To start off with the tikian; boil the potatoes (with the skin on) til the knife easily goes into them without any pressure.
Drain the potatoes and peel the skins off (you will not need to use a potato peeler, it will be easy with your fingers). Then mash the potatoes in a bowl with a hand held or manual masher.
Add finely minced green chili peppers, a little bit of minced ginger to taste, and salt to taste. Mix them together
Shape the mix into small patties, and coat them with a little bit of all purpose flour (the flour make sure they do not break apart when being fried.
Place the tikian one by one into the vegetable oil and fry them until golden brown. When fried place them on a baking tray with towel paper on it to drain excess oil.
While the tikian are cooling off a bit, why not make the chole mix. To make the mix open a can of chickpeas drain the watery stuff in it. The wash and drain the chickpeas.
Once drained, fry the cumin seeds in vegetable oil. Add tomato paste and chickpeas. Mix togethers and garnish with coriander after you are done making the mix, coriander adds a great smell and make the dish look better.
Place how many tikian you want on a plate and garnish with indian yogurt (dahi) and finely minced onions.
