1 teaspoon dried mint leaves

Himalayan salt (sendha namak)

3 tablespoons oil

Instructions

1. Pressure-cook the bananas and potatoes with their peel on. Cook them for about 3 whistles or 10 minutes. Do not rush through this process as we want the bananas to be soft and tender to make a smooth mash.

2. Remove from water and allow them to cool. When comfortable to touch, peel potatoes and banana. Transfer it to a big bowl.

3. Mash potatoes and banana with a fork or potato masher.

4. Stir in all the spices and add Tapioca flour.

5. Grease your hands and shape tikkis.

6. Heat a heavy bottomed pan and add tikkis to it.

7. Cook tikkis for 8-10 minutes on low flame, turning occasionally until evenly browned on both sides.

Serve with phalhari green chutney.
