Aaloo Tikki

I have borrowed this recipe from vegrecipesofindia. It was today's tea time snack. And was an instant hit. So I chose to blog it. Sadly, I couldnt capture a picture of it. It was over by then. Over to the recipe.


1. Potato 3
2. Onion 1 thinly sliced
3. Green chilly 1/2 very thinly sliced
4. coriander leaves 1/2 a handful finely chopped
5. turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
6. Coriander powder 1/2 tsp
7. Curry masala powder 1/2 tsp.
8. Bread crumbs - 2 breads


Cut potatoes into halves and cook (two whistles in cooker)
When cooled drain off water and peel skin.
Grate potatoes and mix well.
Add onion, gren chilly, leaves, powders and salt.
Mix very well and roll to form balls and press to cutlet shapes.
Roll over bread crumbs.
Add oil on a flat tawa and shallow fry till both sides are crispy.

In the original recipe, an addition of a binder (like arrowroot powder/bread crumbs/corn starch/rice powder is used). However I have not used any binder. The tikki was not very firm like normal cutlets.
But were really tasty though.
