Grate or mash the boiled potatoes. Add corn flour and all the spices in it and knead a dough for tikki with this. Keep this aside.
For chana dal stuffing, mix together boil dal and all the ingredients mentioned in stuffing section in a bowl.
Now from tikki dough, break equal size small balls. Keep them aside.
Take one ball and flattened it with your palms. Add 1 tablespoon of the chana dal mixture in the center.
Now start bringing all the sides and seal the potato ball from all sides making it look like big ball.
Gently flatten the ball to give it a tikki or patty shape. Make tikki from all the balls by filling the stuffing.
You can deep fry them also. But i prefer to shallow fry them. So, in a nonstick pan grease some oil and heat it. Now put your tikki on it.
And shallow fry on low to medium flame until golden brown.
Keep them out on paper towel.
Now in a serving dish, arrange 2 tikki and pour some plain yogurt, green chutney and tamarind chutney on it. Quantity of yogurt and chutney depends on personal taste and requirements.
