2 Large potatoes boiled and mashed ( not too fine )
1/2 Cup boiled peas
1.5 Tbsp finely chopped coriander
2 Green/red chillies finely chopped
1/2 Ttsp Kashmiri chilli powder
2 Ttsp lemon juice
1/2 Tsp roasted cumin powder
1/2 Tsp chat masala
Salt to taste
1/4 Cup bread crumbs for coating
Oil to fry tikkis
Aloo tikki preparation:
Place all the ingredients ( with the exception of the oil and breadcrumbs ) into a bowl and mix until all combined.
This mixture will make about 8 tikki's so form about 8 balls with your fingers and then flatten to make tikki shapes, roll gently into the breadcrumbs to cover and on a medium heat fry gently after drizzling on a little oil to each side. When they are golden brown serve with mint, green or tamarind chutney.
I made these yesterday and coated them in breadcrumbs - yup they were really good, the photo above was from today where I coated them in polenta - they were much better, nice and crunchy and much easier to fry!
