Shalgum Ki Tikki/ Turnip Tikki




Shalgum is a winter's special vegetable.
It is my favourite and I love to cook it with various other vegetable like shalgum-matar, shalgum-gibhi shalgum-aloo or gajar aur shalgum.
It is a root vegetable which belongs to radish family. The flavor is mildly sweet so it can be eaten raw in salad like radish or carrot.
People also make shalgum ka bharta which is absolutely delicious.
It is rich in fiber and helps to requlate our metabolism.
Here I have made shalgum tikki which has turned out to be delicious. I have used soaked chana dal as binding agent and also used some of my favorite spices like star anise and little amount of rose patels.
I am sharing the recipe with hopes that you all will like it and I am also planning some more interesting recipes by using this wonderful healthy vegetable.
