into mixer.
After ten minutes when poha dry fully, mix all the ingredients by your fingures. Sprinkle some water and make like a dough. Here dough means not a literally dough but when you give shape of tikki , poha mixture should allow you to give shape. And by adding water poha mixture won’t be so dry and gives good result.
Make a soft dough . Take out small portion and press between palms. Give shape of cutlet.
In a small bowl mix corn flour and Maida . Add water and make smooth and thin batter .
Now we will shallow fry tikkis .. Heat some oil in a pan . Deep each shaped cutlets in Maida+corn flour mixture and place in hot oil . Fry till little crispy. change the sides and keep frying till crispy. Take out on an oil absorbent paper .
For friends , who want to roast on tava : Grease a griddle with 1 tsp oil when get proper hot place tikkis on it. Pour a tsp oil on tikkis. Allow it cook till becomes little crispy. Turn the side and cook again. You can pour a tsp oil if you feel necessary.
