Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat (Potato Patties with Spicy Chick Pea Curry)

‘Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat’ is a popular street food of North India. ‘Aloo Tikki’ is spiced potato patties, whereas ‘Chole’ is a spicy and hot North Indian chickpea curry. The first time I had ‘Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat’ was at a shop at New Market, more precisely beside New Empire Cinema Hall during my college days, when we used to watch movies on regular basis with friends. My college was near Rabindra Sadan and Nandan was our hang out place since there were no Shopping Malls at that time. So New Market, Sriram Arcade and Treasure Island were our most favourite shopping destinations. Sometimes when I visit New Market still love to have Chole – Bhature, Samosa-Chana Chaat and Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat from that narrow untidy food joint, sitting on wooden bench on foot path. I couldn’t believe what I was eating when I first tasted it. It was soooo good!

Usually when I make Chole or Ghugni, I always make some extra. So the next day we can have the Chole with Aloo Tikkis or Ragda Pattis. So when I had made the Punjabi Chole Masala, I served the Chole next day with the Aloo Tikki. I made plain tikkis and much smaller in size. The Tikkis by themselves were so good and with the Punjabi Chole Masala, it was a double dose of deliciousness. Now these ‘aloo tikkis’ can also be served as a snack with some sauce or chutney. They also can be stuffed in burgers.
