Tikkas are an all-time favourite dish all across Indian restaurants. There are many theories about its origin, but the popularity and deliciousness of this dish is indisputable. It is normally made with chicken and meat dipped in a creamy sauce. But who said tikkas are only meant for non-vegetarians? Picture this : Aloo chunks dipped in the yogurt paste and mélange of spices, marinated and cooked in a fiery tandoor for an aromatic, smokey and juicy flavour. Slurping, right?

Tandoori Aloo tikka is a delicious vegetarian North Indian recipe that can be a perfect alternative to chicken tikka. The unique smoky flavour that is achieved by grilling the potatoes and by adding them in spiced yogurt and aromatic spices is what makes this dish so irresistible. The yogurt sauce has a hint of sweetness and a bit of tangy flavour too, but you can still taste the hotness of the spices. The cream adds the richness and brings it all together.
Here's how you can make Tandoori Aloo Tikka :
To begin with the recipe, all you have to do is boil the baby potatoes and add hung curd into it. Then add all the spices together and mix well. Marinate the mixture for at least 2 hours and then sauté over high heat for about 10 minutes. The last step is to roast the potatoes until the marination thickens and forms a coat over the potatoes. Put burnt coal in a katori and place it in the center of the dish to add smokey tandoori flavour into the dish. Pair it up with garlic naan, butter naan or any other breads for your choice. Serve with mint chutney and onion rings.
