Aloo tikki is a very famous snack which all Indians love and relish with their evening tea.
Paneer- aloo tikki is very similar to the aloo tikki with a little alteration.The crispy outer part and the soft and spicy center part is a real treat to our taste buds. This version is mine and let me tell you, however and which ever way you make tikkis they do turn out very well. These use the technique of shallow frying to get the crispy outer part and the soft center with the paneer and aloo mixture. As we follow shallow frying you can keep the guilt ghost at peace 🙂
This recipe is very simple and very fast. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together and form a round shape and shallow fry them till golden brown.
These are usually served with dips or chutnies of your choice 🙂
