Aloo Tikki


Potatoes: 3-4 medium sized, boiled and peeled

Salt: As per taste

Black pepper: ½ tsp

For stuffing
Green peas: ½ cup, cooked well

Ginger: ½ tsp minced

Garam masala: ¼ tsp

Salt: As per taste

Red chili powder: ¼ tsp

Cumin: 1tsp, dry roasted, coarsely grounded

Oil: For frying


Mash the cooked green peas. Add all the stuffing ingredients except oil and mash well. Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions and keep aside. Mash the potatoes very finely and add salt and pepper and knead until properly mixed. Divide it also into 10 equal portions. Rub your palms with little oil.  Take each portion of potato mixture and make a ball. Taking one at a time, gently flatten each ball into a round patty of about 1/2-inch thick and place a portion of stuffing in the centre and fold the edges together very finely so that the mixture does not come out. Very gently flatten the stuffed ball into a 2-inch patty. Repeat the procedure for all pieces. Heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick pan. Slip in the patties and pan-fry on both sides till crisp golden brown, adding oil if required, on a very low heat. Serve tikkis with tomato sauce or mint chutney.
