Combo platter 3 - Hot Dog Tikki Taco with Til Tomato chutney ( aloo tikki taco)

This was suppose to be my 3 day combo platter am a bit late but wanted to complete this month's BM successfully . So this is the 3 rd combo platter which is an experiment from my kitchen again . Aloo tikki's are all time fav for me and H so wanted to include them in this combo platter and also made a Aloo tikki taco with it which I loved a lot . Fusion cooking is always been my fantasy and this is a great theme to knock my brains door and create some unusual combination so came an idea to Mix up tikkis with taco.

 I  made this Hot dog Tikki Taco with the potato pattie / tikki and gave it a  sausage shape , so this a pure vegetarian Hot dog taco . It was a very delicious snack time treat for us . I made the tikkis a bit spicy but change the spice level as per your taste . They are very yummy to have when they are warm.   Lets move on to the recipe of my 3 combo platter in the series . Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#33.
