I’ve been Aloo Tikki since my childhood and I rely don’t mean to astonish you but yes it has been this recipe since my 25 years of existence, I can just say that it is solely and wholely dedicated to my grand father so making this recipe was very emotional to me as its his blessing that I was able to learn so much about cooking at such an early age … well yes this recipe has been developed and evolved a little bit over time but yes it is the crispiest…. Enjoy (‘’,)


Ingredients To Make Aloo Tikki:

500 gms Boiled Potatoes

125 Gms / 1.25 cups of Activated Poha/Rice Flakes

4 Tbsp Rice Flour


Ingredients To Make Stuffing:

½ Cup Chana Dal / Bengal Gram Split and Skinned

¼ Cup Peas

2 Green Chilles Chopped

1 tsp Ginger Chopped

1 Tbsp Chopped Cilantro

Pinch of Asafoetida / Hing

½ tsp Whole Cumin / Jeera

***Masala Mix


Ingredients To Make Masala Mix:


1 tsp Red Chilli Powder

½ tsp Coriander / Dhaniya Powder

1.5 tsp Mango / Amchur powder

½ tsp Garam Masala

½ tsp Salt

¼ tsp Rock Salt / Kala Namak





Key Points:

  • Do not add any salt in potato mix
  • Use the right starch and binder
  • Don’t forget to activate Rice flakes (add 1/4th cup water to 1 cup Rice Flakes)
  • Oil your hands properly while stuffing the patties

    Hi Bharat,
    I like the way you explain every recipe. But i am very much health conscious can you give alternative to deep frying of many vegetarian recipe. I am pure vegetarian and would like to try all the recipe provided they are not deep-fried. I tried garlic bread stick and they came out yummy. Waiting for alternates …:)
    Thank you

    Hi could not wait for yr reply so I tried d tikki . I let d potatoes stay at room temp after taking out of d fridge. It was Gud but very oily , or is it supposed to be very oily as it was being slow fried in oil.
    My husband said hey it’s like Delhi ka aloo tikki. Thanx once again n eagerly waiting for yr reply n d eggless version of cake n brownies recepe.
