Amla and Beetroot Tikki

Sweet and tangy potato cakes flavoured with beetroot and Indian gooseberries

Hari says

These are a great way to use fresh beetroot and gooseberries or 'amla' to make a wonderful alternative to aloo tikki's. The vivid purple colour looks amazing on the plate but more then that they have a delicate sweetness combined with the sharp, tang of the amla which is just delicious. They taste fresh and new perfect for a summer side dish. They can also be coated in chickpea flour and fried too.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • juice for half lemon

  • 2 beetroots, boiled and mashed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 amla (indian gooseberries), grated
  • 3 potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • oil for frying
  • pinch of fresh coriander

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onion and sauté till lightly browned.
  2. Stir in the mashed beetroot and saute until the mixture dries out a little.
  3. Add the chilli, chilli powder, lemon juice and garam masala and stir through.
