2 potatoes, boiled and mashed

1 onion (small size), very finely chopped (2 tablespoons very finely chopped onion)

1 tablespoons cup mint & coriander leaves, finely chopped

3/4 teaspoon red chilli powder

1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

In a wide bowl, mix boiled and mashed potatoes, chopped onion, chopped mint and coriander leaves, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, amchur powder  and salt to taste ( do not add water ). Make a soft mixture ( like a soft dough).

Divide this aloo  mixture into 6 equal portions. Make round balls and flatten into round shape tikki ( like patty ).

Apply little milk evenly on both the sides of the tikki and roll it over oats. Oats should coat evenly and make  strong tikkis.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or mint chutney or tamarind chutney.
