Potato Tikka

When we were in London, one of our friends invited us for lunch, and prepared potato tikka. Till then, when I have potato, I always prepared dry curry or put it in some gravy, but never tried potato tikka. Now I started preparing potato tikka regularly, sometimes as a starter and sometimes as a side dish.


Potato Tikka:

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Marination time : 2 hours | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Appetizer


Potato – 1 cup + 1/2 cup (Baby potatoes preferable. As I didn’t have them handy, I used diced


Hung Curd/Sour Cream– 3 tbsp (I used Sour cream)

Pepper Powder/Chilli powder- 1/8 tsp (I used pepper powder)

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Garam Masala powder – 1/2 tsp

Tandoori Masala  – 1/2 tsp (optional)

Chat Masala – 1/2 tsp

Lemon juice / Amchur Powder – 1/4 tsp (I used Amchur Powder)

Ginger garlic paste – 1/4 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp

How to make hung curd:

Hang 1/4 cup curd in a muslin cloth or any thin cloth for an hour to make the required hung curd.


  • Par boil potatoes (I microwaved potatoes for 5 mins) and mix the rest of ingredients and keep refrigerated for 2 hours (minimum an hour)


  • Preheat the oven at 400 deg F and arrange the marinated potatoes in the baking tray and grill the potatoes for 15-18 mins, turning over the potatoes in between for even cooking



My Notes:

  • If you are having as a starter, serve it with green chutney
  • Instead of oven you can even cook it in a skillet
  • If you are using wooden skewers, immerse them in cold water for 15 min to avoid browning
