Aloo Tiki with Apple-Tamarind Chutney #BrunchWeek #Sponsored

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Here we are at day three of an amazing week of recipes to inspire your brunch menus from appetizers to libations.

Many, many thanks to Terri of Love and Confections and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures for coordinating, wrangling, managing, and inspiring all of us!

You can go to this post to read more about the sponsors, the prizes, and to enter the giveaway!

This recipe includes ingredients from a few of our event sponsors: Ranier Fruit, Dixie Crystals, and Nielsen-Massey. So grateful for the inspiration! But, you can use whatever apples, sugar, and lemon extract you have on-hand.

Aloo tiki, potato cutlets, are a tasty street food that are served with a sweet-savory chutney. They are a family favorite at any time of day, but I love serving them as a hearty brunch starter.


Aloo Tiki
  • 6-8 small golden potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1 t minced garlic
  • 1 egg, beated

Apple-Tamarind Chutney

  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and diced (I used the Lady Alice apples from Rainier Fruit)
  • 1/4 t ground coriander seed
  • 1/4 t cumin ground
  • 1/4 t garam masala
  • 3 to 4 tamarind pods, peeled but with seeds intact
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar (I used Dixie Crystals)
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice or 1 t lemon extract (I used the Nielsen-Massey lemon extract)
  • 1/3 C water
  • 1 T olive oil


Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them.

Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. Pan-fry for about a minute on each side, until golden brown. Serve hot.

Apple-Tamarind Chutney
Heat oil in a small sauce pan on medium. Lightly fry spices until aromatic, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in water, bring to boil.

Add apple, tamarind pods, sugar, salt, and lemon extract. Mix well. Reduce to low heat. Stirring occasionally. Once the tamarind loses its shape, remove the seeds. Simmer uncovered until thickened, approximaely 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool and thicken for another 10 to 15 minutes.

To Serve...place your potato cakes on individual serving plates. Spoon chutney over the top.
