This time, we'll be cooking along with guest Shibu, who will be taking us through an Indian street food, Aloo Tikki.
"‘Aloo’ means potato and ‘Tikki’ mean patties, but this adds a spicey aromatic twist to the traditional hash brown. They are mostly eaten as a snack, but I sometimes use them more like a relatively healthier ‘veggie burger’ version."
If you want a tastier, healthier option, he recommends that you opt for freshly mashed potatoes rather than the instant version. If you're going fresh, boil 4-5 potatoes in a pot for ~30 min till it is cooked well and drain the water and allow to cool and peel the skin. This can be stored in the fridge for a day.
