Aloo tikki burger recipe with step by step photos. Crisp golden potato patties sandwiched in burger buns and then topped with veggies and spiced with chutneys.

aloo tikki burger

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.

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 tikki 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 homemade 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.

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. It is 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 I 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 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.

How to make aloo tikki burger

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.
