Heat a non-stick pan. Drizzle with oil. When it starts smoking, add the tikkis and drizzle some more oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes on one side . Flip it over and cook it equally on both sides.

Devour the hot tikkis with a mint-corinder chutney.

Aloo chop(tikki) is usually eaten as a side dish with lunch/dinner in Orissa. For this dish, i have substituted the potato with raw banana which is a more nutricious vegetable.
