Aloo Tikki


This is an amazing evening snack! Definitely North Indian, but I decided to include it here. 🙂


500gm potatoes, boiled & peeled
25gm cornflour/maida
1/2 cup green peas, boiled
2 green chilles, finely diced
juice of 1/2 lemon
1tsp cumin powder (jeera)
1tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
oil for frying

  • Mash potatoes into a dish
  • Mix all the ingredients except oil
  • divide into equal portions and make into balls
  • Flatten each ball between the palms into discs
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and shallow fry over medium heat until golden brown and crisp on both sides

Serve hot with ghee-roasted bread, or plain with tomato ketchup.
