Aalu Tikki (Potato Peas Cutlet)

Aalu Tikki, These cutlets we are eating since childhood from Indian street chaat food. This one used to be one of the biggest treat for evening snack. These cutlets are full of flavor with the crusty top with soft potatoes and the core is burst of flavors..I hope you all will love this and enjoy as a tea time snack.


2 Cup Boiled Mashed Potatoes
1 tbsp Cornflour
1 tsp Lime Juice
1 tsp Cumin Powder
½ tsp Red Chili Powder
1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste

1 tsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
