â€‹Aloo TikkiÂ is one of the popular snacks, not only in India but also in neighbouring countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh etc. It is a delicious snacks made of boiled mashed potatoes and spices. There are different ways of making aloo tikki, one is stuffing channa dal and the other is simply patty which is quick and easy to make. Tikkis can be deep fried, pan fried or shallow fried.Â Here is an innovative recipe of Aloo Tikki â€“Aloo Poha Tikki. I have used poha (flatten rice) and made the recipe more interesting and delicious. The potatoes are boiled and mashed, then mixed with spices and made into tikkis. The tikkis are then coated in poha(flatten rice) and deep fried in oil.
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Potato - 2 large
Green Chilly - 1 finely chopped
Turmeric powder â€“ Â¼ tsp
Chilly powder â€“ Â½ tsp
Garam masala powder â€“ Â½ tsp
Coriander powder â€“ Â¼ tsp
Cumin powder â€“ Â¼ tsp
Amchur powder â€“ A pinch
Few coriander leaves chopped
Salt to taste
Cornflour or All Purpose Flour â€“ 2 tsp
Poha (flatten rice) â€“ 1 cup or as required
Water as required
Oil for deep frying
Peel the potatoes, cut them into cubes and pressure cook them in less water for 2 whistles. Drain and mash them and keep aside.
Heat a tsp of oil in a pan. Add the onion and green chillies and saute till onion turns soft.
Add the masala powders and mix well.
Add the mashed potatoes and chopped coriander leaves and mix and incorporate them well. Take off the heat and let it cool down.
In a mixing bowl add the flour and required water and make a lumps free thin batter.
Spread the poha (flatten rice) in a plate.
Heat the oil for deep frying. Take a portion of potato mixture and make a ball.
Slight flatten the ball into a round disc and deep them into the flour batter and coat them in the poha.
When the oil is hot, reduce the heat and drop the tikkis in the oil and fry in medium heat till golden and crisp.
Remove them in an absorbent paper and serve with any chutney or dipping of your choice.
I have deep fried the tikki but you can shallow fry them as per your preference.
