Baked Aloo Tikki

Aloo Tikki is an evening snack normally made stovetop. I tried baking the Tikki using same ingredients but adding Panko  bread crumbs for crispyness. 
Kids loved this version compared to the stovetop version.
Coming to the recipe...

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 
Bake Time: 20 minutes 
Serves: 3-4

Potatoes: 3 large boiled, pealed and mashed 
Peas : 1/4 cup 
Onion: 1 chopped finely 
Green chilies: 2 chopped finely 
Red chili powder: 1 tsp 
Amchur/ Dry mango powder: 1/2 tsp 
Corn starch: 1 tbsp (for binding)
Salt to taste 

Bread crumbs: 1 cup (I used Panko)

Mix all ingredients except bread crumbs really well to make a nice smooth dough.
Make a lemon size ball and press that into a Tikki shape.  Roll them in bread crumbs and Place the Tikki's on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and drizzle some oil over the Tikki's.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the Tikki's are golden brown. 
Serve hot with green chutney, sweet chutney or hot sauce.

Note: if you want to cook them stovetop, make the Tikki and place them on hot tava with some oil. Cook for 4 minutes each side. No bread crumbs needed.
