aloo tikki recipe, how to make aloo tikki recipe | potato patties recipe

aloo tikki recipe with step by step photos – alu pattice or potato tikki is a very popular snack all over india.

in north india, aloo tikki is usually served with chole (spicy chickpea curry), garnished with onions, a sweet tamarind-jaggery chutney and hot green chutney made from green chillies and coriander. the aloo tikkis of north india are usually stuffed with a spiced filling of peas and paneer or chana dal. this recipe does not have any stuffing.

in western india, aloo tikki is known as aloo pattice or aloo patties. the method of making them is same but the spices and the stuffing added in them differs, according to the region. alu pattice is usually not stuffed with any filling. in mumbai it is not served with chole but with ragda (white peas curry) and is also known as ragda pattice.

i always add a binding agent while preparing aloo tikkis. it helps to keep the tikkis in shape and they do not crumble while frying. i have used corn starch, rice flour, bread and even arrow root flour as a binding agent on various occasions. all of them work well. just remember that when you add corn starch, the potato has to be cooled down completely. otherwise the mixture becomes sticky, if corn starch is added to hot or warm potatoes.

if you have leftover bread, then you soak the bread in water. squeeze out the water completely and then add this bread to the potatoes. here bread is added as a binding agent. you can also coat the tikkis with breadcrumbs before frying. this makes the tikkis more crisp. as a variation you can also add cooked green peas to the tikkis. you can also have a look at these tikki recipes – aloo paneer tikki and sindhi aloo tikki.

if making aloo tikkis for fasting, then add arrowroot flour or buckwheat flour or water chestnut flour or sago flour. also add rock salt, instead of regular salt.

i usually prepare aloo tikki, if i plan to serve them with punjabi chole or make a chaat from them. on occasions i just serve them plain with a raita or a chutney. aloo tikki make for a good evening tea time snack. its best to serve them hot.
