Aloo tikki chaat made in Air fryer is much healthier and as tangy, sweet, spicy and all things delicious. Memories take me back to Indian street food thelas that had piping hot aloo tikkis served with the topping of green chutney and sweet chutney with yogurt and spices. It was a burst of delicious flavours in the mouth. My mum would regularly make aloo tikkis at home. The recipe is simple but really delicious.

You can have fillings in your aloo tikkis from cottage cheese to peas and even nuts. But I like it simple. You can also serve your aloo tikkis just with green chutney and garnished with onions and cilantro. Serve with this delicious lemongrass tea.

Or you can serve them with this ragda or matar curry topped generously with chutney and chopped onions.

  • This recipe yields about 12 tikkis which I cooked in 2 batches.

Shallow frying instructions:

  • Heat a skillet or tawa. Take 2 tbsps. of ghee or oil and shallow fry about 5-6 aloo tikkis on both sides. It will take you about 3-4 minutes each side. Keep turning them till they are nice and brown. Your crispy tasty aloo tikkis are ready to eat. Use the same method to cook the remaining tikkis.
  • You can serve these tikkis as it is with green chutney or ketchup along with a garnish of chopped onions. These go very well with lemongrass tea.


1. You can cook potatoes so that they are well boiled and can mash easily.
2. Adjust seasoning as per taste.
3. Have hot aloo tikkis. They taste the best. In case, you wish to have later, then air fry once for about 10 minutes and later reheat for 4 minutes before serving.
4. Assemble aloo tikki chaat with hot tikkis.
