Aloo Tikkis

Tikkis, an ubiquitous street side food in North India and a hot favorite... are so simple and easy to make but taste real good. Also, most of the ingredients are what we have at home so these can be made at a moment's notice and are perfect for a quick tea-time snack.


Potatoes - 2, boiled, peeled and mashed
Green Peas - 1/2 cup, cooked and mashed coarsely
Green chillies - 1 tbsp, chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp, chopped
Ginger - 2 tsp, chopped
Chilli powder - 1/2 to 1 tsp
Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Cornflour - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - to shallow fry


1) Mix all the ingredients above (except oil). Divide this into several portions. and shape each portion into a tikki.

2) Shallow fry these (or deep fry, if you so prefer) until golden brown on either side. Serve with ketchup.

    Rajitha - I know... every once in a while I crave all things Chaat.
