Aloo Tikkis (Indian Potato Cakes)

Submitted by: LOTUS737

Introduction

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    5 medium-sized potatoes
    2 medium-sized yellow or white onions
    3/4 cup frozen peas
    1 jalapeno pepper
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
    3 tbsp canola oil
    4 tbsp chopped raw cilantro

Directions

Boil the potatoes until fork-tender.
As they cool, dice the onions and mince the jalapeno.
Saute' them with salt in canola oil just until the onions begin to turn golden brown.
Add the frozen peas and heat through until they're as cooked as you like them.
Peel and mash the potatoes in a large bowl.
Add the onion and jalapeno mixture, and mix well.
If you can get your hands on mango powder (amchur) add 1/2 a teaspoon to the mix.
Mix in two teaspoons of the bread crumbs and the cilantro.
Then form patties out of the potato mixture and pan-fry them until golden brown.
I divided this mix into 10 good-sized patties.
You can use 1 tablespoon of oil to cook the patties so they become golden brown and crisp (usually they are deep-fried).
Serve the tikkis plain or with tamarind sauce and green chutney.
I found that plum sauce is a good substitute that's readily available in stores.
Ketchup is a nice condiment for these as well.
You can also serve one or two tikkis over pasta and tomato sauce.
They are often traditionally served with cholay, a chick pea dish.
Hope you enjoy!

    I found that the recipe needed an egg to hold it together and the recipe ingredients call for 1/2 cup of crumbs but only put in 2 t in the recipe instructions. I found that I needed to take the patties and bread them with the leftover crumbs in order to fry them. - 7/10/07

    very good..the jalepenos give it a nice "kick".. I didn't even
    notice the 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs ....I only use the 2 teaspoons in the directions. maybe more would have them hold together a little better....but they were good anyway! hubby even like them. - 2/14/11

    This sounds good, but like TCOWEN613 said, it needs an egg to keep it together (even though I have not made it yet, I would think an egg would do the trick). - 2/7/11

    We make something simular to this . It is called Potato Balls without the peas, also we make Egg Ball, using boiled eggs, boiled potatoes, celery, onions, pepper, garlic, egg white and some whole wheat flour. It is delicious when served hot and with either sour sauce or pepper sauce. - 2/7/11
