How to make Aloo Kebab

  • To make Crispy Aloo Kebab we need to dry roast besan till it gives out aroma and changes color.
  • Mash potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add in other remaining ingredients (Except oil) including powdered & whole spices.
  • Also add roasted chickpea flour or besan and mix everything to combine well. It should form like a dough. In case you notice that it is still wet, then add more roasted besan and mix.
  • Now when our Kebab dough is ready we are all set to shallow fry them.
  • Grease your palms with oil and divide this dough into 10-12 portions.
  • Take one portion and shape into Tikki or whatever shape you prefer. Here I have used a heart shaped cookie cutter to give shape.
  • Shallow fry in hot oil on either sides till brown and crisp.
  • Serve hot with chutney and onion slices.
