Aloo Tikki Recipe

Aloo Tikki Recipe
Aloo Tikki is a popular North Indian street food, there are so many chaat recipes which uses aloo tikki as base. I make veg cutlet often for mittu as thats one of the few ways I sneak in veggies for her, and to me aloo tikki sounded like a simplified version of veg cutlet :)

I saw a aloo tikki recipe with chana dal filling but I wanted to make a simple aloo tikki this time as I planned for a chaat recipe(coming soon) using the tikkis. I have tasted aloo tikki few times and the best one I liked is at Agarwals, guess they use ghee for toasting and it tastes yum...yes thats a sinful indulgence:)

Weather here is demanding some hot fried snacks and this one fitted the bill aptly...I just clicked them today but couldnt wait to share the recipe so here I am with the aloo tikki recipe.

You can serve it with sweet and green chutney or with just tomato ketchup, either ways it tastes yum , but my vote is for sweet chutney :)
