Aloo Tikki 💚🥔💚 (Potato Croquettes)

Potatoes are so awesome. In these fritters the potatoes absorb all the Indian spices & the crust is so crunchy with NO FRYING.

So crunchy on the outside & super soft on the inside.Thank you Airfryer. I love you…. but hold up, you can also use an oven to make these babies.

Servings: 5 pieces


  • 1 1/2 lbs baby starchy potatoes peel if desired
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 inch ginger grated
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp Garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
  • cayenne powder to taste

For breading

  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • whole wheat bread crumbs


  • Steam potatoes on stovetop in a steamer till fork tender (around 20-30 min). Then put through a ricer or mash to achieve a smooth consistency. If you have a ricer you will notice that it peels the potatoes. Let cool.
  • On stovetop, drizzle pan with neutral oil on med, when hot add cumin & mustard seeds, when fragrant & the seeds start to pop, mix in ginger & garlic. Heat for 30 sec being careful not to burn garlic.
  • Add spices & herbs from stovetop to potato mash, along with potato starch, veggies, & remaining seasonings. Mix until evenly distributed. Mash should feel smooth. If wet add a bit of startch.
  • Form mash into 1/4 cup patties, separate using wax /parchment paper. Place in fridge to firm up at least 1/2 hr or till the next day.
  • For breading: mix tapioca powder with water till it forms a thin batter & spread out breadcrumbs on a plate. Dip patty into batter then dredge in bread crumbs, repeat process again, place on parchment paper. Repeat.
  • Mist patties with oil. On non stick pan over med heat pre cook patties 5min so breading gets toasted (in batches if needed).
  • Next Preheat air fryer at 400 F, then bake patties till crust gets golden & firm, about 10 min, flipping halfway through. Alternatively bake in preheated oven at 400 till golden.


Enjoy! Oh, I served them with a homemade cilantro chutney & sriracha mayo.
