Radish Greens Aloo Tikki (Potato Patties) ~ Day 120

Aloo tikki made with power-packed, healthy, and delicious radish greens.  When I saw the fresh bunch of  greens at the farmers market for a dollar, I couldn't resist buying it.  Loaded with nutrients and vitamins, radish greens are excellent in  dals, sambar, and stir-fries as well. 

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Yields: 15 patties

  • Potatoes - 3, large, boiled 
  • Radish greens - 1 cup, finely chopped with stalks
  • Oil - 2 tbsp + more for frying the patties
  • Ginger - 1 tsp, grated
  • Nigella seeds / kalonji - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Red chili powder - 1 tsp
  • Anardana / pomegranate powder - 3/4 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves / cilantro - 2 tbsp, finely chopped

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet.  Add nigella seeds and fry for 10 seconds.  Add the chopped radish green and saute until soft.
  2. Add the mashed potatoes, ginger, and all the spices along with salt.  Mix well and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the coriander leaves.  Let it cool to the touch.
  3. Take a lemon sized potato mixer and make a thick round pattie.  Make all the patties and keep them aside.
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle.  Drizzle 1 tbsp oil and shallow fry the patties (4 or 5 at a time) until the bottom turns golden brown.    Flip and drizzle more oil around edges and fry until golden brown.  Repeat the process with all the patties.
  5. Serve hot with green and sweet chutney.
