Aloo ki tikki

I tried this dish as I felt,this will be definately eaten by my daughter who loves aloo parathas & all ki sabzi.The recipe I followed is from Sanjeev Kapoor's khana khazana on the net.But I used hari mirchi instead of lal mirch powder.I also added a thin slice of bread to the mashed potatoes.Bread is not an ingredient in Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe.

Ingredients : 3/4 medium potatoes,1-2 bread slices( brown /white ),1 hari mirch,1/4 inch ginger,a few sprigs of fresh coriander ( washed ),1tsp garam masala,2 tbsp oil,1/4 piece lemon,1/4 tsp haldi,1/4 tsp hing & salt to taste.

Method : Boil potatoes nicely .Peel them & mash them so that no lumps remain.Make a paste of the green chilly & ginger.Add this to the mashed potato.Add the bread slices to the mashed potato.Agin mix thoroughly.One option is to wet the bread slices & squeeze the water & then add it to the potato.I added only a thin slice & so I added it just like that without wetting it.Now add haldi,hing,garamm masala , finely cut fresh coriander ,lemom juice of the lemon piece & salt & mix the whole mixture again. Take a little oil on the palms & a small amount of the potato mixture & press it to get a small flat round shape.Repeat with the rest of the mixture.Take a tawa & put the flat round aloo tikkis on the tawa & put a little oil on each of them.Shallow fry on the tawa.Turn the tikkis upside down & shallow fry again.Serve the aloo tikkis with green chutney or tomato sauce.

    Jokes aside... I wonder why mothers have to break their heads over what their kids may CHOOSE NOT TO EAT? I trust their job ends with preparation of a menu that fits the season & time when the food is served. LET KIDS BE ON BHOOKH HARTAAL,HEAVEN FALLS, BUT NOT SO SOON.
    If elders go by whims & fancies of own kids,driven by Ad-world of TV,net etc, we will not groom a generation that knows the REAL world around them.
    Messing around with bread slice isn't as smart as crushing a few sooji toasts, thus keeping aloo mix free of water.
    Why not name your Aloo ki Tikki 'NAMAK-HARAAM'? Salt, at all stages is conspicuous by its absence!!
