There is something brand new happening at McDonald’s every day. With the past year being the one that McDonald’s India (West and South) really went all in and launched 14 new products. While we love all that new at McDonald’s and we also believe the more choices there are, the better, but some things in life cannot be replaced or compared to anything new and exciting that the world might be talking about.
Likewise in McDonalds, there are some things here that speak to every customer’s nostalgic side, having a feeling that is similar to home associated with it. You might also have something that essentially defines the experience all your visits to your favorite restaurant offers you.
The McAloo Tikki burger is one such thing. The delicious aloo patty inside soft burger buns is a treat to the desi soul inside all of us. The best part about the burger is the nuttiness that comes from the green peas inside it. The tangy sweet tomato mayo brings the right amount of spice and a kick to the burger making it lip smacking good. To top it all up you have fresh tomatoes to bring a fresh juiciness and tang to each of the bites of your burger. Its utter perfection.
The McAlooTikki burger was first introduced by McDonald’s India, but it has since become quite a legend. It is even used as an index to measure economic well-being for research! Apart from these, McDonald’s was urged to take it to other countries like Singapore and the Middle East, due to the tremendous feedback it received here in India. Even the Australians want a piece of the Indian goodness, making them vote for our very own McAloo Tikki burger to bring to the McDonald’s there.
India has truly been in love with the McAlootikki since the very beginning. McDonald’s wanted to bring to India something that the people would love and were fond of. One thing that couldn’t have been ignored even by the experts at that time was the love the people of India have for street food. So the idea begun to bring the king of street food, Aloo Tikki onto the McDonald’s menu. Rest as they say, is history.
What has kept the burger still going strong at McDonald’s is not just the genius of its recipe and design but also the simplicity with which it captures the essence of all the essential Indian flavour. With the goodness of potatoes, an Indian staple, peas and a sauce made especially to bring a sweet undertone into the burger, it was bound to become an all-time favorite of the masses. And if you still aren’t impressed, it’s as light on the pocket as its freshly made buns are. You can bring back memories by visiting your nearest McDonald’s and ordering yourself the good ol’ classic burger next time as a delectable snack with coffee or tea, or even made a meal out of it by adding fries and coke. The choice is yours.
