  • 5 medium potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 3 tbsp. cilantro chopped
  • ½ tsp. cayenne
  • ½ tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. chaat masala
  • ½ tsp. ginger finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. green chillies finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp. rice flour
  • 2 tsp. ghee or olive oil

For aloo tikki chaat

  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. green chutney
  • 1 tsp. roast cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. black salt
  • 1 tbsp. chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp. fine sev or aloo bhujia


  • Mash the potatoes and add chopped cilantro, cayenne, garam masala, chaat masala, ginger-chilli chopped and salt. Mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Add rice flour and mix well. Now form patties or aloo tikkis using your palms. Keep aside.

Air frying instructions:

  • Preheat Airfryer to 390F or 200C for 5 minutes.
  • Lightly brush the aloo tikkis or potato patties with ghee. Also brush the air fryer basket lightly with ghee. Now place the patties so that they are put in one layer.
  • Air fry for about 20 minutes. Flip the tikkis once in the middle.
  • If still not browned, air fry for 2-5 minutes more at 200C or 390F.
  • You will have golden brown and crispy tikkis ready. They are really delicious and taste great with just a little ghee used.
  • This recipe yields about 12 tikkis which I cooked in 2 batches.

Shallow frying instructions:

  • Heat a skillet or tawa. Take 2 tbsps. of ghee or oil and shallow fry about 5-6 aloo tikkis on both sides. It will take you about 3-4 minutes each side. Keep turning them till they are nice and brown. Your crispy tasty aloo tikkis are ready to eat. Use the same method to cook the remaining tikkis.
  • You can serve these tikkis as it is with green chutney or ketchup along with a garnish of chopped onions. These go very well with lemongrass tea.


1. You can cook potatoes so that they are well boiled and can mash easily.
2. Adjust seasoning as per taste.
3. Have hot aloo tikkis. They taste the best. In case, you wish to have later, then air fry once for about 10 minutes and later reheat for 4 minutes before serving.
4. Assemble aloo tikki chaat with hot tikkis.
