Popular Aloo Tikki Burger Recipe

Comments

Aloo Tikki Burgers are extremely popular veg burgers between all ages of people, especially kids. But as a parent, we try to keep our children away from popular McDonald’s aloo tikki burger or veg burgers from any fast food joint.

There are two primary reasons we avoid our kids to eat these burgers:

  1. The burger is made of all-purpose flour (Maida) and is not so healthy.
  2. Eating a traditional burger means making your hands dirty with sauces and patties popping out of the burger.

But it’s just not possible to keep saying NO to children. Isn’t it. I have explained this in my article about developing healthy eating habits.

In today’s aloo tikki burger recipe, we will solve both of these problems. You will see the traditional burger recipe in an all-new avatar.

Popular Aloo Tikki Burgers

Aloo Tikki Burger started getting popular, much before McDonald’s entered the Indian market in 1990. After McDonald ventured, Aloo Tikki Burger became their topmost selling burger. For a vegetarian family, this is the most popular veg burger they have been eating for years now.

But today we will change the way you have been eating your burgers for years.

 

I have curated the list of recommended tools and ingredients for baking. I recommend only tried and tested products that have given satisfactory results in my kitchen.

Healthy Aloo Tikki Burger Recipe

So the changes in the traditional veg burger recipe. We will first replace the all-purpose burger buns with homemade whole wheat buns. We will add wheat bran in our burger buns to improve its health benefits.

Let’s make our Aloo Tikki Burger

In a bowl mix yeast, honey, and lukewarm water and keep it aside until yeast froths. In another bowl, dissolve flax seed powder in 2 tbs lukewarm water. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

 

Yeast and Flax seed for aloo tikki burger

In a mixing bowl take whole wheat flour and salt. Add activated yeast solution and flax seed powder solution. Start kneading the dough by adding water to it.

Make a soft, smooth and little sticky dough. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and knead the dough again for 5 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl and let it rest until doubles in volume.

Aloo Tikki Burger Dough before proofing

Once dough doubles in volume, punch it to release the air.

TIP: Be gentle with the dough, else you will end up tearing the gluten structure developed so far.

Now divide the dough into four equal parts (approximately 70 gm each). Dust the surface lightly with flour and roll each dough ball into a circular disc of ½ inch.

Notes

Don’t forget to brush the burgers with milk before baking as it provides the moisture to the crust while baking.
Always brush your baked bread with oil or butter as soon as they are out from oven. It helps to soften the crust.
If you feel your burger are browning fast while baking, cover them with aluminium foil and continue to bake.
You can prepare these burgers with your choice of cutlet.
If you don’t have wheat bran then add 2 tbs of wheat flour extra. Rest recipe will remain same.
To prepare the flax seed powder, grind the flax seeds to powder. No need to roast before grinding.
While baking aloo tikka burgers, use both rods (top and bottom).
To bake these burgers in Microwave convection, bake at 180 degree Celsius for 25 min.

    • Ritu,

      Let the first rise happen at room temperature. Then shape the buns, cover them and keep in the refrigerator for the second rise. In the morning you can bake and pack.
