Aloo Tikki/Potato Cutlets

Aloo tikki is one of the famous chaat items in India. One of my friends in my new place made this aloo tikki for me. I loved it and it is very easy to make. The important thing is we need not deep fry it. Even then they taste really good and now it is my favourite snack for the evening. Here is the recipe for this easy, tasty and quick snack…
