I saw this episode on TV where they showcased awesome street food of Indore. One thing that caught my attention was “Kopra patties”. Street food is celebrated by people from all parts of society. Earlier I knew Holi was solely about playing with colors. After marriage, I got introduced to the “cuisine celebration” part of the festival.
Usually, it’s a deep fry but I used “appe” pan (google: Danish ebleskiver pan) for frying. The taste of deep fried patty and an “appe” pan cooked patty was same. They look slightly different and it took a bit more time for frying in “appe” pan.

Apply oil to your palm, take a small portion of dough and flatten it. Place a small portion of coconut mixture in the center. Fold all the edges finely, so that mixture does not come out and make a round shape. In an “appe”” pan, add a little oil, fry tikki in low to medium flame until it is golden brown on all sides. Serve hot with sweet chutney…..
