Aloo Tikki (Potato Burger)

 

Aloo tikki or aloo ki tikki is a simple mashed potato patty that has been fried. It’s often eaten in sandwich form in India and called aloo tikki burger. In fact, if you see a sign on a small shop that says “burgers available here”, they doubtless mean this popular potato burger.

Aloo tikki is really just a fancy Hindi way of saying fried mashed potatoes. :) Which, clearly, is something you need in your life.

 

If you visit India you’ll find aloo tikki sold all over the place and they’re most commonly eaten in burger form or with various chutneys. They’re super cheap and quite tasty. Make sure you try some if you’re traveling in India.

    Sounds wonderful … would you ever put a little curry powder in the mixture?

    • I’ve come to really appreciate coriander powder since visiting India. It’s used in pretty much everything. You can really add whatever spices and seasonings you want to these though, they’re kind of like a blank canvas.

  4. One of my favourites, but have you tried them with a sprinkling of diced onions, coriander and sweet and sour sauces.

  5. Jessica, Your Aloo Tiki burger looks amazing. I can’t wait to try it.

  6. I’ve never tried an Aloo Tiki burger. Sounds really good.
