So when you get bored of having potatoes, then sweet potato is a welcome change. if you like potatoes, then you can make the same recipe with potatoes. Whether with sweet potatoes or potatoes, these tikkis are delicious. Few more Snacks Recipes which you can make during fasting days are Shakarkandi chaatFarali pattiesArbi tikki, Sabudana tikki, Sabudana vada and Farali batata vada.

Serve the Sweet potato tikki with a Phalhari green chutney or Coconut chutney or even sweet tamarind chutney and you have nice comforting snack.

For binding the tikkis, I have used arrowroot flour. If you cannot get arrowroot flour, then you can use water chestnut flour or buckwheat flour. when making during a non fasting season, you can add corn flour also. Remember to use sendha namak (rock salt) in the recipe, when you are making for religious fasting or vrat. On normal days you can use black salt instead of sendha namak.

  2. I am a big fan of your recipes. Am planning to try the tikkis today, however I do not have any of the mentioned flours. Can I use maida / besan or any other substitute? looking fwd to your response.5 stars

    1. thanks charuta. you can use any flour for binding. like maida, besan or rice flour. if using besan, then lightly roast it and then add. rice flour and maida can be added without roasting.
