"For Little Tummies"- Mix Vegetable Tikki/ Vegetable burger/Mix Vegetable Tikki Chaat

When you want to sneak in Veggies into the little tummies, something like this really works for my little guy.
The more 'colorful' (with veggies) you make this tikki the more nutritious it will be.I also add various spices to make it more flavorful and mask the 'sulfurous' odor of cabbage.
I use this recipe for making mix vegetable tikkis, mini burgers with vegetable patties, mix vegetable tikki chat etc etc.The 'Cabbage-Corn-Carrots'  along with Potatoes and Ginger-Garlic paste -combo is my favorite,but I also add spinach, black beans, peas as per availability in my refrigerator.

1 cup boiled mashed potatoes
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/4th cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup corn kernels
1tbsp boiled black beans
1/4th cup chopped spinach
1tsp Ginger-garlic paste
1/2tsp cumin seeds
1/tsp mustard seeds
1/2tsp fennel seeds
1/4tsp Garam masala
1/4th tsp Turmeric powder
1/4tsp chili powder(use as per desired spiciness)
2tsp oil
Plain bread crumbs for coating
Oil for shallow frying

If making burgers: Burgers buns/bread rolls
If making Mix vegetable Tikki Chaat- all the fixings for chat- Chopped onions,tomatoes,tamarind chutney/yogurt, sev etc

1) Heat 2 tsp oil,add mustard,cumin seeds. Fry the cabbage, carrots, spinach, corn till tender.Add the Ginger garlic paste,spices, potatoes, black beans, salt and fry for few minutes.
