Aloo Tikki is a delicious quick snack option which you would like to prepare for weekend evenings when your family is at home and you would want to quickly make a no-fuss snack and spend some time with them over a cup of tea.
The Oven version of the dish is healthier as it requires quite less amount of Oil (total around 1 tbsp). We have used two different modes of Oven in the Recipe-Microwave for Boiling the Potatoes and Grill for making Tikkis.
The Potatoes are pierced with a fork and cooked in Microwave on High Power for 6 mins in a closed Microwave safe bowl. Allow it to cool down completely before it is peeled. The peeled and mashed Potatoes are then mixed with spices and mixed to form flavorful mixture. The mixture is subtly flavored with Garam Masala and Chili Powder. It is then shaped into flat disc shaped Tikkis of even thickness. The thickness must be uniform so that all the Tikkis get uniformly cooked in the stipulated time.
We have kept the Tikkis in an Oven safe Tawa. If you like to see your Tikkis with grill mark on them, then directly place it on High rack and then grill
You can serve this Tikkis with some Ragda and make yourself Mumbai style Ragda Pattice
We have also made another version of Tikkis, a little more elaborate than this Version-Stuffed Aloo Tikki.
