Aloo Tikki is a delicacy originating from the Indian subcontinent made mainly with boiled potatoes, onions, and various curries and aromatic herbs. They’re shallow fried in oil till crisp and golden. Aloo Tikki's crispy, savoury and flavourful characteristics make it an all-time favourite street food. It is often served with sweet-sour tamarind chutney or green chutney. In some places, it is also served with a spicy chickpea curry.
