How we made it

As per the instructions given on the pack, we heated some vegetable oil in a wok and deep-fried the Amul Dahi Tikki in it until crisp and golden brown. It took less than 5 minutes for it to turn crisp evenly.

Taste

Right off the flame, there was a strong onion aroma. As we bit into these Amul frozen snacks, there was a dominant onion taste in them. A few of us tasted bits of green chili as well. The seasonings and spices were well balanced. Since dahi and paneer are the major components of these Amul Happy Treats, we expected the tikkis to be loaded with a dahi kebab-like texture. However, the overall experience of eating these masti dahi tikkis is more like what you expect from cheese nuggets. The dahi is mildly sour to taste.

The chutney adds a refreshing minty flavor to the Amul Happy Treats. If you’re not a fan of green chutney, these can also be had with ketchup.

Texture

The breadcrumb coating gave these Amul frozen snacks the perfect crunch you’d expect from a fried snack. The tikkis were crisp on the outside and had a soft inside.

The Bottom Line

When we think about frozen food options suitable for vegetarians, the availability more or less comes to stop at potato-based snacks. Whether it is regular french fries or cheese-potato balls, the variety is limited. Amul has been introducing innovative frozen foods by the day. Some are paneer-based, while other Amul Frozen Snacks offer a burst of flavors. These Amul Happy Treats not only add a much-needed change to the menu but are also very versatile. From an evening snack to a pre-meal starter option, this Amul Masti Dahi Tikki cooks to perfection in no time. As these also have a significant green chilli kick, kids might not like it as much.
