Mushroom patties – Mushroom cutlet recipe


Mushroom patties – Mushroom tikki – a simple spicy snack with boiled potatoes, mushroom and puffed amaranth.

This will be a good after school snack for the kids. Instead of plain potato patties, this is a more nutritious snack as this has mushrooms, puffed amaranth, and walnuts in it. But freshly made plain potato patties are more healthy than any store-bought snacks. I sometimes make plain potato patties using this mashed potato recipe.

Mushrooms are good source of protein and vitamins B, D for vegetarians. Other than making gravy curries or soups with it, this patties will be a good option to use these in our diet.

In this recipe, I have used this brand of puffed amaranth. I also make puffed amaranth at home, will write a post on it sometime. If puffed amaranth is not available, you can use puffed quinoa or poha or rice flakes as well. Taste might be different in these cases but the main purpose of using these as a binding agent can be fulfilled.

Recipe notes for mushroom tikki :

  • This is a no onion recipe but has garlic paste but you can omit it and just add ginger paste alone.
  • You can bake these in an oven as well instead of shallow frying in the pan.
  • If your dough has more water content, try adding more puffed amaranth.
  • If the dough becomes too dry, just sprinkle some water.
  • I use this Mushroom Tikki dough to make koftas for the kofta curry. I usually fry these small koftas in the paniyaram pan.
