What is aloo tikki?
Aloo (potato) tikki (patty) forms the base of this aloo tikki burger. Crispy patties with the perfect combination of potatoes, spices and herbs is a quintessential Indian street snack. The recipe starts with making the patty mixture. Just combine all the ingredients – mashed potatoes, onions, coriander (cilantro) leaves, ground turmeric, ground cumin, chat masala, red chili powder, salt and pepper – in a bowl. Don’t forget the binding agent – breadcrumbs or soaked bread. Once all the ingredients are combined, make round patties from the mixture. Roll them in breadcrumbs and fry until golden on both sides. I’ve opted for shallow frying the patties, but you can deep fry them if you like.
How to Make Aloo Tikki Burger
Once the aloo tikkis are ready, start assembling the burger. As I mentioned, we are going to layer it with all the beautiful extra flavorful ingredients. In short, this burger is spicy, buttery, and layered with crunchy onions and juicy tomatoes. Before we start assembling, I like to toast the burger buns in a pan with a special touch of butter. That way, you’ll get crispy and brown buttery buns adding another layer of flavor.
To assemble the burger, spread a little chili mayo on the toasted buns. If chili mayo is not easily available, add a couple of teaspoons of sriracha sauce to regular mayo. Top the base bun with aloo tikki, onion, tomatoes and the top bun. Done!
