If you love street food and have ever been to Delhi, Aloo tikki chaat is one thing you just can not miss this from old Delhi Chaat menu Where you get most awesome Karari (crispy) and spicy Aloo tikki. A huge batch of tikki being fried on a big wave/griddle in ghee and a queue waiting for their turn to get their piping hot Aloo tikki that’s the usual scene at any chaat shop in Delhi.
But if you have not been to Delhi or if you are trying to make Aloo tikki at home and it does not turn out as crispy as the popular street food joints. Try this recipe of mine you will never miss the taste of Aloo tikki from the Local Chaat Wala ( Chat vendor). Follow the exact proportions and cooking method and make exactly street style Aloo Tikki chaat easily at home.
When you want to make crisp aloo tikki, two things you must take care. First, the amount of cornflour you use, too little your tikki will not have enough binding and too much it ends up tasting too powdery. Second is how you cook the tikki, It should be cooked on slow-medium flame till outer skin is uniformly browned.
Another thing that is important in making good Aloo tikki chaat is how you assemble it. Aloo tikki can be served as Aloo tikki chole in which chaat is made with tikki and along with chutneys and dahi it is topped with spicy chole curry. Another popular way of serving street style aloo tikki is to serve it with sweet tamarind chutney and tangy and hot green chutney with dahi/curd/yogurt.
We love it both ways, but here I have shown the Tikki with Chutneys spices and whipped yogurt. Also, when making Aloo Tikki you can make them plain or with stuffing. Here I have made them typical Delhi style stuffing of paneer and kishmish (raisins).

Tips Of Making Crisp Tikki
- Mash boiled potatoes as fine as you can. We don’t want any lumps there.
- Always use cornflour for binding, this binds the potatoes better and gives a crisp outer layer to tikki.
- Shallow frying on slow-medium heat is must for the crisp outer layer.
- While you are shallow frying flip/turn the tikki minimum two times and keep pressing with a flat spatula in between.
If you take care of these tree things your tikki will turn out crisp each time you make it.
