Aloo Tikki Cheese Burgar Recipe

Fast food is delicious and Eating at home is good for me >> Fact. Making fast food at home with a few adjustments is delicious.

And that is what I did. After having a million Aloo Tikki cheese burgers from  which undoubtedly is one of the best fast food joints in india, I was inherently familiar with the taste, texture and every little detail that made me fall in love with this potato-y goodness! A few things I couldn’t compromise on – The Potato, The Burger Buns and a crunchy patties. I have since then made quite a few burgers which have a lot more healthy ingredients than this one . But for now, we stick to very simple steps – make an Indian-style potato patties and stuff it into cheese a burger bun and call it a day!

All my  friends – this is the real deal.  😉

Optional Ingredients
  • If you want to make the patties even more filling, you can smash some cooked peas into the mixture.
Instructions
  1. Cook the potatoes in a pressure cooker or steamer till they are soft but firm. If you insert a knife, it should go in and out of the potatoes without any trouble. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them and mash them. You can use a  fork or simply your hands.
  2. Sautée Onion in oil until they grown.
  3. Add all the minced garlic, Sautée Onion,chopped cilantro (coriander), spices, cornstarch, bread crumbs and mix well. Taste and adjust for seasoning, if required.
  4. Depending on the size of your burger buns, divide the mixture and make neat patties (Take a portion of the mixture, roll into a neat ball and then flatten it evenly to form a patty)
  5. Heat the oil on a pan (preferably non-stick) and add the patties on to the pan.
  6. Let them cook on one side for 4-5 minutes on medium heat. Do not flip. When it is fully cooked and golden brown, it will release itself. Flip and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, slice the burger buns. You can toast them, if you want to. Apply the sauces of you preference.

Place the patty on top. Add a slice of cheese, on top of the patty.

  1. Top the patty with tomato slices and onion rings. Apply sauce to the other half of the bun too.
  2. Close the burgers & enjoy!
Notes
  1. Do not make this on your grill. The mixture is too delicate and may disintegrate. Best option is to use a regular iron or preferably non-stick pan
  2. The spices are typical to the Indian cuisine. Feel free to play with the amounts
  3. Don’t add too much of breadcrumbs or the patties will be tough and wouldn’t have much flavor
