Corn & Potato Tikki (Aloo-Corn Tikki) - Tawa Fry Method

 Tikki is a snack made out of boiled and mashed potatoes mixed with some spices. You can add boiled peas or corn for enhanced taste and flavor. Here I have used corn kernels. Potatoes, corn along with garlic and the spices is definitely a tongue pleaser :-) You can prepare this as an evening snack or for a tummy time at school. This hardly needs a tsp of oil for the quantity I have mentioned here. So enjoy a guilt free, tasty and healthy evening snack.


Potato - 1
Boiled corn kernels - 2 tbsp
Garlic - 1 or 2
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp, adjust as per taste
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
Bread crumbs - 2 tbsp approximately
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - as per taste

  • Boil and mash the potato and set aside.
  • In a mixer, add the boiled corn kernels, garlic pods and coriander leaves and grind coarsely. 
  • Transfer it to the bowl containing the mashed potato and add salt, garam masala, red chilli powder and asafoetida. Mix well.
  • Divide into equal portions and make them into rounds and flatten to make tikkis. Or you can make your preferred shape too. Coat the tikkis on both sides in bread crumbs. 
  • Heat a tawa and drizzle few drops of oil. Place the tikkis in the tawa and fry them on medium low flame until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip to the other side and repeat the same process. Enjoy hot with tomato ketchup.
