About Cheesy Aloo Tikkis (Kids ' Lunchbox Special) Recipe

Ingredients to make Cheesy Aloo Tikkis (Kids ' Lunchbox Special)

  • potatoes - 4 - 5
  • Cheddar Cheese - 2 tbspns, grated
  • cottage cheese / Paneer - 2 tbspns
  • cornflour - 2-3 tbspns
  • Oregano Flakes /pepper Powder - 3/4 th tspn
  • salt - to taste
  • Refined Veg oil - 5-6 tbspns for shallow frying

How to make Cheesy Aloo Tikkis (Kids ' Lunchbox Special)

  1. Wash the potatoes well and pressure cook for ten minutes on sim.
  2. Cool the cooked potatoes and take off the skin.
  3. Mash the potatoes and add the cornflour, 2 tbspns should be fine, if the potatoes are too mushy, add another tbspn.
  4. Add salt to taste and mix well.
  5. Mix the grated cheese and paneer, adding a little salt, oregano flakes / pepper powder.
  6. Shape into tikkis, make a hollow in the middle and add a little of the the grated cheese and paneer mixture into it, close and shape up.
  7. Dust with a little extra cornflour and pat dry and press them lightly on the sides to make sure that the cheesy mixture does not ooze out while frying.
  8. Heat the oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry the tikkis in batches, till golden brown on both sides.
  9. Drain them on a paper napkin to soak up the excess oil.
  10. Pack in aluminium foil or place just as in the lunchbox with ketchup sachets on the side.

My Tip:

You can cook the potatoes and shape your tikkis with the mixture inside, the previous evening. You can keep them in a covered box in the refrigerator and simply fry them the next morning while your child is getting ready to go to school. Also, you can play around with the mixture, adding your choice of grated vegetables along with the cheese-paneer mixture if you want to make the tikkis more nutritious and healthy. I like to leave them this way, because the kids too enjoy a break from the routine stuff one normally packs for them.
