Aloo Tikki Sandwich Recipe – An Epitome of Fusion & Contrast

Aloo Tikki Sandwich is very healthy and very easy to prepare. It consists of potato patties, tandoori spread, and coleslaw. It’s a fusion sandwich that features the tastes of Indian and Continental cuisines. The coleslaw is known to have originated in the Netherlands, while the other elements such as the tandoori spread and the patties are flavored with Indian masalas. The best part is both tandoori spread and coleslaw are made with yogurt and not mayonnaise. Make sure the coleslaw is chilled. The crunch of cabbage and carrots complements the crust and softness of the patties. Besides, the cold and hot create an interesting contrast of temperatures, which by the way feels very pleasant. The tandoori spread is very rich, tangy, and piquant. It has characteristic flavors of the marinade that is used to make tandoori chicken, only a bit milder.

The potato patty, also known as aloo tikki or batata chap, is my Mom’s recipe that I have relished since childhood. For a 4-year-old, it was astonishing that I could finish off the 5-6 patties at ones. They are so addictive!It basically belongs to the Sindhi cuisine. The shallow-fried version tastes way better than the deep-fried ones. I have made these patties on iron griddle/tawa. They have a nice crust with a soft inside.They look very beautiful along the sides. The hues of lavender and green from onions and cilantro are lovely to look at. The flavors are very simple and mild. When you are making this sandwich recipe for kids, you can skip the green chilies in the potato patty.

Toasting the Bread, Not the Sandwich

When you make sandwiches with coleslaw, toasting the sandwich would cause it to disintegrate and become soppy. So lightly toast the bread first, and butter it properly. Then proceed to stuff the sandwich.

Make Subs or Burgers

Let’s see how to make the aloo tikki recipe that you can have as is or make sandwiches like I did. If you have burger buns, this recipe will yield 4 big patties. The aloo tikki burgers look extremely irresistible. You could also make subs with the same elements.
