Aloo Tikki

I had made Aloo Tikki's when J came over for lunch yesterday. She liked the dish and asked for the recipe. So this one is for J.

1 lb potatoes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp amchoor (dried mango powder)-available at any Indian store
Salt to taste
1 cup bread crumb
Cooking spray

To Garnish
1 small onion chopped fine
1/4 cup chopped cilantro/parsley
Tamarind-Data Chutney (Available at any Indian store)
Sev (Available at any Indian store)

Boil the potatoes till tender. Peel the skin. Mash the potatoes adding salt, cayenne pepper, amchoor, coriander powder, cumin powder, 1/4 cup bread crumb.

Heat a griddle / flat bottomed pan. Spray lightly with the cooking spray. Take a palmful of the potator mixture and roll it between your palms and flatten it. Roll the Tikka on the bread crumbs and put it on the griddle/pan. Cook till the side is light golden brown, a couple of minutes. Flip it over and cook till the other side is golden brown.

Serve the Tikka on a bed of chopped coriander leaves. Sprinkle with Sev and serve it hot with the date-tamarind chutney.
