How to make it

  • Boil potatoes in their skin, until soft. I cook them in pressure cooker for 4-5 minutes or microwave in a plastic bag, with 2-3 tbs. water, for 8 minutes.
  • Cool, peel and mash potatoes. You can grate them coarsely. They do not need to be too smooth.
  • Chop finely or process onions, ginger, green chillies.
  • Chop bread slices finely in a food processor, to make crumbs. They should not be ground to a paste. Slightly 'rough texture' of ingredients adds to the taste.
  • Add crumbs, chopped coriander leaves, salt, garam masala and roast cumin powder to the boiled potatoes.
  • With oiled hands, divide it into 10-12 equal portions, roll them into balls and then flatten them into 'tikki' or burger shapes.
  • Heat 2-3 tbs. of oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan. I use a non-stick pan, and fry 3-4 tikkies at a time, on medium heat, until nicely brown and crisp on both side. You may need to add more oil for subsequent batches. they can be cooked up to this stage in advance.
  • When ready to serve, press each tikki with a flat spatula, squashig it flatter and cook it a little more, so more of it's surface gets crisp. A finished and properly squashed tikki does not have smooth edge.
  • Take out and place on absorbent paper.
