aloo tikki burger recipe with step by step photos – all my indian readers surely know of the well known mc donald’s aloo tikki burger. well this post is not trying to replicate the mc donald’s aloo tikki burger recipe, but a north indian street food that is often sold on the streets of delhi and gurgaon.

aloo tikki burger

i remember me and hubby loved to gorge on these aloo tikki burgers so much, that we would often go to this street vendor making these near our home in delhi and have the aloo tikkis served warm to us sandwiched in between the buns with the butter, chutneys & sliced veggies. the warm burgers along with dahi papdi chaat would be our evening snack.

so this recipe of aloo tikki burger comes very close to the ones served by street food vendors. here i have made the recipe more healthy by using home made whole wheat buns and addition of lettuce & cucumber.

also i have not fried the potato patties in too much oil. when street food snacks are made at home, you can make them very healthy for your family and still enjoy the deliciousness.

aloo tikki burger recipe

to make these burgers, you can make the chutneys a night before and store in the fridge. the whole wheat buns can be homemade or readymade. these are a bit dense buns, hence am not posting the recipe.

if lettuce leaves are not available, then add blanched cabbage leaves. you can also add grated carrots and beetroot as a topping on the patties. its best to use both the sweet tamarind dates chutney and coriander chutney. but one kind of chutney will also do. i did not have the sweet chaat chutney, hence just made the coriander chutney.

if you want you can even make some french fries and serve with the burgers. after all we are so used to having french fries with burgers accompanied with a tomato sauce. for a healthier option bake or roast the french fries.

if you don’t have onions, then just avoid adding the onions in the burger toppings. this aloo tikki or potato patties is a slightly different version, than the aloo tikki, i had previously posted. you can use this recipe or the other one posted before. both are equally good.

step by step aloo tikki burger recipe – north indian style:

1: peel and mash the boiled potatoes with a potato masher or with the back of a wooden spoon or a fork. do this when the potatoes are still warm. its easier to mash them when they are hot or warm.

2: add all the spice powders and salt. mix well.

3: add rice flour or corn starch. i have used rice flour.

4: mix well.

5: shape into flat round patties.

6: heat some a tbsp of oil on a flat tava or frying pan. place the potato tikkis on the pan.

7: whilst the patties or tikkis are frying, slice the onions, tomatoes, cucumber.

8: here are the tikkis browned and crisp from both sides.

9: place the tikkis towards the edge of the pan, so that they are still warm. smear some oil in the center and lightly roast the sliced bread buns.

10: apply the mint-coriander or coriander chutney on one side.

11: place the aloo tikki on this slice.

12: top with the sliced onions, tomatoes and cucumber.

13: sprinkle some chaat masala.

14: place the lettuce.

15: apply the chutney again on the other slice. if you have sweet chaat chutney, you can apply this chutney on the other slice. another variation is to apply both the chutneys on both the slices along with some butter.

16: cover the bun to make a delicious burger. insert a tooth pick in the center of the burger. you can also place a glazed cherry inserted in the tooth pic in the center.

17: make all aloo tikki burgers this way. serve aloo tikki burger with tomato sauce and some coriander chutney or sweet chaat chutney by the side… whatever you prefer.

  5. Hi Dassana,
    I tried the aloo tikki burger today and it turned out wonderful!! 🙂 Although, I couldn’t find the dates for tamarind and dates chutney, I just made without them.
    Thank you so much for posting it 🙂 🙂

  6. I learned recently how easy veggie burgers are to make! I actually like them better than store bought. Those also look simple to make and delicious.

  7. I was seriously very well and I appreciate u Dassana for this recipe It was yummier than I thought it would be thanks

  8. Very simple and nice recipe, But i think instead or frying buns on tava i would prefer deep fry with planty of oil it sounds unhelthy but bleave me it is not. Actually it will increase the taste tremendously. And please don’t cut the buns in two half before frying. Thank you.

    • i know frying buns gives a nice taste and texture. in fact when we made burgers first time in our cooking practicals in college, we fried the buns in oil. but we has sliced the buns and then fried them. the burgers that we made that day were yummy, not to mention the amount of fat they had 🙂
