Whenever i found leftover dal or any vegetable curry in fridge, we used in kneading dough. It gives flavorful and tasty parathas for breakfast. This time i used leftover dal to prepare tikki or kebab. For this recipe, mix the carrot, onion with dal and cook with sooji. You can serve this kebabs or tikkis with spicy green coriander chutney and lemon wedges. It’s a great evening snack with a cup of masala tea.
