Aloo tikki burger is a delicious burger made with fried potato patties stuffed inside burger bun.
Burger, Pizza's are everyone's favorite. Specially kids go crazy for these junk foods. My little one loves chicken popcorn and demands it often. I too crave for burger often. Since these junk foods are not good for health, i try to stay away from it. Most of the time i make it at home for my little one.
Somedays i turn potatoes into popcorn chicken and try to cheat my little one. There are days when she don't even finds it. Someday's i get on a mission and try to replicate those popular fast food recipes.
How Mcdonalds Mcaloo Tikki Burger Invented
McDonald's is a global fast food corporation that was formed in 1940 in San Bernardino, California, and incorporated in 1955 in Des Plaines, Illinois. In India, the Mc Aloo Tikki is a vegetarian burger available at McDonald's. The combination of a potato and peas patty coated in breadcrumbs with distinctive Indian spices, served with sweet tomato mayo, fresh onions, and tomatoes in a standard bun is still a favourite, not only among Indians, but also among foreigners who have experienced it
during their visit to India.
The patties are one-of-a-kind, made primarily of mashed potatoes and green peas. McDonalds; signature mcaloo tikki recipe includes a special sauce that is essentially a blend of tomato sauce and mayonnaise.
When McDonalds first came to India in 1996, the concept of adapting an international menu to local tastes and palates was foreign. That changed two years later, when this desi burger was introduced.

Ingredients for aloo tikki burger
There are two reasons why aloo tikki can fall apart. Either the boiling potato has too much moisture or there isnt any binding agent. Here are a few pointers to get you started. To soak up any excess wetness, add more bread crumbs, which will also aid in rolling the Tikki.
Poha / Aval / Flattened Rice :
Poha is just parboiled rice that has been rolled, flattened, and dried to make flakes. The thickness of the flakes varies depending on the pressure employed during the flattening process. Rice flakes are small, light, and greyish white in colour. They are around 2mm long, flat, and light.
Dried Basil :
Dried Basil is exceptional when added to tomato sauces, cold pasta salads, grilled fish, salad dressings, and roasted chicken. This product is also commonly found in marinades, stews, soups, and pesto. No preparation is necessary, just add to dish/recipe as desired.
Dried Oregano :
Oregano, sometimes known as "pizza spice," has a strong fragrance and flavour. The flavour of dried oregano is often more intense than that of fresh oregano, and it will intensify in long, slow-cooking meals.
Breadcrumbs aren't actually a binding agent. They actually aid in the retention of moisture in the potato. They will absorb moisture during the cooking process and then release it back into the potato as it cools.

1)Take poha (flattened rice) in a bowl. Add some water and soak for 5 mins, drain and squeeze off the excess water.
2)Take potatoes, boil it and peel the skin off.
3)Mash the potatoes using a masher or fork.
4)Add in the squeezed poha or flattened rice. This helps in binding the mixture and makes the patties firmer when frying.
5)Add in all the spice powders. I added basil, oregano, cumin powder, chilli powder, pepper powder, coriander powder,turmeric powder.

7)Add salt to taste
8)Add in peas. I used frozen peas which i thawed in microwave.
9)Now use a masher to mash the mixture really well.
10)Make the mixture into a thick dough like. The mixture shouldn't be soft, if it is too soft add more poha and knead.
11)Shape the mixture into patties. Make the patties little thin.
12)Put the patties in fridge for 30 mins to 1 hour.
