  • Four-Five medium potatoes
  • One small onion cut into very fine slices
  • 7-8 fresh coriander sprigs well chopped
  • Two teaspoons grated ginger or ginger paste
  • Very finely chopped green chilli (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Breadcrumbs
  • One egg
  • Cooking oil


  • One teaspoon ground cumin
  • Half teaspoon garam masala
  • Half teaspoon ground black pepper
  • One teaspoon chat masala


  • Boil the potatoes and let them cool. Once the potatoes are cooled, peel and mash them using a potato masher.
  • In a frying pan add a little amount of oil and fry the chopped onion. When they are golden brown, remove them from the pan and reserve them.
  • In a large bowl add the mashed potatoes, ginger paste, green chilli, chopped coriander leaves, the ground spices, fried onion, and salt. Mix everything well.
  • Take small portions of the mixture and give it a flattened ball size (see pictures). Dip them in beaten egg and pass through breadcrumbs.
  • Put a pot on medium-high heat with plenty of oil. Once the oil is hot, drop one aloo Tikki. When it starts to get a little bit of colour, flip over and then drop the second one. This ensures that they do not break.
  • Fry them until become nice golden-brown colour. Put them on a plate with kitchen paper, serve them hot with Sriracha sauce or with Ketchup.


Tips and Tricks

  • The chat masala has salt, so when adding the salt must be careful.
