Have you been to a fast food restaurant in a foreign country? When I was in India, I went to several. McDonald’s, Subway, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino’s, etc. All of them were sooooooo much better than the fast food restaurants here in the US, except for Subway. I was not a fan of Subway India.
One of my favorite things from fast food in India was the McDonald’s McAloo Tikki Burger . I don’t know why, but I loved it. Well, I do know why. It’s cheap, filling, and mighty tasty. I decided to try to replicate it the other week, and the results were muy delicioso.
- 4 potatoes, peeled, boiled, mashed
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
- salt, to taste
- 1/2 tsp red chili powder
- 1/4 cup mixed veggies, boiled and mashed
- 1/4 cup grated paneer
- 1/2 tsp amchur powder
- 1/2 tsp chaat masala powder
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- bread crumbs for coating
- oil for frying
Coat them well with bread crumbs, and freeze the patties for an hour.
Heat oil on medium high, and fry patties till nice and golden brown and crispy.
Put them on a bun with your favorite toppings.
Yep, I’m aware that I either need a smaller tikki or a bigger bun. =)
