Potato Cake


Potato Cake 炸薯餅 also known as Aloo Tikki, is a popular street food snack in India. It is made from mashed potatoes that are mixed with various spices and then shallow or deep-fried until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Aloo Tikki is often served with chutneys, yogurt, and toppings like chopped onions and sev (crispy fried noodles).

To make Indian Potato Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

– Potatoes: Boiled, peeled, and mashed.
– Bread crumbs: Used as a binding agent.
– Green chili: Finely chopped (adjust the quantity according to your spice preference).
– Ginger: Grated or finely minced.
– Coriander leaves: Chopped.
– Red chili powder: For heat and flavor.
– Garam masala: A spice blend for added flavor.
– Amchur powder (dry mango powder): Adds a tangy taste.
– Salt: To taste.
– Oil: For shallow or deep frying.

Here’s a general recipe for Indian potato tikki:

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, bread crumbs, green chili, ginger, coriander leaves, red chili powder, garam masala, amchur powder, and salt. Mix well to form a uniform mixture.
2. Divide the mixture into equal-sized portions and shape them into round or flattened patties.
3. Heat oil in a pan for shallow frying or deep frying.
4. Carefully place the potato tikkis into the hot oil and cook until they turn golden brown and crisp on both sides. If shallow frying, flip them halfway through the cooking process.
5. Once cooked, remove the tikkis from the oil and place them on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
6. Serve the potato tikkis hot with mint chutney, tamarind chutney, or yogurt. You can also garnish them with chopped onions, sev, and a sprinkle of chaat masala for added flavor.

Aloo Tikki can be enjoyed as a standalone snack or used as a base for various street food dishes like Aloo Tikki Chaat, where it is topped with chutneys, yogurt, and other flavorful ingredients. It’s a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of Indian spices and potatoes.
