The video begins with the vendor using grated boiled potatoes, taking them into his hands, topping them with a mixture of dal and peas, and sealing them with another layer of grated boiled potatoes. After that, the tikki is placed on a griddle and shallow-fried. Following the cooking process, two pieces of tikki are delicately placed in a small bowl made from green leaves. The tikkis are then garnished with green and red chutney, yoghurt, paneer cubes, and chaat masala before being served. The background audio reveals that the price of this lacha tikki chaat is 80 rupees per plate.
