Aaloo tikki chaat is a famous healthy Indian snack filled with abundant flavors and colors. It is loved by everyone, be it a kid or an adult. It is also found in many street food shops, where people enjoy this delicacy. This recipe can also be made at home with many variations.

Here, I have made a simple aaloo tikki chaat topped with boiled chick peas, tamarind-jaggery chutney (sauce) and coriander-chilly chutney. It can also be made by topping the potato patties with spicy chickpeas curry. This way, the recipe is named as chole tikki chaat.

The left over chaat can also be made into a veggie burger or sandwich. This dish is wholesome and easy to make.

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: 4 Servings (8 potato patties, 2 pieces per person)

Ingredients for Four Servings

  • 4-5 Boiled Potatoes
  • 200 grams Boiled Chickpeas
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 5 Green Chillies
  • A piece of Ginger
  • 3-4 pinches of Cumin
  • 1 pinch of Chaat Masala Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
  • Salt for taste
  • 1 tsp Oil, to saute chopped spices
  • Pure Ghee, for shallow frying potato patties
  • A large bunch of Coriander leaves, to be added to mashed potatoes and for chutney/sauce
  • A large piece of Tamarind, for chutney/sauce
  • A large piece of Jaggery, for chutney/sauce

Instructions Summary

  1. Wash and make slits in potatoes (for quick boiling). Put potatoes in a pressure cooker and let them boil till 3-4 whistles.
  2. Put tamarind and jaggery pieces together and add half glass water and leave to boil till consistency is fine. After it is cooled, squeeze tamarind pieces till only the seeds are left. Your sweet chutney is ready.
  3. Put ginger, garlic cloves, chillies, little salt and cumin in a mortar and pestle and grind them into a fine paste.
  4. Take 1/2 tsp oil and saute the chopped spices for a minute.
  5. Mash potatoes finely. Add sautéed spices, turmeric powder, red chilly powder and chaat masala powder. Chop coriander leaves and add few lemon drops. Mix everything properly.
  6. Take a small amount of this mixture and make tikkis/patties with your palms.
  7. In a non-stick pan, add pure ghee and potato patties to it. Shallow fry till patties are golden brown.
  8. Take coriander leaves, little salt, water and 1 green chilly and grind them to a fine sauce. Your spicy chutney is ready.
  9. Take a bowl. Place two aloo tikkis/ potato patties, add few chickpeas and two tbsp of both the sweet and spicy chutneys.
  10. You can also sprinkle fresh pomegranate seeds, chopped onions, and sev on it, for more taste.
  11. Serve after cooking immediately as patties may turn soggy if left for long time.

9. Make tamarind-jaggery and coriander-chilly chutneys. Assemble all ingredients together.

All ingredients for the aloo tikki chaat preparation are ready. The green chutney consists of coriander-chilly paste while the brown chutney is the tamarind-jaggery paste. Don't mind the black tikkis!

10. Place two aaloo tikkis/potato patties in a bowl. Pour some plain boiled chickpeas on top. Add two tbsp of both the sweet and spicy chutneys (sauces).

I have included a video showing how chole tikki chaat is made. My recipe is aaloo tikki chaat just topped with plain chickpeas. If you watch the video, ignore the part where the chole/chickpea curry is made. If you would like to make it that way you can do that too!
