Oh boy, this daliya/Broken wheat tikki was a rage suddenly among family, friends and even a happy client who ordered a version of this. These tikkis are plump gorgeousness of health and happiness. Serve them with ragda, chole or even with chutney. They are real crowd favorites. I made them recently for the holi get together at a friend’s place.
