Sweet Corn Tikki

There was a packet of sweet corn lying around in the fridge for a couple of days. As I was browsing through various food blogs, I hit upon a very nice recipe "Corn Tikki Patties" on

I decided to try it out with sweet corn instead of the corn cob. I also added in few additional spices that weren't used in the original recipe. The tikkis came out superb. They tasted heavenly. Tikki is definitely a very nice evening snack.

The following recipe makes about 12 tikkis.

  • Sweet Corn - 1 to 1.5 cups, boiled
  • Potatoes - 2 medium sized, boiled and mashed
  • Bread - 5 slices ( I used brown bread for a little healthier version). Grind the 5 slices in the mixer to make bread crumbs. You could alternatively use bread crumbs readily available in market.
  • Green Chilli - 2, finely chopped
  • Coriander - 1/3 cup, finely chopped
  • Ginger - 1" piece
  • Garlic - 3 flakes
  • Lemon - 1
  • Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala - 1 tsp
  • Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 2-3 tbsp for shallow fry ( I used olive oil)
  • Salt - to taste
bread crumbs, mashed potato, corn paste, coriander leaves, lemon juice, garam masala, red chilli powder, chaat masala, green chillies


Make a paste of the boiled sweet corn, half of the coriander leaves, ginger, garlic. To this paste add the mashed potato and the rest of the ingredients

Mix well and make a dough.

Divide the dough into equal sized balls. Grease your palm with a little oil and make the tikkis by pressing the balls between the palms. You could also make them into any shape you like.

Heat a non-stick pan on medium flame. Add about 1-2 tbsp oil. Place the tikkis on the pan and reduce the flame to minimum setting. Let the tikki cook on low flame for about 5 mins before flipping.

Flip and cook on other side. If needed add a little oil. Cook on low flame until it browns and forms a crisp crust.

Once cooked from both sides, remove onto a kitchen paper and press a bit to drain the excess oil.

Serve with any sauce of your choice or with pudina chutney or green chutney.

Note: You can vary the amount of spices according to your taste buds.
