Aloo Ki Tikki

You can use these delicious potato cutlets as a base to build a number of recipes or even have them just like that with some chaat masala sprinkled over it. An aloo ki tikki is known by different names and has some variations across the country, but is basically a shallow fried boiled mashed potato patty – sometimes stuffed with a filling. One of my favourite ways to eat aloo ki tikki is in a ragda pattice or tikki chaat.
