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. What you need: 1 1/2 lbs of baby starchy potatoes, peel if desired, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 2 garlic cloves minced, 2 in grated ginger,2 tbl corn starch,1/2 cup each of defrosted peas & corn, 1 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp each of Garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, cayenne powder (to taste), salt/pepper (to taste) For Breading: 3 tbl tapioca flour, whole wheat bread crumbs as needed
1️⃣ 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.
2️⃣ 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.
4️⃣Add 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
5️⃣Form 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
6️⃣For 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.
7️⃣ Mist patties with oil. On non stick pan over med heat pre cook patties 5min so breading gets toasted (in batches if needed)
8️⃣ 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.
