Aloo Mango Tikkis

I have always been a fan of Mint and mango combination be it in drinks or dessserts. So this time I thought I why not try appetizers with the same combination. This contest was a good reason for me to give it a shot... The end result is a unique taste which I loved. My frineds loved it too and some thought it takes a wile to appreciate this taste.. so here goes the recipe.
