Sweet Potato Cutlet


Sweet potato cutlet / tikki is an easy, delicious and great snack for the evening. Also you can prepare it for kids snacks for the  tiffin. This one I made from the left over boiled potatoes. You can cook the sweet potatoes in pressure cooker with little salt and water for 3-4 whistles in medium flame.


  • Sweet potato – 2
  • Onion – 1, finely chopped
  • Rice flour – 1 tablespoon
  • Bengal gram flour / besan – 2 tablespoon
  • Red chilly powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Green chilly – 1, finely chopped
  • Ginger – 1/4 teaspoon, finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves – 1 tablespoon, chopped finely
  • salt to taste


  1.  Peel the skin of cooked sweet potatoes and mash it well without any lumps.
  2. Add finely chopped onions, coriander leaves, ginger and green chilly to the finely mashed sweet potato. Add salt, chilly powder, gram flour and rice flour.
  3. Mix everything well to form a dough. Take a lemon sized dough, make a smooth ball and flatten it to form medium thick cutlets.
  4. Heat oil in a pan, and shallow fry the cutlets both sides on low heat until golden brown. Serve it with ketchup.
