I come from an agricultural family. I love to cook and eat natural and healthy foods.

What Is Potato Tikki Chaat?

Potato tikki chaat, or aloo tikki chaat, is a tongue-tickling street snack made of boiled potatoes, onion, peas, and spices. Tikkis are small cutlets, usually oval or round in shape, that are shallow-fried on a flat pan.

Tikkis are typically served with mint-coriander chutney (also known as green chutney) and sweet-sour chutney. I have included recipes for both of these chutneys below.

Sometimes, potato tikki chaat is also served with yogurt on top. This is just another serving option.

Making this snack is easy and does not take much time. Let's get started!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 10 tikkis


  • 2 cups potato, boiled, mashed
  • 1 tbsp onion, finely chopped, sauteed
  • 1 tbsp peas, boiled, optional
  • 1/2 tsp coriander-cumin powder, available in Indian stores
  • 1/8 tsp dry mango powder (Amchur powder), available in Indian stores
  • 1/8 tsp chat masala, available in Indian stores
  • 1/8 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp garam masala powder, available in Indian stores
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or as per taste
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • oil, for shallow frying


  1. Boil the potatoes and then mash them in a mixing bowl.
  2. To the mashed potatoes, add all of the other ingredients, except for the oil. Mix well. Check for salt and spices. Adjust accordingly.
  3. Pinch out a fistful of dough, making a round or oval shape. Flatten it a little. The tikkis should be thick.
  4. Heat a flat pan over medium-high heat with a generous amount of oil. Place the tikkis on the pan. Once the tikki starts to become golden, reduce the heat to a minimum. Flip them upside down. Add some oil on the edges and allow the bottom become golden, as well. Shallow-fry both the sides, until the tikkis become a bit crispy.
  5. Remove the tikkis from the pan and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil, if any.
  6. Place two warm tikkis on a serving plate. Pour a spoon of yogurt on each. Pour some sweet-sour chutney and green chutney over it.
  7. Sometimes people sprinkle some boondis, or red chili powder, on top. Toppings may vary according to your liking. Enjoy!
