How We Made It?
We prepared aloo tikkis using these instant mashed potatoes. The primary reason why we decided to prepare tikkis is to gauge the texture in a better way. For our review process, we followed the below mentioned steps:
- We started by adding in ½ cup of the dry potato flakes.
- Then slowly and gradually we added warm water until it turned into a mashed potato dough-like consistency.
- The tikki was seasoned using basic ingredients – cumin, salt and red chili powder. We used Orika’s red chili powder here.
We cooked them on Vinod’s non-stick tawa using a small amount of ghee.
We chose not to season the tikki with too much masalas as we wanted to examine the actual flavor of the potato.
We found this instant mashed potato to be super convenient. To rehydrate these potatoes all you need is to add some warm water. We really appreciate how within a second a perfect potato dough was formed.
Not to forget, shaping the aloo tikkis using these potatoes was super easy.
Fresh and starchy! These instant mashed potatoes taste excellent. It does not have any off-putting or stale taste.
Moving on, let’s talk about the texture. The raw potato flakes were thin, crisp and free from any moisture. As we added warm water, these became slightly sticky and starchy (which is a basic characteristic of potatoes).
- Super quick way to get mashed potatoes.
- Easy to prepare.
- Can be used in a variety of dishes.
- Fresh and starchy.
