Aloo Tikki Burger

Crispy aloo (potato) patty, some sliced onions & tomatoes and a bit of mayonnaise & ketchup, then all these between toasted buns. That’s YUM!!! This is my dear friends a vegetarian Indian style burger and it’s called Aloo Tikki Burger. A beautiful must try recipe.

I have shallow fried the patties for this burger. You can also bake them or deep fry them. 

I have used 2:1 mayonnaise:ketchup ratio. You can adjust it as per your taste.

Lastly, I have used regular buns for the burger as I don’t wanna miss a single bit flavor. You can even go for whole wheat or multi grain if you prefer.
