Aloo Tikki Sandwich

Much as I stay away from canned / preserved food, I came across this dehydrated aloo mash in the stores that is a real boon.
All you have to do is add water to rehydrate it and you have mashed aloo in minutes. Make stuffed parathas,tikkis, .... whatever.

Made some tikkis and and a fast breakfast sandwich. There was nothing else that I could add .... if you want to, you can add mayonnaise / ketchup or a little mustard sauce too.
I had grated in some carrot too.

Need : Mashed aloo, frozen / parboiled green peas, grated ginger, grated carrot, chopped green chillies, onion sliced in rounds, cucumber slices, tomato slices, salt and freshly ground black pepper, a little cooking oil / butter, bread slices.

How to : Add the chopped green chillies, ginger, salt and the peas to the aloo and mix well. Shape into small tikkis.

Heat a non stick tawa and roast the tikkis with just a little spray of oil.

Toast the bread slices till brown. You can apply butter on them if you want to.

Arrange a tikki and some onion, tomato and cucumber slices on a bread and sprinkle salt and black pepper.

Cover with another bread.

Done! Great with a hot cup of tea . :-)

  8. Hi Sharmila,
    Made the aloo tikki sandwitches for sunday breakfast...maybe i had put a little more water in the aloo mash..so my tikkis were not as round and nicely shaped as yours...but believe me..the taste was amazing!!Hubby loved it! A big thank you to u my dear for such an easy n tasty recipe.
