2 Meanwhile, grate the potato and refrigerate it until needed.

3 Heat a large pan with 1 tsp oil and sauce the spices and dal for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir in the chopped coriander

4 Add the cornflour and salt to the grated potato; mix to combine to form a non-sticky dough.

5 To shape the aloo tiki, take a small portion of the potato mixture in between your palms. Roll it and gently flatten it with your fingers. If the potato mixture seems sticky, moisten your fingers with a teaspoon of oil.

6 Make a well in the centre of the potato ball, fill in a teaspoon of dal stuffing. Close the edges. Gently flatten the balls once again to get the thickness of an inch or so. Similarly, shape all the patties. 

7 Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat and shallow fry the aloo tikkis in small batches over low-medium heat. Drain on paper towels.

8 To make the yoghurt, combine all the ingredients. Serve with the aloo tikkis.
