I used to eat varieties of Indian street food from the street venders when I was in India, but after coming to London, I started missing those delish badly. Though there are many Indian street food stalls in London, but they are not so conveniently available as in India. So, I started preparing deep fried stuffs, chaat recipes, chutneys at home. I have already tried plenty of chaat recipes with different combinations at home.

I started preparing deep fried stuffs like pakodas, samosa, tikki, chop etc. at home quite frequently after the COVID 19 lockdown state. Under these circumstances, we have all started craving for outside food, especially evening snacks item, ‘isn’t it’?? This period has made me realize that It is much healthier to prepare snacks item at home. Though these are deep fried items, but still you can maintain much more hygiene at home than a street stall. I serve my handmade Indian street food to the elders and kids of my family without a pinch of hesitation. A homemade snack is always an ideal treat for each member of the family.

Aloo tikki recipe with step by step photos and instructions have been provided in the ‘Instruction’ section of the recipe. If you follow each step of my recipe precisely then you will get the perfect aloo ki tikki with outer crisp. But before directly jumping into the recipe, let me share few interesting things about the recipe.

How to make Aloo Chaat?

To prepare the aloo tikki, first I have washed the potatoes and pressure cooked them in enough water till two whistles in medium flame and allowed the pressure to settle down. Then I have peeled the skin of the potatoes. You can boil the potatoes in a pan too with lid till al dente. You can peel the skin too before boiling. It’s completely your own choice how you are going to boil the potatoes. The main concern is to cook them perfectly.

It is very important part of the aloo tikki recipe to boil the potatoes perfectly. If you overcook the potatoes, then the potatoes will get filled with too much moisture and your tikkis may break or cracks may occur during the time of frying. On the other hand, if you undercook the potatoes then lumps may get formed while mashing the potatoes which can spoil the texture of the whole dish.

To get the perfect outer crisp it is very important to add a binding agent into the boiled potatoes. Many people use different binding agents according to their own preferences like corn flour, all-purpose flour, breadcrumbs, poha or flattened rice, rice flour etc.

For the aloo ki tikki, I personally recommend using rice flour because it gives perfect outer crisp and it remains crispy for a longer time. Rice flour is a super handy and perfect binding agent for alu tikki. It is used lesser in quantity and does not reduce the density of potato from the aloo patty.

Aloo Patty is spicy flavoured Indian patty recipe in which generous amount of spices and herbs are used. I have added chopped coriander leaves, ginger paste, red chilli powder, chaat masala, rock salt, garam masala powder, black pepper powder for flavouring of aloo tikkis.

I have added freshly squeezed lemon juice too with the seasoning for a perfect refreshing taste.

Then I have combined all the ingredients nicely and prepared a smooth lumps free dough. After this, I divided them in equal portions and made flat round disc shapes with the help of my palms.

To make the healthier version of aloo ki tikki, I have taken a wide heavy bottom non-stick pan and shallow fried the tikkis over medium flame. In this way the tikkis absorb less oil without compromising its taste. Usually in street stalls, vendors deep fry the tikkis for the sake of saving time and to get an extra crisp.

Why aloo tikki breaks while frying

The main reason behind the aloo tikkis breaking while frying is the moisture in the potatoes. If the potatoes get over cooked and addition of binding agent is not enough then the tikkis may break or cracks may occur on the edges of Aloo ki tikki.

If you are planning to deep fry the potatoes, then make sure the oil is hot before adding the tikkis into the oil for frying. If the oil is not hot enough then the tikkis may break too.

Aloo tikki for fast

Many people in north india prepare aloo tikki for fast. During fast you can use buckwheat flour, tapioca flour or arrowroot as binding agent instead of rice flour and use rock salt instead of regular salt for the recipe.

Aloo tikki frozen

After shaping the aloo tikki, place them on a plate and refrigerate them for an hour. Then transfer them in zip lock packets and freeze them. In this way, you can store the aloo tikkis for a couple of months. But make sure to thaw them completely before frying.
