Oats Tikki - Oats patties - Healthy snack recipe

My kids love any tikki. I love it too because you can serve it in multiple ways as snack or as patties for burger or stuffing for wraps. This also can quick way to hide vegetables for your fussy eaters. I particularly like this tikki as it uses lentil as a base not potato. This can be served as starters or as snack for after school / work. It is quite tasty and filling yet very healthy snack
