Sai Bhajji Tikki is usually made from Left over Sai Bhajji. Sai Bhajji is a healthy Sindhi dish made with Spinach and mix of many vegetables, its high in iron. It is a quick appetizer to make when you have some left over Sai Bhaji. When I was kid I would never eat Sai Bhaji, but when mama used to make these the next day I would only eat these. I still love them and mama makes sure to make more sai Bhaji just to make these for me. Again one of mama's recipe. Thanks mama.

This goes to the Monthly Mingle - Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres event started by Meeta of What's For Lunch Honey? , hosted by Mansi of Fun and Food this month.

1 cup Sai Bhajji
2 tbsp Besan / Gramflour
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 tsp Mango Powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp red chilli powder or 1 green chili, chopped (optional)
1 tsp chat masala
salt to taste (Remeber the Bhajji already has salt)
oil for deep frying.

Method
  1. If the Sai Bhajji is watery, heat it in high till the water evaporates and the Sai Bhajji is very thick.
