The Aloo Tikkis also known as cutlets or patties are made from boiled potatoes, combined with green peans and spiced up with green chillies and flavored with coriander. The aloo tikki's are typically pan fried with oil or even deep fried in some places. But her in this recipe, I am going to show to how to make the aloo tikki healthier by baking them. You can also make it nutritious with the addition of grated carrots, cheese, panner, green spring onions, corn, grated beetroot or any thing you can think of. Sandwich it between a burger bread/ normal sliced bread and pack it off as a snack or a lunch box for kids. The most favourite combination of it is to make the Chole Aloo Tikki Chaat.
So lets dive right in to see how to make the healthy Baked Aloo Tikki recipe.

Ingredients to make the Baked Aloo Tikki Recipe
- 1 cup of steamed green peas
- 3 large potatoes, boiled and peeled
- 2 large sweet potatoes, boiled and peeled
- 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
- 2 finely chopped green chillies
- 1 finely chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons of green chutney
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour
- 3/4 cup of Bread crumbs
- oil for greasing
- salt to taste
- In a food processor, add in both the boiled regular potatoes and sweet potatoes, th steamed green peas, a teaspoon of grated ginger, two roughly chopped green chillies, a large finely chopped onion, two tablespoons of mint chutney, some salt to taste and finally a tablespoon of corn flour binding.
- Cover the food processor and blend until the potatoes are coarsely mashed and all the ingredients come together. Open the processor and give the mixture a stir halfway through so the ingredients come together and blend again
- Transfer the potato dough into a bowl so we can begin to shape them into kebabs or tikkis
- Grease your fingers with a little oil and shape the potato dough into bite size tikkis or large lemon size balls, dust them in bread crumbs and place them on the baking tray. Proceed the similar way with the remaining dough
- You can also shape the dough in the form of a cylinder like the kebabs, dust them in bread crumbs and insert them into a skewer and grill them. I will now place the tikkis in an oven preheated to 200 C and bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned.
- After about 15 minutes, I will now remove the aloo tikkis from the oven. Notice the light browning from the top. The tikkis will not brown too much as they have no oil in them
- If you want it to be crisper then you can drizzle some oil on top of the aloo tikkis before they go into the oven.
- Serve the Baked Healthy Aloo Tikkies as a tea time snack with Masala Chai or even make it into an Chole Aloo Tikki Chaat along with Green Chutney and Date Tamarind Chutney
