Veg Aloo tikki Burger with less oil

Burgers are loved by all whether kids or adults. And if we make patties with goodness of veggies and less oil, then nobody can stop on one. I have tried to include as much vegetables so as to make it more healthy and also delicious. They are more Indian style that is full of Spices and masala. You can make it vegan and gluten free by opting for right kind of buns for burgers but Aloo Tikki/ Patty is vegan and gluten free.



There is always complain about Potato while making tikkis. My solution is that when you boil your potatoes, Don’t let it sit in hot boiling water. Remove them from water in plate once they are boiled. Grate them when they are warm and then let it come to room temperature. If you do so then there will be no need to add any cornstarch or bread-crumbs.


For Aloo tikki/ Patty

  • 2-3 large grated potatoes boiled
  • 1 1/2 cup Steamed vegetables

I have included green peas, carrots, french beans, broccoli, capsicum, corns

  • 1 tbsp ginger and green chilli crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder/ paprika
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • salt to taste

For Assembly –

{ For these three items-  opt accordingly vegan or gluten free}

  • Burger buns
  • 1-2 tsp of butter
  • 2 Tsp mayonnaise
  • few lettuce leaves
  • 1 thinly sliced tomato
  • 1 thinly sliced onion
  • tomato ketchup
  • Cilantro chutney


For Aloo tikki

Wash your hands properly. In a big bowl mix grated boiled potatoes and steamed vegetables. It’s the time to add in spices and masala. Add cumin powder, paprika, garlic powder, garam masala, chaat masala, ginger and green chili crushed and lastly but most important salt to taste. Try to mess broccoli between your fingers and other vegetables. let few chunks come as whole as it gives bite and little crunch to your patty. Roll big lemon sized balls and press in center to give shape of a patty. Patty size should be big or small depending on size of your buns.


Now to cut down on oil, i have not deep fried my patties. And to further cut down on oil, a very nice non- stick skillet is needed. Can you believe with shown tsp of oil, I was able to crisp both sides of my patties. See nice crisp layer on both sides. I like to cook lightly for few seconds my buns on both sides with little butter.


You can enjoy your patty with cilantro dip with a cup of coffee also. And this can be given as lunch box to kids. Ahh..  I just love them.


Now the assembling part of your burger. You can become creative and make as little or as much layers of dips, lettuce, mayonnaise and freshly cut veggies. Enjoy your burger full of veggies and less oil.


It’s really Healthy as it contains lots of vegetables and less oil.

  • It has all the health benefits of steamed vegetables.
  • Steamed broccoli — Broccoli is high in many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin Cvitamin K, iron and potassium. It also contains more protein than most other vegetables. Broccoli can be enjoyed both raw and cooked, but recent research shows that gentle steaming provides the most health benefits.
  • Carrots are a particularly good source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin Kpotassium and antioxidants. They are weight loss friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.
  • Green peas are a great source of bone-building vitamin K and manganese. They will boost your levels of folate – a micronutrient that is crucial for heart health and foetal development – and their significant store of vitamin C supports your immune system.


  • Many vegetables which your kid doesn’t like,mash them nicely so they cannot take them out.
  • You can add beetroot, Yams, sweet potato and any root vegetables.
  • If your potato mix has more moisture then add flatten thin rice, it absorbs water very nicely. And will give a crisp outer layer.
  • If you don’t have flatten rice add little cornstarch.
