* Soak the whole wheat bread in water for a few seconds. Now squeeze all the water from the bread and add it to the chopped potato.

* Add cumin powder, coriander powder, chaat masala, ginger powder, green chilies, red chili powder, mango powder and black salt to the spices. Put it in the potato and mash the potato.

* Now divide the mixture into 5 equal parts and make patties from it. Now apply cornflour around it.

* You have to pour some oil and cook it on a nonstick pan. Pour some oil on the tikkis and cook till brown and crispy on both sides.

Now put the tikkis in a ball and mix the chickpeas in it and after that add some curd, green chutney or sweet tamarind chutney. Tomato ketchup will also work if you don't have chutney ready.
