Snacks, snacks, snacks….this is what every kid keeps on hauting their Mum about. Isn’t it!  And if its a holiday this becomes more. Like any other Mum, even I keep making eatable snacks with the available veggies/ingredients in my kitchen.

This is one such recipe which I usually make, where in I take potato as the base ingredient and just add any other veggies that I have. It is so quick and straightforward to make. On top of all this, its quite easy to please my kids.

Air-fryer is a new gadget in my kitchen, so this is my first recipe in the air-fryer series of my blog. I shall add more recipes from my air-fryer from now on. I explained both methods separately with pics, have a look below.

The tikki/cutlets which are pan-fried, also used very little oil, so its guilt-free too. The air-fried version of cutlets/tikki were more crunchier when compared to the pan-fried.

You can make the patties and freeze them, just pan-fry/ air-fry them before serving. Hence, this is a Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten free, Guilt-free, Prep-Food type of starter/snack.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips mentioned at the end.

Tips:

  • Boiling the potatoes can be done, in a sauce pan on stove-top (or) in an Instant Pot (or) in an stove-top pressure cooker.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • Chat Masala can be replaced with garam masala.
  • I did not use bread crumbs for the pan-fry cutlets / tikkis. Just to have different taste.
  • You can make the patties, put them in an air-tight container and freeze them. Just pan-fry/ air-fry them before serving.
  • For the air-fryer version, you can fry for more time than mentioned, if you wish to have more crispier cutlets. 
  • These, potato corn cutlets / tikki (air-fryer & pan-fry method), stays good up to a month in the freezer.
  • The cutlets which are pan-fried, also used very little oil, so its guilt-free too.

Result:

  • The taste of these, potato corn cutlets / tikki (air-fryer & pan-fry method), is truly good with a very soft melt in mouth texture.
  • I just drizzled some sev and tomato sauce on top as a dip. 
  • The air-fried version of cutlets/tikki were more crunchier when compared to the pan-fried.
