Falaari Aloo Tikki | Gluten Free Potato Tikkis

Falaari aloo tikki is a very tasty and gluten-free potato tikki made with buckwheat flour, potatoes and mild spices. These tikkis are just perfect to enjoy as the guilt-free and tasty side dish during fasting.

I made this falaari aloo tikki for the Navratri thali that I did during October month on Instagram. I did plan to post all the recipes in the thali but somehow couldn’t post them. However, I do have the pictures in the draft and that’s what came to rescue when I totally forgot to cook for the theme mashed for this week.

If you are looking for a tasty and gluten-free recipe for fasting days or simply a for a delicious evening snack then these falaari aloo tikki are just perfect for you. For more healthy variations you may shallow fry them too.
