Street food has always been my favorite food. When Preeti wanted to do Street Food for Kid's Delight, I was only so glad. I can again indulge in my favorite food. I was waiting for the weekend to come so that I can make these. I had selected something else and finally ended up doing something else. From Potato Chat to Aloo Tikki Chat. Well you may ask what's difference only here you end up making the tikkis and then a chat with it.
One big thing you can experiment in chats is the fact that you can make it and twist it as you like. Though my boys are yet to start liking these sort of dishes, Konda loves and I surely have a person who never says no for Chats. So I wanted to make sure I make it for her evening snacks.

How to make Aloo Tikki
Wash and make marks on the potatoes, microwave for 7 - 8 mins. Soak in water and peel the skin. Mash well using a fork.
Then trim the sides of the bread, soak in water and squeeze away immediately.
In a bowl, take the mashed potatoes, bread, finely chopped chilies, cumin powder, coriander leaves, salt and mix well. Pinch into small balls, flatten them into small discs.
In a bowl, mix the corn flour with water and salt. Coat the patties in corn flour mix all over and then coat with bread crumbs.
Heat oil for deep fry. Gently drop the tikkis and fry on all sides.
Once you make the tikkis, freeze them so that they hold their shape. And also you can fry using oil just enough to cover the tikkis.
