Aloo Tikki

North India, to be exact. I don’t know much about it, but I think I like it. And if this Aloo Tikka is served as street food as it’s rumored, then North India seems like the next best stop for me on our summer travels.

Think of aloo tikki as delicious Indian potato fritters. These appetizers or snacks are made with mashed potatoes and a variety of spices, formed into patties, then fried in oil. You’ll find them sold on the streets of Northern India and on the menu of your local takeout.

Aloo Tikki – an Indian street food made with fried potatoes, peas, and onions that can be easily made at home. Soooo delicious!

Ingredients

  • 3 large potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas (uncooked)
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tbs. grated ginger
  • 1 handful fresh parsley or cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbs. bread crumbs (I used panko)
  • 4 tbs. flour

Methods

  1. Once the potatoes have been boiled and mashed, add in all the other ingredients.
  2. Form into patties (you should be able to get 8 large patties or 10 smaller ones).
  3. Heat a little oil over medium-high heat and fry a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain and cool on paper towels.
  4. Serve with any kind of sauce you like (I served it with a cottage/ricotta cheese mixture, but I imagine this would be delicious with some kind of chutney)!

 

Indian Chef
I'm a food blogger, food photographer and organic gardener based out of India. I enjoy cooking for my family using fresh produce from my vegetable garden. I love to try out various cuisines and perfect my cooking skills. I've always loved writing, so writing is something that I've always done. Food, on the other hand was something I definitely grew into. As a kid, I was the pickiest eater you could imagine. But eventually food started tasting good to me and it became something that I associate deeply with happy memories. My food blog Indian Food Pedia is a humble attempt at sharing my passion for all things food and you will definitely find a lot of Andhra flavor in this space, home-cooked meals I prepare for my family using farm fresh produce from my organic garden and our nearest farmer’s market. I have no formal training in food photography. Taking images of food is a learning process, a creative outlet for me and an enjoyable one at that.
