For Serving:


  1. Prepare the Mint Chutney:
    • In a blender or food processor, combine mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chili, cumin powder, lemon juice, salt, and a splash of water.
    • Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency. Adjust the water quantity to achieve your desired consistency. Transfer the chutney to a bowl and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Aloo Tikki:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the boiled and mashed potatoes, finely chopped onions, green chili, ginger paste, coriander leaves, cumin powder, red chili powder, garam masala, and salt.
    • Mix well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
    • If the mixture feels too soft, add cornflour to bind it together.
    • Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into round, flat patties.
    • Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
    • Carefully place the aloo tikki in the pan and cook until golden brown on both sides.
    • Once cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
  3. Assemble and Serve:
    • On a serving plate, place the aloo tikkis.
    • Garnish with tamarind chutney, mint chutney, sliced onions, tomatoes, and sev, if desired.
    • Serve the aloo tikkis hot and enjoy them with your favorite beverage or as part of a meal.
  4. Tips and Variations:
    • You can add other vegetables like boiled peas or carrots to the potato mixture for added flavor and texture.
    • If you prefer a healthier version, you can bake the aloo tikkis in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for about 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
    • Experiment with different toppings such as yogurt, grated cheese, or even a drizzle of sweet and spicy sauces to customize the flavors to your liking.
    • If you're fond of spicy food, consider adding a pinch of chaat masala or red chili flakes to the mint chutney for an extra kick.
