Aloo Tikki / Spicy Potato Patties


These are just about the easiest patties to put together. They make amazing appetizers when served with a combination of meetha chutney (tamarind and sugar),  green chutney (cilantro, green chilies and lime) and chole.



3 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
1 tsp corn flour
1/4 cup green peas, boiled
2 green chilies, chopped
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red chili powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp chopped mint leaves
pinch of asafoetida
refined vegetable oil for frying


  • Thoroughly mix all the ingredients except the oil.
  • Divide into 10 to 12 equal portions and shape them into flat patties
  • Heat oil in a fry pan and shallow fry over medium heat until golden brown and crisp on both sides.
  • Drain and pat dry on absorbent paper.
  • Serve hot with chutneys and chole.

      I actually put it in the oven in broil mode for 5-10 mins each side.
