Where does all the spiciness & flavor of the Teekha Murgh What does ‘tikki’ mean? Is this an ‘Aloo tikki’?

Aloo tikki is a snack originating from the Indian subcontinent; in North Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi preparation, it is made out of boiled potatoes, peas, and various curry spices. “Aloo” means potato, and the word “tikki” means a small cutlet or croquette in Hindi and Marathi. Since we are using potatoes we can call this aloo tikki as well.

Are the oats cooked before making the tikkis/cutlets?

No. We’ve only mixed them well with boiled water before making the tikkis. Mixing them in boiled water is important so that it sticks well with the whole batter.

Can we bake these tikkis/cutlets in an oven?

Yes, you may, although the taste wouldn’t be similar to frying. Apply some oil on both sides and preheat the oven to around 180 C and bake until it turns brown. You may flip the cutlet in between and continue baking.
