Posto Bara ( Khuskhus tikkis )

Cooking Time Required: 10-15 mins
Cost of preparation: 30-40 rupees

Ingredients: Posto(khus-khus/poppy seeds)( 6 tbs), finely chopped green chilli (2 nos), finely chopped onion (2-3 tbs), finely chopped coriander (1-2 tsp), mustard oil (2-3 tsp), salt to taste.

Preparation: Grind the posto into a thick coarse paste.

Add the finely chopped ingredients along with salt and a few drops of mustard oil. Mix well.

Cooking: Heat a non-stick tawa/pan. Take small balls of the paste and flatten on the tawa ( just like tikkis ). Drizzle generously with oil.

Cook on both sides till light brown-red.

Remove from fire and serve with white rice.

Tip: Grind the dry posto seeds. Then add water and grind again. The paste will be much more fine.


  1. Mouthwatering here, wat a terrific and super tempting snack.

  2. Tikkies are tempting. Just curious to know whether it is you authentic traditional recipe or you created by your own? However, it looks tempting. can't wait to try as it calls for smaller quanity.

  3. Those tikkis and truly tempting dear..New recipe to me.. Delicious!

  4. Sounds fab and completely new!
    Thanks for sharing the technique on grinding.
    I almost thought there would be some potatoes added too, but woooosh, there's none! This is a 'wow' recipe. :)
