    • Soak moong dal in a bowl overnight.
    • Boil the potatoes, peel and grate them finely.
    • Heat 2 tablespoon of ghee in a non-stick pan. When it gets slightly hot, add cumin seeds and fry a little while stirring. When it becomes slightly brown, add asafoetida, grated ginger, green chilli and fry it while stirring continuously.
    • When it starts smelling good, add soaked moong dal to it and fry for about 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
    • Add chopped cashews to it and mix well. Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and mix well. Add 1 - 2 tablespoons water and mix well. Cover the pan with a lid and cook it on medium flame for about 2-3 minutes.
    • Open the pan and stir well. Add chopped coriander, raisins and chaat masala and mix well.
    • Turn off the gas. Stuffing is ready.
    • Take boiled and grated potatoes in a bowl. Add roasted cumin powder, salt, corn flour and mix them well.
    • Take a handful of potato mixture and make a ball by pressing them into your fist. Now press it between your palms and lie flat. Put 1 teaspoon moong dal stuffing in the middle and gently fold the potato mixture and cover the stuffing completely.
    • Now make a ball again and flat it a little with your palm and give it the shape of a tikki. Dust it with corn flour and keep it aside.
    • Make all the raw tikkis in this way.
    • Heat 1/2 cup ghee in a flat bottomed non-stick pan on low heat. When it gets slightly hot, keep 3 - 4 tikkis for shallow frying in ghee.
    • When the tikkis turn golden brown from one side, flip to fry from the other side. Fry till it turns golden brown from both the sides.
    • The tikkis are crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside. So take them out in a plate and press with a flat spoon and then transfer them to ghee on high heat. Fry them again for 1 minute on both sides to become crisp from the inside.
    • Do not cook on other wise, the taste will get worse even the tikki will become hard.
    • Turn off the gas. Transfer the tikkis to a plate.
    • Take yogurt in a bowl and add sugar and black salt and beat it well.
    • In another small bowl, add coriander powder, black salt, roasted cumin powder and red chili powder and mix well to make the masala for the tikkis.
    • Take 2 tikkis in a plate and add 2-3 spoon whisked curd, tamarind chutney, mint chutney and the prepared masala. Add some curd and chutney again. Garnish with ginger julienne, green chili if you like, chopped coriander and some pomegranate seeds.
    • The delicious tikki is ready to eat. Eat and enjoy delicious tikki.
