The Aloo Tikki (aka The Indian Potato Fritter) is a very popular starter or snack in the Northern India state of Punjab. Our vegan version is a combination of potato, peas, green chillies and Indian spices, however the beauty of this dish is that you can combine any potato and vegetable combination that you like.
