paneer tikki is a very popular indian dish. the indian tikki is same as the western patty that is  used in burgers. it is just that the ingredients that are used are different.

in north india, aloo tikki is served as a chaat, commonly known aloo tikki chole chaat. here the aloo tikki is served with punjabi chole and topped with curd, sweet chutney and green chutney. you could have aloo tikki plain or even with tomato sauce and bread. it can be had as a breakfast, brunch or an evening snack.

tips for making aloo paneer tikkis:

  • adding salt in the aloo when boiling them, makes sure that the salt seeps into the aloo.
  • the aloo have to be really boiled well. to check if they are boiled properly, insert a fork or a knife in a potato. if the fork passes smoothly, it shows that the potato are cooked. if not, then you may need to boil for some more time.
  • for easy mashing, grate the aloo. when you grate the aloo, it becomes easier to mash them. you could also use a food processor to mash the aloo.
  • for binding, i have used cornflour. but one can also use soaked bread, maida (all purpose flour), buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta) or even water-chestnut flour (singhare ka atta).
  • if you have leftover boiled potatoes, you can use them.
