Aloo Tikki





Serves: 4 - 6 people

6 – 8 medium size potatoes – red or white
100g thawed and crushed peas
1 tbsp grated or finely chopped ginger
1 green chili finely chopped
some freshly chopped cilantro
1 – 2 tsp red chili powder or as per taste
salt to taste
3 – 4 tbsp bread crumbs
1 – 2 tsp garam masala
Oil for cooking


Cook the potatoes and mash them well. Mix all the above ingredients in the list. Make small balls of the mixture by placing in between your palms, then press it to flatten a bit.

Heat a non-sick pan or iron skillet and drizzle some oil. Place the patti and cook it on medium flame. Once golden brown, flip it to cook on the other side. Add some oil if needed. You can cook many patties at a time on the pan depending on the surface area. You can eat hot and fresh tikki just plain or accompany it with yogurt, tamarind date chutney or a corriander chutney.
