Aloo Tikki

I haven’t been here for a while! London life is so busy, not enough hours in a day….  I have decided to post a recipe, learnt in an Indian cookery class I took with Chef Salim from Pardes. These aloo tikkis are utterly delicious, easy to make, fragrant and fantastic as a starter or a snack. This is his recipe.

Aloo tikki
(makes 8 pieces)
500 g potato boiled potato
2 carrots grated
100 g green peas (frozen is fine)
2 onions chopped finely
10 g fresh coriander leaves chopped finely
1 green chilli very finely chopped
half teaspoon cumin seeds
half teaspoon fennel seeds
half teaspoon salt
half teaspoon chat masala
50g cornflower
Mix all the ingredients including the spices together in a large bowl.  Take a small handful of the mixture and shape in to a patty the size of a golf ball, flatten the ball in to a burger shape.
In a medium size non-stick frying pan, heat 100g sunflower oil and fry each patty until golden brown.

  1. Olá! Chat masala? Pode ser substituído? Ou eliminado? 🙂

    • Ola Cecilia!

      O chat masala e muito importante neste prato porque lhe confere o sabor tipico deste tipo de snack indiano, muito popular nas ruas de Delhi e nos pic-nics familiares. Se nao encontrar chat masala em Portugal, use garam masala que e mais facil de adquirir em supermercados.

      Uma abraco,


  2. Ok , Miguel! Tenho garam masala e vou experimentar… Depois conto!

  3. Sorry… should I boil te peas before mixing?

  4. Hi! It’s me again… What kind of sauce did you use with these Aloo Tikki?
