This recipe is also a famous street food in India like the puffed rice. To know the recipe of puffed rice, read

This dish is a famous North Indian street food. You can pair it up with garbanzo beans or chole and it becomes an entirely different dish. This is one of the most easiest snack I have ever prepared and it uses very less oil. Though some prefer to deep fry it but I find it not so healthy.

My husband usually puts it between bread and eats it like a burger whereas I just love to eat it after dipping it in tomato ketchup. This dish is a favorite dish among all the kids I know. Whenever my friends drop in at my house with their kids, I am specially demanded for this dish by the kids!

Serving 2

Cooking time 15 minutes


  • Potato 2- 3 medium sized.
  • Chili as per taste
  • Chili powder 1/ 4 tsp ( optional )
  • Salt as per taste. My husband prefers a little bit of rock salt in this snack. You can also use it. Using of rock salt is optional.
  • Coriander / Cilantro a bunch - chopped in small pieces. ( I used coriander powder 1/ 4 tsp because I cannot stand the smell of coriander leaves )
  • Cumin powder 1/ 4 tsp
  • Curry masala 1/4 tsp (optional)
  • Chat Masala 1/4 tsp
  • In case you do not have chat masala, use 1 tsp lime juice.
  • Bread crumbs 1 cup (optional)
  • Carrot 1 chopped in small pieces. (optional)
  • Peas 1/4 cup (boiled) (optional)
  • Ginger paste 1 tsp
  • OIl 1-2 tsp


  • Boil and peel the potatoes. Once they have cooled, mash the boiled potatoes and keep them in a bowl.
  • Mix all the ingredients together excepting the bread crumbs ( i.e, mix boiled potatoes, chili, red chili powder, chat masala, ginger paste, carrot pieces, peas, salt, coriander powder, cumin powder, curry masala). Do not add water.
  • Make small balls of he mixture and then flatten them a bit. This shape is called tikki (cutlet)
  • Now simply coat the cutlets in bread crumbs. I do not use bread crumbs in my recipe.
  • Simply brush little oil in the tikki.
  • Preheat the oven at 250 degree for 15 minutes
  • Place the tikki in an oven safe dish.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes and then turn the tikki (cutlet)
  • Bake again for 10 minutes.
  • In case you are cooking the potato snack at the stove top :-
  • Heat a skillet and cook the potato balls at medium flame. Use a non stick pan. It is preferable.
  • Cook till the side is golden brown, flip and cook the other side of the tikki (cutlet)
  • Remove from the stove when they are golden brown.
  • You can add a little more oil if you want.
  • Serve this dish hot with tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup.

      I love Indian food - and this looks so delicious! It also looks fairly low-fat, since you bake them rather than frying them. I think this would be a nice finger-food appetizer for parties, too.

      Thanks! I'm ready to make them!
