  • 1 cup thick curd
  • 15 nos baby potatoes
  • 3/4 cup big onion cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup capsicum cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • oil to fry

Spice mix:


  • Pressure cook baby potatoes for 3 whistles it should be cooked soft but not mushy. Peel the skin and prick holes with a fork or toothpick.
  • My potatoes were big so I cut them into half. You need not do this if its small. Get ready with all your ingredients. To a mixing bowl add hung curd.
  • Now add the spice mix listed under 'spice mix' in ingredients list. Add oil. Mix well. Marinate for 30 mins.
  • Add required salt. Add cubed onion, capsicum and potatoes.
  • Mix well, finally add lemon juice. Take your skewers. I used my metal skewer which came with my oven.
  • Insert the veggies alternatively. Toast on tawa until golden brown.
  • Drizzle oil, turn over in between and slowly cook so that it is evenly cooked on both sides.
  • Serve Aloo Tikka hot with green chutney, lemon wedges and onions.


  • I have used baby potatoes, you can use normal potatoes too. Pressure cook accordingly and cut into small cubes.
  • I didn't have black salt so used regular table salt. You can add black salt if you have.
