Rajma Tikki / Red Kidney Beans Cutlet

Rajma tikki is one easy scrumptious snack to make as long as u have some cooked beans on hand. I usually make these for after school snack for my son, specially on cold winter days.
Nothing like a protein loaded, warm tikki/cutlet dunked in ketchup or chutney.

1 cup cooked rajma,
2 bread slices,
1 tbsp ginger, minced,
1 tbsp garlic, minced,
1 tsp amchur powder,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder/haldi,
1 tsp garam masala,
3 tbsp chopped parsley or coriander leaves,
salt to taste.

  • In a food processor add bread slices and make bread crumbs, add rajma and pulse a few more times, than add the rest of the ingredients and pulse again.
  • Take out in a bowl.
  • Make small balls and flatten slightly to make discs or long strips.
  • Shallow fry in a hot skillet using little oil on medium heat.


Add minced green chilly for a more spicy tasting cutlet.
