Aloo(Potato) Kebabs/Tikkis, I simply love potatoes, this bonding makes me try something with them; new or recreate. Got this idea from the regional cookery show aired on TV and also inspired by dear friends non stop potato recipe updates.
Aloo kebabs are crispy, soft and spongy and melt in the mouth. Yes, I have made them spicy with addition of green chilly you can omit it; it's completely up to you.
Wrap them up in Parathas/pita bread with some fresh salad for a filling meal or serve as is for evening snack. Needless to say, it makes a great starter for parties. Serve paired with Veg Pulao and raita to sparkle the usual boring breakfast.
3 Large potatoes (500 gm)
3 slices sandwich bread
2-3 tbsp rice flour (or cornflour)
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 green chillies, finely chopped
1 medium onion (optional)
1 small carrot
1 tsp chilli powder
½ tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Step 1: Boil potatoes with salt and cool,peel and mash, set aside. Cut onions into very small pieces or grate it. Peel and grate the carrot.
Step 2: Soak break in a cup of water just immerse and strain out the water and crush using your hand and put it in a large mixing bowl.
Step 3: Combine everything well in a large bowl, adjust seasoning. Take about tablespoon of mixture and give them a patty/tikkis shape and repeat with rest of the mixture.
Step 4: Heat oil in a wok, Fry them in medium to low heat, flip over until golden brown on outside and transfer to kitchen towel to strain excess oil.
As I always say spices can be adjusted according to your spice level
About a tbsp of lemon juice and cumin powder can be added for intense flavors.
