Aloo tikki is a North Indian and Pakistani snack made of boiled potatoes, onions and various spices. "Aloo" means potato, and the word "tikki" means a small cutlet or croquette. It is found in almost every chaat shop or stall in Delhi as well as in other parts of India. It is served hot along with saunth, tamarind and coriander-mint sauce, and sometimes yogurt or chick peas.


In Pakistan, aloo tikki is a very popular snack. It is usually eaten with Naan and Chutney for breakfast or lunch as well as just with tea in evening. It is also the popular in school cafeterias. It is made very often during Ramadan time while opening the fasts or iftar.

In Mumbai, a popular version is aloo tikki served with a spicy curry and various chutneys. It is called "Ragda pattice" and is sold on the various chaat stalls throughout the city and especially the Chowpatti Beach.

Aloo tikki is basically mashed potato patties mixed with coriander, Onion and spices, deep-fried in oil and some North Indian dhabas or café-style eateries will sandwich the aloo with bread.

In the United Kingdom, vegetable tikki is available from delicatessen counters at various shops. It is very popular in the East Midlands area of the United Kingdom.

As with the majority of cultural and linguistic factors – barring other influences – this cuisine can be found in areas that are part of subcontinent, such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and India.

In Delhi, "chandni chowk" is famous for aloo tikki and other chats [1]
