Did you enjoy our Home made Aloo Tikki Burger – Potato Patties Burger Under 30 Minutes  Let us know.


  • The thorough mixing of all the ingredients into the mashed potato mixture is key to having a nice flavorful patty.
  • Make sure the water is drained from the potatoes and peas before mashing. Water content will make it difficult to mould the patties.
  • If your burger has to be reheated, remove  the buns with the veggies. Heat the patties in a pan or in the microwave and reassemble.
  • Do not reheat the veggies.
  • If you do not like raw onion it may be omitted but adds kick and crunch.
  • Picky eaters: Substitue the veggies for cheese slice and broil over the patty till melted and serve.
  • If  your patties are difficult to lift to the pan, it is likely that there is too much moisture. You could work around this by placing in the freezer for 10 minutes till set and then grilling.
  • If you like your patties spicy, add finely mixed green chillies to the mashed potato.
  • Note that you can skip the egg yolk and replace with Dijon Mustard. You can also replace mayonnaise and make a coriander chutney to use as dressing.
