Aloo Tikki

An all-time favourite snack that can be put together in no time. Preparing it on a tava (flat-pan) makes it healthier as well as hassle-free. It is so delicious, you won’t be able to eat just one!

Time: 20 minutes


Serves: Makes 12 tikkis

Save recipe


  1. 4 medium-sized potatoes (boiled, peeled & mashed)
  2. 1/2 cup boiled green peas
  3. 2 slices brown bread
  4. 11/2 teaspoons freshly ground ginger
  5. 11/2 teaspoons freshly ground green chillies or to taste
  6. 2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander leaves
  7. 2 tablespoons oil
  8. Salt to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for aloo tikki except bread and oil. Place the bread slices on a chopping board and get rid of the edges with the help of a knife. Dip the bread slices in water and squeeze them between your palms. Mash them into the aloo tikki mixture and mix well.
  2. Grease your palms with oil. Take a portion of aloo tikki mixture and shape it into a ball. Flatten it gently between your palms to give it the shape of a tikki. Repeat the same process to make tikkis from the remaining mixture.
  3. Heat a non-stick tava (flat-pan) and grease it with oil. Gently place the tikkis on the tava about 1 inch apart from each other so that they can be flipped easily when done from one side.
  4. Cook the tikkis on medium heat and flip them over carefully using a spatula when golden brown and crisp from one side. Add little oil and cook till the other side becomes crisp and golden brown as well.
  5. Serve hot with tea & green chutney.
