Aloo tikki, or spiced potato fritters, are to northern Indian what fish and chips is to Britain and Australia. A near ubiquitious street food, best served hot, crispy, and satisfying salty. Substitute ketchup for chutney, and a banana leaf for a twist and it’s a perfect match. Though it must be admitted that aloo tikki is a bit more sophisticated.
Crispy Aloo Tikki is a popular street food chaat in India that can be made in a variety of ways. Any way you prepare these tikkis, they are sure to turn out great! They taste especially delicious with mint chutney, or cilantro chutney, tamarind chutney. One of our favorite toppings is minced jalepeno peppers or spiced chola (this recipe for crispy aloo tikki is with spicy chola topping).
