Whenever I see people eating Aloo Tikki on streets, I see a lot of oil going into cooking. Well not anymore, here is my version of Aloo Tikki which is relatively healthy & light on stomach. Served with delicious coriander green chutney & some sev on top. It is so easy & quick that you might as well make it home rather than eating out.
Take 2 big potatoes, boil and mashed.
( #MeghnaDetox Alert : Potatoes are rich in Fibre & Vitamin B6 )
Add 1 finely chopped green chilli
Add 1 garlic clove crushed
Add some shredded ginger
Add Aamchur powder
We are not going to deep fry, so take a flat pan.
Put the pan on heat.
Add chopped coriander leaves into the mixture
Add bread crumbs for binding the mixture.
Mix all the ingredients well.
( #MeghnaDetox Alert : You may also ad Spinach & Carrots if you like )
The mixture should be of thick consistency.
Time to make Aloo Tikki.
Take a small portion of mixture in your palms.
Make a ball.
Flatten a little to give Tikki Shape.
Take Bread Crumbs in a bowl.
Coat the Aloo Tikki with Bread Crumbs on all the sides.
Put 2 tbs oil on the pan.
Now start placing Aloo Tikki on the pan.
Cook it on one side for 5 min.
Apply oil on the top side & flip to other side.
Again cook for 5 minutes.
Cook till gets golden color on both the sides.
( #MeghnaDetox Tip : By baking with olive oil instead of shallow-frying with veg. oil and by swapping bread crumbs with crushed oats, Calories will drop from 270 to 190 per serving )
