Potato Patties

Potato Patties or Aloo Tikki are the most popular snack dish in India, these patties are traditionally made with Boiled Potatoes and flavorful Spices. It’s a famous Chaat dish of road side vendors, where the aroma of the hot tikkis are enough to make you hungry.

In North India, these Potato Patties are generally served with Chole (spicy chickpea curry), garnished with onions, sweet Tamarind-Jaggery Chutney and hot Green Chutney made from green chillies and coriander.

The Potato Patties of North India are usually stuffed with the spiced filling of peas & paneer or chana dal, and hence I added boiled Chana Dal in my patties. Chana Dal helps in binding the patties, also gives a wonderful taste to them.Potato Patties

Aloo Patties can be served simply with Green Chutney and Bread Slices as an Evening Snack. I always add a binding agent while preparing Aloo Tikkis, it helps to keep the tikkis in shape and they do not crumble while frying. I always use different binding agents, such as corn starch, rice flour, bread crumbs and even arrow root flour as a binding agent on various occasions, all of them work well.
