Aloo tikki is a golden fried-potato patty that is stuffed either with peas or dal and served with a variety of spicy chutneys and sometimes chickpeas or just a potato patty that has spices added to it before being fried to a crisp.
9 potatoes pressure cooked
5 green chillies
2 inch piece of ginger grated
5 cloves of garlic
3 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves
Oil to roast the tikkis.
Peel the boiled potatoes and grate them. Make a paste of the green chillies, ginger and garlic.
To the grated potatoes add the ginger, garlic, green chilly paste, finely chopped coriander leaves and salt. Mix everything really well and knead it. Shape into tikkis, roll them into bread crumbs and keep them aside.
Heat a tava/ griddle. Drizzle some oil on it and spread it evenly. Now place as many tikkis as possible on the pan. Drizzle them with oil. Let the tikkis roast till they get golden brown in color. Then flip and roast the other side as well. Transfer the tikkis to a plate and serve hot with tamarind and mint chutney.
