What Wiki Says?
A potato-filled croquette called Aloo tikki is very popular in northern India and is typically served with a stew. They are mostly eaten as snacks at home and are also popularly sold by road-side vendors. In the Indian state of West Bengal, it is called alu chop as in Bangladesh. Sometimes it is called a “cutlet” and eaten plain or as a fast food variation that is served inside a hamburger bun (like a vegetarian burger). Meat croquettes called kababs are made with minced mutton. Lightly spiced beef croquettes are a popular snack and appetiser among Goan Catholics owing to their Portuguese influence, though consumption of beef is not common in India except for places like Goa and Kerala.
