The desi answer to pre-fabricated burgers! Lightly buttered bread plays host to crisp and sumptuous potato tikkis, crisp lettuce and juicy carrots, with a splash of tomato ketchup too, making the Potato Tikki Sandwich a delicious meal-on-the-go. The use of green peas adds streaks of its nutty texture to the potato mix, while nigella seeds and amchur powder impart a tantalizing flavour. You will love the burst of flavours in the tikki, as well as the unique mouth-feel of crisp tikkis sandwiched between the softest of soft breads.

For The Potato Tikkis
1 cup boiled , peeled and mashed potatoes
2 tbsp ghee
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tbsp finely chopped green chillies
3/4 cup boiled and mashed green peas
1 tbsp dried mango powder (amchur)
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
1/2 tsp nigella seeds (kalonji)
salt to taste
2 tbsp cornflour
oil for deep-frying

Other Ingredients
10 slices brown bread , lightly buttered
5 tsp tomato ketchup
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup shredded lettuce


For the potato tikkis

  1. Heat the ghee in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add the green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the cornflour, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring continuously.
  4. Remove from the flame and allow the mixture to cool completely.
  5. Once cooled, add the cornflour and mix well.
  6. Divide the mixture into 5 equal portions and roll each portion into a flat round tikki.
  7. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry, a few tikkis at a time on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Place 2 buttered bread slices on a clean, dry surface with the buttered side facing upwards.
  2. Spread ½ tsp of tomato ketchup on both the buttered bread slices.
  3. Place the potato tikki on a bread slice and put carrot and lettuce evenly over it.
  4. Sandwich it using another bread slice with the buttered-tomato ketchup side facing downwards.
  5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 to make 4 more sandwiches. Serve immediately.
