Aloo Tikki for MBP-Less is More

When Nupur announced MBP-theme, the event started by Coffee, I had the post ready with me. It was intended for the previous MBP. But could not post it then. I tried Aloo Tikki from Sindhi Rasoi. You can visit Alka's website for some mouth-watering Sindhi recipes.

I followed her recipe except that I shallow fried the tikkis. It was no less tastier than the deep fried ones. Here is the recipe that I tried

1) 3 Potatoes
2) 2 Bread slices

3) 1 tspn red chilli powder (Original - Green chilly)
4)1/2 tspn Cumin powder ( Replaced cumin seeds)
5) few finely chopped coriander leaves

salt to taste
Oil for frying

According to the rules of MBP, oil and salt are not counted. Also I could have combined the last three as one , as part of seasoning. Anyways, it adds upto 5.

Pressure cook potatoes. Peel them and mash lightly.Crumble the bread slices in a mixer grinder. Mix mashed potatoes, bread crumbs, cumin powder, salt, finely chopped coriander leaves together. Take lemon sized balls of the mixture and shape into tikki.

Heat a tawa. Spray some oil. Arrange the tikkis. Cook both sides till golden brown. Add few drops of oil when you turn the tikkis.

Serve with ketchup or any chutney of your choice.


  1. Hi jayasree,
    I m so glad that u tried these and liked,i also prefer shallow frying these,but occasionally a fried version is made when some guests are there to eat with us,spl. if they r on surprise visit.Fried tikkis are made in less time than shallow fried,so it becomes easy to fix a quick lunch/snack that way
    U have a very nice blog,and i will definitely like to explore more of it!
    Thanks again,
