Aloo tikki is a famous street food of India. Aloo Tikki cutlets/Patties/tikkis are made of potatoes with aromatic Indian spices, garnished with oregano seasoning.

Spicy Aloo tikki is crisp from the outside and soft from the inside. It tastes wonderful when served with Mint chutney and Tamarind chutney.

Aloo tikki is a north Indian snack made of potatoes and aromatic spices. You will find it in every corner of north India. It is served with delicious Indian chutney and chickpeas curry.

In India, these tikkis are also served in a bun topped with onion and tomato. If you are looking for a quick snack then it is a perfect recipe for you with easy to follow steps.

They are generally deep fried, but I have made it in less oil on a non-stick pan. It can be served as an appetizer, snack or for breakfast.

These tikkis are also known as patties or cutlets. You can also make it nutritious by adding different vegetables like carrot, cauliflower or cottage cheese.  It is popular among kids too.

You can pack this for their Tiffin and can also sandwich it in a whole wheat bread.

These patties are used in lot of Indian recipes like Aloo tikki chole chaat and Indian style veggie burger.  It can also be served in a nice soft hot dog bun and can be served with barbecue sauce.

You can also serve these cutlets as a party snack, as an evening snack with a cup of tea or packed for picnics and short trips.  These tikkis are crunchy and crispy and easy to cook.

In India, there are many street vendors who use it as a base of Indian chaats.  These can be prepared in different shapes. You can give it a shape of a roll or a cutlet or can keep classic round shape.
