Baked Aloo Tikki | Veggie Cutlets | Potato Patties

Wednesday, June 24, 2015
 We prefer eating healthier (almost !!) and try to make smart choices most of the time. If not me, at least Hubby dear is big time into eating whole foods and works out religiously. If there is no time for a full fledged work out session, he will atleast run and come. I also try to squeeze in some or the other form of physical activity whenever i find time. Offlate there has been too much going on the work front and since i have decided i won't abandon my blog anymore, that also accounts to some action. But hey, am not complaining!! Blogging gives me immense pleasure and i have something else to do apart from being in the IT Industry(Had it not been for the $$$, i would have qu(IT)....).

Every evening with tea, both of us need some thing to munch. There was almost nothing today and i thought of experimenting with baked patties/tikkis. Aloo tikki or Potato patties is a very famous Indian snack item and it is the tastiest when eaten from a roadside vendor..!!! Yes, they do some magic i believe. Now, the ones which we get outside is almost deep fried and there is no harm having them once in a while, but if we frequent it too often, its definitely not a good choice. I have recreated them by baking. I make this often with a mix of veggies and prefer baking them than frying. Trust me, once you make this, you are not going to fry'em again.

 Feel free to use vegetables of your choice. I have kept it traditional here by using just potatoes and green peas. If using cauliflower, make sure that you squeeze out the excess water else it gets very difficult to bind.


I have boiled and grated 4 medium sized potatoes. Do not mash, just grate, mashing becomes easier later on.

Add 1/2 cup of steamed green peas, 1/2 a chopped onion, 1 green chilli finely chopped, 1.5 tsp salt or as per your taste.

Add 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp crushed carom seeds(ajwain), 1 tsp crushed garlic, 1 tsp dry mango powder(amchur), 1 tsp chat masala, 1 tsp garam masala, few sprigs of finely chopped cilantro/corainder leaves.

Mash it well. I used fork because i do not have a potato masher yet! Now, preheat your oven at 425 F. Line a parchment paper and spread oil evenly.

Apply oil in your palm. Make balls out of the mixture and press it flat. Coat the patties with bread crumbs.

Arrange the patties in the baking sheet and bake for around 20-25 minutes or till golden brown. Flip them half way to other side.

Serve hot with tea, tomato sauce or green chutney. I prefer it plain with piping hot ginger tea.
