Aloo Tikki is a common street food found on almost every street stall in Pakistan and India. The name aloo tikki comes from the fact that aloo is potato in Urdu and tikki are patties. So, aloo tikki are basically spiced Indian potato patties and hands up everyone who loves a bit of spice in their life? My hand is definitely up there!
You could say that these spiced potato fitters are to Indians and Pakistanis what the chip is to the British people. Any Pakistani or Indian who says that they don’t like aloo tikki has basically renounced their heritage. A bit far-fetched, but I think you get the idea as to how well-loved these and how close to home this recipe is for me.
This crispy famous Indian street food is easy to cook involves being shallow fried. All the ingredients are easily found and there are no exotic spices used so you can easily prepare this in your kitchen at home.
A good tip for making round aloo tikki is to leave the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes as not only does this allow the flavours to develop but it allows you to shape the potato patties much better.
Aloo tikki can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways. Personally, I love to have aloo tikki with chaat or my homemade yoghurt chutney, but these potato snacks taste great with every kind of condiment from tamarind sauce to tomato ketchup. You can even transfer this aloo tikki recipe into lunch by buttering and toasting a bun then adding the potato patty in the middle. Your own homemade aloo tikki burger!
