Aloo tikki chaat recipe with step by step pics. Aloo tikki chaat is super delicious chatpata dish. In aloo tikki chaat fried potato patties are topped with a tangy-sweet tamarind chutney and spicy green chutney along with curd (yogurt). Some variations also add pomegranate arils or sev on top. The recipe I am sharing is Delhi style and thus I have not added sev, onions or papdi.

This is one of the simplest chaat you can make and does not need any cooking expertise. Yes you do need to have the sweet chutney as well as green chutney ready. Making aloo tikki is easy and then assembling the chaat is super easy.

This aloo tikki chaat recipe is on the healthier side as I have not shallow fried or deep fried aloo tikki. Generally street style aloo tikki is fried in copious amounts of oil. Here I have used 1.5 tablespoons oil for frying each batch of 5 aloo tikki. The recipe yeilds about 10 medium sized aloo tikki. Number of aloo tikki will vary depending on the size.

Aloo tikki is a favorite street food snack from north India. Besides having them plain, there are many chaat snacks you can make with aloo tikki like:

I kept the recipe of aloo tikki chaat simple and not stuffed them with any filling. Though you can add some spiced boiled green peas stuffing or cooked chana dal stuffing. Even a stuffing of grated paneer or chopped dry fruits can be added.

In this post I have shared aloo tikki recipe in the step by step pics and the assembling part. For the chutneys you can refer to the following recipe links:

  • Green chutney for chaat – spiced chutney with coriander leaves. Or you can also use coriander chutney or mint coriander chutney.
  • Imli chutney (sweet chutney) or you can use sweet chutney.

Serve aloo tikki chaat as soon as you make them.

How to make aloo tikki chaat

1. Rinse and then take 4 medium potatoes in a 2 litre pressure cooker. Also add ½ teaspoon salt. Add enough water just about covering the potatoes. Pressure cook for 4 to 5 whistles on medium flame or till the potatoes are softened and of a mashable consistency.

  1. Love the recipe… I need to make a big batch for guests. Could I make the tikkies the previous night and fry them next morning to save time? How long would they remain fresh?5 stars

    1. yes you can do this way. you can even freeze them. if you keep in the refrigerator, then 1 to 2 days is fine.
      and thank you.

  2. I love your recipes, but am sad that your android app is no longer working or available? when do you come back on the app? using an app is far easier on the phone in the kitchen

    1. thanks for your positive feedback on recipes. we could not manage the app so we had to delete it. it was a tough decision for us.
