1.
First, make the pea masala. Place a non-stick pan on medium heat and add the oil. Once it is hot, add the cumin seeds. When they start to splutter, add the onion and sauté until it becomes golden brown.
2.
Add ginger garlic paste and sauté until the raw aroma evaporates. Add the asafoetida, coriander, turmeric, red chili powder, garam masala and sauté for a minute.
3.
Add tomato and cook on a low heat for 3–4 minutes or until the masala starts leaving oil on the edges.
4.
Add the dried peas and season with salt to taste. Add 240ml water, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat as low as possible heat and simmer for 7–8 minutes.
5.
The peas will have thickened the consistency and trapped the aroma of the spices. Now, to make the aloo tikki, put the potatoes in a bowl and add amchur powder, cumin seeds, green chili, ginger, coriander and salt to taste.
6.
Add all potato flour and corn flour to the bowl and mix thoroughly, then divide into 10 equal portions and shape into patties.
7.
Heat the oil in a deep pan until 175˚C and deep-fry the patties (3-4 patties same time) until the bottoms are golden brown and crisp.
8.
For plating, pour the pea masala in a serving dish and cover with 2 aloo tikkis. Drizzle with sweet yogurt, green chutney and tamarind chutney.
9.
Sprinkle with sev, coriander and garnish with julienned radish and sliced pickled or fresh onion.

For tamarind chutney:

1.
Soak the tamarind, coriander powder, ginger powder and red chili powder in 300 ml water for a minimum of 4–5 hours and preferably overnight in a small bowl or pan.
2.
Heat the oil in a pan add soaked Tamarind mixture and cook over medium heat for 20-25 minutes. Keep stirring the mixture in regular intervals.
3.
Once the tamarind mixture starts boiling, add the jaggery, sugar, salt and cook for a further 4–5 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
4.
Stain the mixture in fine sieve to check the consistency and seasoning. Transfer the mixture in another pot and cook for another 4-5 minutes.
5.
Turn off the heat and allow it cool. When cooled, decant into an air-tight jar or container and store in the fridge.
