This is such a quick and easy way to make an aloo tikki! No boiling of potatoes or any such thing that needs pre prep.Here is how this recipe came into this blog.
Sometimes I am at loss for after school snack ideas. I look around for some easy recipes and once I spotted this one on Nag’s blog. I made it the same day I set my eyes on it.
Clearly, the kids loved it so much. I was happy that I could make something at short notice!
This month @ Recipe ReDux, the theme is as follows..
Spring Clean the Kitchen
Cook with at least 3 ingredients that are actually in your refrigerator or pantry right now. Try not to go to the store to buy anything new. Give tips on how to make a healthy dish out of whatever you have on-hand.
In accordance to this theme, I used the last of the rice flour and besan[chickpea flour] that I had in the fridge.Potato and onion are ever present in the vegetable basket.Every ingredient that was used in this was already present in the fridge / pantry .This is also the healthier version as it is cooked in a griddle as opposed to deep frying,so I think this dish fits the bill.
A quick and easy snack made with potato, perfect as an after school snack / with a cup of tea
- 2 numbers Potato Large
- 1 number Onion Chopped
- 1/4 cup Besan / Chickpea flour
- 1/8 cup Rice flour

Grate the potato. Squeeze out the excess water.

Take equal sized portions and form patties.
Cook on a heated griddle, drizzling oil if needed , till both sides are golden brown.You can also cover and cook for a few minutes on each side before letting them turn crisp so that they are well cooked on the inside as well.
