aloo paneer tikki recipealoo paneer tikki recipe | paneer potato cutlet | paneer alu tikkis with step by step photo and video recipe. tikki is a popular snack from the north india and western indian cuisine and is served with wide range of sauces. typically it is made with just one hero ingredient and the most common is aloo or potatoes. but there are other fusion recipes which can be made mixing 2 hero ingredients and aloo paneer tikki recipe is one such fusion recipe.

as i mentioned earlier tikki recipes are generally made and served as street food snack. typically it is eaten with chaat recipes sauces like ragda, tamarind or green chutney but it can also be served as patties in between bread slices. i personally like it as patties in between burger slices or any sandwich slices. the main reason being it is so filling due to the use of potatoes and paneer in it. having said that in this paneer potato cutlet i have made a potato-based covering and stuffed the paneer masala grate inside it. well, you can attempt to have both mixed together and shape it like tikki. but due to the excess moisture within the paneer, you may not shape to the required one. hence i would not recommend it if you are making it for the first time.

furthermore, some more tips, suggestions and variations to a perfect aloo paneer tikki recipe. firstly, the moisture factor holds good for the boiled potatoes and not just for paneer. hence once the potatoes are boiled or pressure cooked, peel it and keep it aside. secondly, in this recipe, i have shallow fried with less oil for the healthy option. having said that you can also pan fry and also deep fry it for more crisp option. lastly, you can experiment the recipe by adding other boiled veggies with potato. you can add veggies like peas, carrot and beans to begin with.

finally, i would like to highlight my other detailed snacks recipes collection with this post of aloo paneer tikki recipe. it mainly includes my other related recipes post like dal dhokla, corn vada, gulgula, suji snacks, batata vada, cabbage vada, vegetable nuggets, kat vada, paneer pav bhaji, poha vada. further to these i would also like to mention my other related recipes categories like,
