Serves: 4

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Total time: 45 minutes



  • 600g potatoes, boiled and mashed

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

  • 50g green peas, boiled

  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 1 tsp mustard seeds

  • 1 tsp garam masala

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • Salt, to taste

  • 4 tbsp chickpea flour (besan)

  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • Oil, for frying



  1. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, chopped onion, green chillies, red bell pepper, and boiled peas. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

  2. Add the chopped coriander, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, garam masala, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, and salt to the mixture. Stir until all the spices are well incorporated.

  3. Gradually add the chickpea flour and breadcrumbs to the mixture, stirring continuously to form a firm dough. The mixture should hold its shape when formed into patties. If it is too wet, add a bit more chickpea flour or breadcrumbs.

  4. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a round patty about 1.5cm thick.

  5. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully place the patties into the pan, ensuring not to overcrowd them. Fry in batches if necessary.

  6. Cook the patties for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper to remove excess oil.

  7. Additionally for that BBQ taste, you can grill the burgers after frying for 2-3 minutes. (Optional)

  8. Serve the aloo tikki patties hot with your favourite chutneys, in burger buns, or as a part of a main course with a fresh salad.


Additional Tips:

  • These patties are versatile and can be served in a variety of ways. Try them as a burger with vegan mayo, lettuce, and tomatoes, or as a snack with tamarind and mint chutneys.


Allergy information / alternatives:

  • For a gluten-free option, substitute the breadcrumbs with gluten-free breadcrumbs or additional chickpea flour.

  • To make it nut-free, ensure the chickpea flour and other ingredients are processed in a nut-free environment.
