The aloo and channa dal when deep fried surely makes a great snack!
While these make a great snack, check out the Oats Honey Loaf that I have baked as well!
I made the patties in oblong size and deep fried. Then made as discs and pan fried. Deep fried drunks lot of oil and pan fried was done well.
However you can still have these deep fried if you freeze the tikkis for 15 - 20 mins before frying them.
