Aloo Tikki Burgers

Burgers have more than hundreds of variations across the world. It is believed that Burgers originated back in 1st Century in Europe mainly as Hamburgers, in and around 18th Century the Hamburgers traveled to Asian Countries.

They are among the favorite snack around the world at present and mostly famous in the USA. After the entry of multi-nationals like McDonald’s, Burger King etc. Local tastes in the burger patties got infused in Indian outlets and soon it became a part of Indian street food list, and in this recipe I am trying to mirror the favorite Aloo Tikki Burger (Potato Patty Burgers) with Indian flavors!

So let’s begin…


(For 4 Burgers, tsp= Tea Spoon, tbsp= Table Spoon)

Boiled Aloo (Potatoes) – 3, peeled

Burger Buns – 4, each separated into 2 halves

Any sandwich spread of your choice- 4 spoons

Chaat Masala – 1 tbsp

Lal Mirch Powder (Red Chilli Powder) – 1 tsp

Dhaniya Powder (Coriander Powder) – 1 tbsp

Garam Masala – 1 tsp

Jeera Powder (Cumin powder) – ½ tsp

Namak (salt) – 1 tbsp

Hari Mirch (Green Chillies) – 2, finely chopped

Hari Dhaniya (Green Coriander) – few strands, finely chopped

Besan (Gram Flour) – 1 tbsp

Oil/Ghee – 4 to 5 tbsp

Butter – 1 tbsp

Pyaz (Onion) – 1 small, cut into thin-round shapes

Tamatar (Tomato) – 1 small, cut into thin-round shapes (optional)

Kheera (Cucumber) – 1 small, cut into thin-round shapes (optional)

Patta Gobhi (Cabbage) – ¼ cup, grated (optional)

Salad Leaves (Lettuce leaves) – 4 medium size

Tomato sauce – around 4 spoons

Chilli Sauce/Green Chatni – around 4 spoons

Paneer (Cottage Cheese) – ¼ cup, grated (you can also use a slice of paneer in each burger)

Grated Cheese or Cheese slice


Take the peeled, boiled aloo in a bowl mash them and add lal mirch powder, Dhaniya powder, garam masala, jeera powder, namak, chopped hari mirch, hari Dhaniya, mix everything nicely until a uniform mixture is ready.

Now put a shallow frying pan over the flame, add a table spoon of oil or ghee. Make 4 round tikki (patty) of the aloo mix. Spread the besan in a plate, uniformly coat the tikkis with a thin layer of besan and put them into the pan for shallow frying. (If you want you can deep fry the patty as well)

Shallow fry the Aloo Tikkis until they turn dark brown from both the sides.

Now place a Tava on medium flame, add some butter and put the burger buns from the inner sides, let them turn crispy and light brown (only from the inner sides). Repeat the same for all the 4 buns.

Put the lower portions of all the 4 buns on a plate, simultaneously spread tomato ketchup and chilli sauce on the buns, then place the Aloo tikkis, followed by grated paneer. Then place the veggies of your choice – pyaz, tamatar, kheera, patta gobhi, lettuce leaves, followed by a pinch of chaat masala and grated cheese. (If you are using cheese slice then place it before you place the veggies)

Now on the upper burger bun, put a spoon of sandwich spread and place it on top of the bun piece already ready!

Your burger is ready to be served with some chips/fries and love!
