Another is a street food from India called Aloo Tikki.

Many years ago, I lived and worked in Houston. There was a vegetarian Indian restaurant nea where I worked that had this. I used to get it two or three times a week.

There are many different recipes for it.

The basics of how it is made is to mash boiled potatoes, mix in the spices, form into patties, and deep frying.
