Aloo Barley Tikki

Nutlike chewy flavour of barley mixed with potato and mint turns into a delicious snack. This soup/porridge ingredient acts as binding agent and replaces all other gluten flours for making the patty.

The stated quantity of ingredients here can give you approximately 12 pieces.


  1. Boil barley until it is just done and retains its crunchiness. I used pressure cooker and left it for 4 whistles.
  2. Boil 1 big potato until it can be mashed easily, for around 3 whistles in pressure cooker.
  3. Pat them dry. Grind rinsed mint leaves and half of barley in a mixer to a paste. No extra water is needed to do it.
  4. Mix the mashed potato and mint-barley paste well.
  5. Add rest of the barley,required salt, chilli powder, coriander powder, amchur, turmeric, corn flour,coriander leaves.
  6. There should not be extra water added at any point so that it is easy to make patties.


  1. Make round shaped patties. Heat tawa and spread around 2 spoons for oil to make 4 tikkis.
  2. Leave it for 1-2 minutes and turn the tikkis. Keep it in simmer till tikki is completely done.


  1. Tikki can be checked if the paste does not ooze out when slightly pressed on top of the patty.
