Home made Aloo Tikki, a great evening snack. There are so many dishes we can make out of Potatoes and we all are crazy of potatoes. Especially the kids love potatoes and it is also very good for them. I have seen many children enjoying in McDonalds, KFC and many other places enjoying their burgers. The aloo tikki which we stuff in between the burger buns can be easily made in home and with the available burger buns, we can very well treat our kids in home itself and now I am going to tell how we can do that now. This involves only shallow frying the patties in a tawa and not deep frying.

Yield 20
Preparation Time-
Cooking Time30 mins 

Medium sized potatoes5
Green Chillies(Optional)2
Cumin Seeds1 teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder1/2 teaspoon
Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves1 tablespoon
Green Peas1/4 tablespoon
Bread Slices2
SaltTo taste
Oil  for Shallow frying1/4 Cup


  1. Boil the potatoes and remove the skin and mash it nicely and keep it aside
  2. Take the bread loaves, soak it in water and immediately take it out and mash it 
  3. Take a bowl and add mashed potatoes, bread loaves, green peas, cumin seeds, red chilli powder, chopped coriander leaves, salt and mix well
  4. Heat a tawa and keep the flame medium. Take a small ball of the prepared aloo tikki mixture and pat them in the middle to form a little patti in your palm and gently add it to the tawa. 
  5. Add 3-4 patties in one batch. Add oil to fry them in one side. As we are keeping the flame medium-low, it will take some time for the patties to cook and become crisp on one side
  6. Do not disturb them until they are cooked nicely oneside. Then gently turn it over to other side and allow it to shallow fry. 
  7. When the tikkis are fried and evenly coated and becomes crispy, remove them and place it in paper towel and add the next batch. Repeat the same steps to finish off the mixture.
  8. Hot, crispy, yuimmy Aloo Tikkis are now ready to serve. Serve them with coriander-mint chutney or with tomato ketchup. You can also slightly toast burger buns and stuff them with these aloo tikkis and serve.

  1. Aunty, thanks for the wonferful recipes you've been sharing - on this recipe, this comes out even better when you grate the boiled potatoes in place of mashing them, I got this tip from a tikki wala in Delhi while I sampled his ultra crisp and tasty tikki choley! Just thought I would share.

  2. Two full loaves of bread? Is there a mistake? Maybe you mean two slices. With two loaves, this 'aloo tikki' has much more bread than potatoes.

    1. Hi Thanks for mentioning. It a typo. I have corrected it now.
