In this blog post, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of preparing these delectable potato pea patties that are sure to impress your taste buds.


  • Potatoes: Boiled and mashed
  • Peas: Boiled for 5 minutes
  • Breadcrumbs: 4 tablespoons (plus extra for coating)
  • Cornflour: 2 tablespoons
  • Grated ginger: 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander leaves: Chopped
  • Green chilli: Finely chopped
  • Garam masala powder: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red chilli powder: 1/4 teaspoon
  • Lemon juice: 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar: A pinch
  • Salt: To taste
  • Oil: For shallow frying





STEP-1 Prepare the Potatoes and Peas:

  • Begin by boiling the potatoes in a pressure cooker or a pan until they are soft.
  • Peel and mash the boiled potatoes.
  • Boil the peas in boiling water for 5 minutes, then drain them and transfer them to a small bowl.

STEP 2- Create the Pattie Mixture:

  • In a separate bowl, take the mashed potatoes and add the boiled peas.
  • Add 4 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, cornflour, grated ginger, chopped coriander leaves, finely chopped green chilli, garam masala powder, red chilli powder, lemon juice, a pinch of sugar, and salt.
  • Mix all the ingredients together to create a smooth dough-like mixture.

STEP 3- Form the Patties:

  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions.
  • Roll each portion into small-sized balls.
  • Take one ball and gently press it between your palms to create a round-shaped, 1/2-inch thick pattie.

STEP 4- Coat with Breadcrumbs:

  • Place 4 tablespoons of breadcrumbs on a plate.
  • Coat each prepared pattie with breadcrumbs on all sides by rolling it in the breadcrumb-filled plate.

STEP 5- Repeat and Prepare More Patties:

  • Repeat the above steps for the remaining balls to create more patties.

STEP 6- Shallow Fry the Patties:

  • Heat a non-stick flat pan (tawa) or griddle.
  • Once the pan is hot, drizzle 2-3 teaspoons of oil over it.
  • Place 3-4 patties in the pan and cook until the bottom surface turns golden brown.

STEP 7- Flip and Cook:

  • Flip each pattie upside down, drizzle some oil around its edges, and cook until the second side also turns golden brown.
  • Depending on the size of your pan, you can shallow fry more than 3-4 tikkis at a time.

There you have it, a delightful recipe for crispy potato pea patties. These savory and spiced tikkis make for a fantastic snack or appetizer for any occasion. Serve them hot with chutney or ketchup, and watch them disappear in no time. Enjoy your homemade aloo tikkis!
