Aloo Tikki is a very popular street food that is made from potatoes, spices and coriander and is served fresh with spicy coriander, mint and sweet chutney. With the popularity of the Western food gaining momentum, the humble tikki received an uplift by combining it with the burger, thus, giving birth to Aloo Tikki Burger. The traditional street or dhaba style version of making the tikki involves mixing mashed potatoes, along with green peas, spices and coriander leaves and deep fried to get that crisp golden crust.
Aloo Tikki Burger is quite easy to make at home and involves everyday ingredients. If you can’t lay your hands on the burger buns, they can easily be substituted with bread slices and made into sandwiches. Slather the bun with Mayo and combine the Aloo Tikki with fresh lettuce leaves, slices of tomatoes and onions. Voila, the Aloo Tikki Burger is ready.
