It Is healthy & gluten Free:

Indeed, there is no gluten in this dish. In order to bind the potato patty mixture, I used gluten-free corn flour. It is therefore appropriate for a person who is gluten intolerant.

Aloo tikki is always best for vrat/fasting

The same recipe can be used on days of vrat or fasting. Use tapioca flour or singada flour instead of cornflour, breadcrumbs, rice flour, and poha to bind.

In Conclusion:

In addition to being a well-liked street snack in India, It is a multipurpose meal that showcases the nation’s extensive culinary customs. 

Aloo Tikki is a versatile food that may be eaten as a crunchy tea-time snack, turned into a delicious chaat with a variety of toppings, or combined into creative varieties like burgers and wraps. 

There are countless ways to use this versatile food. It may be modified to meet fasting or vrat needs because it is adaptable and gluten-free, making it appropriate for anyone with dietary restrictions.
