Aloo Tikki needs no introduction from my side.It's a common snack in northern part of India.When being served with channa masala,it's a complete meal in itself where as with tomato sauce,it can be a delicious snack ! Aloo tikki is the spiced potato mash,fried and then served hot .So, to prepare the spice mix,which invariably decides the flavour and taste of tikki,you may have to personalize it to your taste.This one is my version,which we thoroughly enjoy here !
This is my third day entry for Blogging Marathon Mini Bites series.Do check what my other friends are serving too !
1 cup,boiled and mashed/grated potatoes
1 tbsp cornflour
few bread crumbs
2 green chillies,chopped
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
pinch of garam masala
handful of chopped coriander
2 tsp lime juice
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except oil.It's always good to use your hand.Now make lemon sized balls of the mixture and flatten to small discs.This can be done in your palm.Heat oil in a medium skillet and shallow fry the discs in medium heat till they turn golden brown and crispy outside.Do the same with other side.Shift them to a paper towel.Serve with tomato sauce or chickpeas curry.
