Aloo Tikki

I have always wanted to make cutlets. But thought it a huge task. These are an easy version of the deep fried cutlets. I shallow fried them in a pan with very little oil. Came across this recipe in a recipe book a long long time ago. Finally gave it a try.

These were too good! Hubby loves potatoes, so he was sampling the tikkies as they were coming out of the pan! But these tikkies have to be eaten hot, otherwise they get a bit soggy, as with all cutlets. Unfortunately I made this a bit early, and my guest was also running a bit late. Even though I tried heating them up in the microwave, they were still soggy. So I would suggest making the patties earlier and store them in the fridge, and cook them after your guests arrive.

Aloo Tikkies

2 – Slices of bread ( soaked in water and squeezed dry)
1 tsp – Pepper Powder
½ tsp – Garam Masala
