- I have used plain boiled kidney beans for these tikkis, but you can also use canned kidney beans for this recipe.
- I used bread slices for making tikkis, but you can replace them with breadcrumbs.

- I have added whole grain bread to the mixture, but feel free to add any other bread of your choice.
