  • 3 nos. Potatoes (Aloo) boiled and mashed
  • 2 Green Chili finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Rice Flour
  • 1 tbsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Chaat Masala
  • 2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 5 gms Coriander Leaves finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp Oil
  • Salt as per taste


  • STEP 1)Clean the Potatoes thoroughly and boil them in a pressure cooker for up to 4-5 whistles. (It may depend on the brand of pressure cooker you use in your kitchen.) STEP 2)Once the Potatoes are done, let them cool down for some time. Peel the Potatoes and mash them nicely for the Tikki mixture. Make sure there are no small pieces in them. STEP 3)Now, add the Rice Flour, Garam Masala, Chaat Masala, Ginger Garlic Paste, Coriander Leaves, and Salt to the mashed Potatoes. STEP 4)Mix all the ingredients using your hands. STEP 5)Make small balls of this mixture and shape them into medium-sized Tikkis. You can also use the cookie cutters to get the perfect shapes. Switch on the flame and put the Tawa (flat base) on it. STEP 6)Once the Tawa is hot enough, add the Oil and shallow-fry your Aloo Tikkis on low-medium flame. Don’t forget to flip them a couple of times to get the perfect crunchy texture. STEP 7)Serve the Tikkis with Chaat Chutneys or any choice of your sauces.


You can add more Rice Flour if you can’t form the Tikki properly. However, don’t forget to check the taste of Tikki mixture before frying them in the pan.
