Mashed Potato Cakes

When I lived in India,  Aloo Tikki was my FAVORITE street food. It’s served there with pomegranate seeds and several sauces drizzled over the top: plain yogurt, a cilantro sauce and a spicy ketchup. The combination of all these flavors is mind blowing.

Potatoes, peas and mild Indian spices make up the base of these easy-to-prepare patties. Serve with a variety of chutneys, either as an appetizer or as a nice light meal with a side salad.

  • 3 large potatoes,  mashed
  • ¾ cup frozen peas (uncooked)
  • ½ large onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tbs. grated ginger
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbs. bread crumbs
  • 4 tbs. chickpea flour

  • In medium bowl add mashed potatoes and add in all the other ingredients.
  • Form into patties. Heat a little olive oil over medium-high heat and fry a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain and cool on paper towels.
  • Serve the patties either warm or at room temperature with tamarind, tomato, or mint chutney. If desired, sprinkle the tops of the patties with a bit of chat Masala. Enjoy!
