Aloo Tikki !



Aloo Tikki (Potato cutlet) is a delicious snack / starter  made with boiled potatoes mixed with Indian spices, and mostly shallow fried. It is nice and crisp from outside and the soft and spicy potato from inside.
It is also combined with the chole and made as a chat  (Aloo Tikki Chole Chat) which is amazingly delicious.. Will post that soon too.


INGREDIENTS
  • 3 Potatoes (Boiled and peeled)
  • 1/2 cup Green Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 carot (grated)
  • 1 onion (chopped finely)
  • 2 Green Chillis (chopped finely)
  • 1 tsp Grated Ginger (or GG paste)
  • 1 - 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp corn flour + 1 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • salt as needed
  • Juice of half lemon (or 1 tsp amchur powder)
  • 2 - 3 tbsp to shallow fry

STEPS
  • Mash the boiled potatoes nicely.
  • Cook the Peas in microwave for 4 mins (or just boil in water), and then discard the water completely and pat dry.
  • Then mash then as well with a masher 


  •  In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well to form a nice dough.


  •  Refrigerate for 30 mins and then, on a plate just spread them with your palms.
  • Cut out small patties with a cookie cutter as shown.
  • Then just dip them in corn flour once to coat well.


  •  Heat oil in a shallow fry pan and then place the tikkis carefully.
  • Fry them until brown, flipping them now and then.

NOTES

  • You can also add finely chopped capsicum to this.
  • Corn flour is added to give nice binding. You may feel its sticky when combining everything, can add a spoon of corn flour more.
  • Instead of cutting with cookie cutters, you can roll them into small balls and then give a pattie shape with your hands.
  • Instead of coating them with corn flour, you can also dip them in (2 tbsp flour + water mix)and then coat in bread crumbs. Then deep fry them in oil or shallow fry them as per preference.
  • Serve with any sauce of your choice or the classic Green Chutney



With Love,
