Heat a tawa with little oil and shallow fry the patties till cooked and crispy on both ends. Once done, drain them on paper tissue to remove excess oil and serve hot with corander chutney or tamarind chutney or any sauce of your choice. Note : You can use corn starch, rice flour, bread as a binding agent to keep it's shape. The potato has to be cooled down before adding any binding agent, Otherwise the mixture becomes sticky. If you have leftover bread, soak few slices of bread in water, squeeze out excess water and add to the potatoes. Here bread is added as a binding agent. You can also coat the tikkis with breadcrumbs before frying. This makes the tikki more crisp.
