Carrot Capsicum Tikkis

We are starting the second week of BM#53 and I will be doing Snacking all the way for the next three days. Making snacks for my kids are pretty standard. When it comes to my boys, I can only think of chocolates, cakes or ice creams. I know these may not strictly fall under snacks. However they think that and I leave it at that!

When it is Konda that I am making something, I can be more adventurous and try out different tikkis, cutlets, including burgers. If you must know, Tikkis and Cutlets are the same, I differentiate the way I make them. For me, cutlets will always be deep fried, whereas Tikkis can be shallow or pan fried.

I mostly pan fry my tikkis when its for Burgers. And also you have the option of sneaking in vegetables when you make these. Not that Konda needs to be sneaked in, for all the picky kid she was, thanks to blogging, she now is ready to taste anything. And has got used to enjoying the vegetables as well.

The Tikkis today were made for buggers, I missed clicking the burger, since there is nothing new in that. Since the tikkis were enjoyed as such as well, I decided I would show the tikkis on its own. The clicks are entirely taken by Konda as I didn't have time. So I was taken in on how much she was thinking on the composition as well.

While I used to buy the burger buns previously, ever since I made it at home, I don't want to try anything else than my Homemade Burger Buns . I also have a typical store bought burger done. You could check out Potato and Sweet Corn Sliders or Roasted Vegetables Sliders for other options.
