For the Aloo Tikki:
  • 3 large potatoes, boiled and peeled
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder/ amchur powder
  • 2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp chaat masala 
  • 1/2-1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • A large bunch of coriander leaves
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (powder sliced bread)
  • 1 1/2 tsp corn flour/ corn starch
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil
For the sliders:
  • Slider buns
  • Chopped onions
  • Coriander chutney (recipe here)
  • Tamarind chutney (recipe here)
  • Mozzarella cheese or sliced cheese
  • Butter
  • Ketchup (optional)
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • The aloo tikkis can be eaten as such as a snack.
  • You can skip the tamarind chutney if you don’t have the patience to make it or if you don’t like the taste of it, but it gives a nice flavor to the sliders.
To make aloo tikki:
  1. Mash boiled potatoes in a bowl. Add all the spices and salt to the potatoes. Knead well. Add corn flour and bread crumbs. Mix well together. Check if seasoning is good, if not add more spices. 
  2. Refrigerate for an hour or freeze for 15 mins. 
  3. Make small patties out of it. You will get around 10-12 patties. (You can freeze it for later use at this stage, but make sure that each aloo tikki is separated by a cling film to avoid sticking)
  4. In a frying pan heat 2-3 tbsp of oil and shallow fry these tikkis until they turn golden brown and crisp on the outside. The heat shouldn’t be too high such that the tikkis turn brown fast, at the same time the heat shouldn’t be too low or it will soak up lots of oil. So adjust the heat accordingly.
To assemble the sliders:
  1. Cut open the slider bun. In a frying pan, heat some butter and toast the buns well.
  2. Spread a generous amount of coriander chutney on one side of the bun.
  3. Add mozzarella cheese or sliced cheese. (you can add mayonnaise instead of the cheese if you prefer that way)
  4. Place the tikki. Spread tamarind chutney and chopped onions. Place the other slice of bun. Spread a little bit of butter on top of the bun to keep it moist.
  5. Place the sliders on a pan, cover and cook on low heat till the cheese melts. You can heat the sliders covered in the oven too.
