Protein Tikki Sandwich Recipe
Yes, it is a vegetarian recipe and sure it is full of protein.
This is an original recipe made from blended sprouts and soaked soya beans with a little bit of spices.
I used add egg to this mixture earlier for binding but then the 2 vegetarians in the house would have to eat something different. There is though some levels of preparation for the sandwich required.
Paneer gets a little boring in the regular affair and so a good replacement like this tikki helps for a tastier alternative.
Here is my recipe for the same.
This recipes requires Hummus… If you don’t have it ready, you can make your own by following this recipe of Hummus
