Aloo Tikki.....!!!!

A north Indian snack made of boiled potatoes and various spices. Found in almost every chaat shop or stall all over Delhi and other parts of India. It is served hot along with tamarind and green chutney and some yogurt. It is also known as "tikiya" in Hindi.


3 large boiled aloo (potatoes)
1 tsp salt or as per taste
2-3 bread slice

For Stuffing:
2/3rd cup matar (green peas) cooked or frozen peas defrosted
1 mashed boiled aloo
1/2 tbsp scrapped and minced ginger
1/4th tsp garam masala
1/4th tsp salt or to taste
Red chili powder to taste (optional)
1tsp coarsely ground dry-roasted cumin seeds
Oil for pan-frying.

How to make aloo tiki :
Take the cooked or defrosted peas (matar) and mash them using a spoon or a fork. Add all the stuffing ingredients except oil and mash briefly. Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions and keep aside.

Peel the potatoes and mash them very finely into smooth mashed potatoes.Cut the brown edge of bread slice and mashed it with wet hands,add it to potatoes.Add salt and knead until properly mixed.
Divide it into 10 equal portions.
Now wash and dry your hands and rub them with little oil.
Take each portion of potato mixture and make a ball. Now Taking one at a time, gently flatten each ball into a round patty of about 1/2-inch thick and place a portion of stuffing in the center and fold the edges together very finely so that mixture does not come out.
Now very gently flatten it into a 2-inch patty. Repeat the procedure for all pieces.
Heat 1 tsp. oil in a non-stick pan over a low heat. Slip in the patties, not too many at a time, and pan-fry on both sides till crisp golden brown, adding oil if required, on a very low heat.

Served it as it is with green chutney or served as chaat ie...Take aloo tikki in serving place pour some Curd then some Tamarind chutney and sprinkle some salt,red chili and roasted cumin seeds.
Aur you can use it in Aloo Tikki Burger.
