Hariyali Tikki aur Chole

This potato and methi tikki is filled with cheese. The cheese just melts once the tikkis are fried with the result that the tikkis taste best when they are hot.
Be careful while filling the tikkis with cheese and make sure that the cheese is completely enclosed in the potato portion. Otherwise, the cheese will ooze out of the tikki while it is being fried.
You can enjoy these tikkis with ketchup and can even make a burger out of it.
I love them with hot chole!
