- 1/2 tsp chat masala
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tbsp coriander chopped

Peal and pressure cook the bananas for 4 whistles, or until soft.
Once the pressure cools, mash the bananas and peas with a masher or back of your spoon.
Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds and let them splutter.
Add onions and chillies and sauté till they get soft and translucent.
Add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw aroma fades.
Add the spices, chat masala, salt, flour and fry for 1 minute.
Add 2 tbsp water and let the spices sizzle for a few seconds.
Add the mashed bananas and peas and fry for another minute.
Switch off the flame and keep aside.
Once the mixture cools down add paneer and divide into 8 equal portions.
Roll into balls, then with damp hands flatten them slightly and shape them into round patties.
Heat the remaining oil on a pan and shallow-fry the tikkis until golden brown and crisp on both sides.
Serve hot with green chutney.
