  • To begin making the Tandoori Aloo Tikka Recipe, get all the ingredients prepped and ready.

  • Into a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients for Tandoori Aloo in a bowl except the boiled potatoes and ghee and stir them well until combined.

  • Add the boiled baby potatoes into it and allow it to marinate for 30 minutes.

  • Heat a tablespoon of oil or ghee in a wok or a skillet, add the tandoori aloo mixture.

  • Sauté over high heat for four to five minutes, stirring occasionally and roast the potatoes until all the marination thickens and forms a coat over the aloo.

  • The potatoes/ aloo should be well crusted and golden brown.

  • Once done, check the salt and spice and adjust to suit your taste of the Tandoori Aloo. Keep this aside in the same pan. 

  • Next step is the give the Tandoori Aloo Tikka a smoked flavour. Place a large piece of coal on the gas flame and allow it to turn red hot.

  • Place a katori in the center of the tandoori aloo tikka pan, place the red hot coal in the katori/ cup and spoon a little bit of ghee over the coal. It will begin to emit smoke. Cover the pan and allow the tandoori aloo tikka to get the smoky flavours.

  • After about 30 seconds, remove the coal cup and the smoked Tandoori Aloo tikka is ready.
