The McAloo Tikki:

McAloo Tikki

(McDonalds' official page has a smaller image.)

I have seen the onions, tomatoes, Aloo Tikki, and an orange coloured cream inside this burger.
I wish to know what is that cream called and what are its ingredients?

    I'm not sure.. But i think its mayonnaise with some red paprika... – Zeba Feb 5 '13 at 6:42
  • A bit of google searching suggests some kind of vegetarian mayo, yes. Ingredients could be anything in that case! – ElendilTheTall Feb 5 '13 at 7:45

They list it as “Tom Mayo” sauce on their website.Mcdelivery McAloo customisation

On further web search I find that the “Tom Mayo” means Tomato Mayonnaise only.


Hung Curd + Tomato Ketchup + pinch of Salt, Sugar and Vinger. And you are home. I tried at home and its the closest.


I cannot speak to its accuracy as I have no experience with this item or McDonald's at all outside the US, but Time In Kitchen in their recipe for a homemade version indicates:

For sauce, beat hung curd in bowl and add pinch of salt and tomato ketchup and mix well to smoothen it in order to avoid any lumps and keep it aside

Then again, according to SipputySup, it is "basically Thousand Island dressing)".

This question itself now appears on the 2nd page of google results when searching for "Aloo Tikki sauce" :-)

  • "basically Thousand Island dressing" Couldn't understand this, sorry. – Aquarius_Girl Feb 5 '13 at 10:46
  • Okay, I thought they coined the phrase themselves. Didn't know better. – Aquarius_Girl Feb 5 '13 at 10:54

    It is essentially mayonnaise mixed with tomato ketchup. I wouldn't imagine McDonald's get much fancier than that with it. – ElendilTheTall Feb 5 '13 at 12:30

    If you are actually interested in a recreation of the US-McDonalds "secret sauce" (I find it hard to imagine why), Kenki Alt's obsessively geeky Big Mac re-creation/improvement recipe contains a sub-recipe for making the sauce. aht.seriouseats.com/archives/2011/05/… – SAJ14SAJ Feb 5 '13 at 13:04

It's simple. Put tomato ketchup in a bowl then add milk cream, also known as malai in Hindi with a pinch of salt and pepper. Just mix it all together.


It's tomato ketchup, cream, mayo, salt, white pepper powder, some sweet chilli sauce or powdered sugar and chilli powder, and parsley if you like.


the orange sauce is just a mixture of mayo and ketchup


Its liquid cheess mixture of processed cheese and permezan cheese

    I don't think mayonnaise is orange. – Cascabel May 21 '14 at 16:29
  • Is there something added to the mayonnaise? – SourDoh May 23 '14 at 21:24
  • Mayonnaise color is very much a function of yolk color, and orange yolks aren't unheard off. – MSalters Sep 5 '14 at 13:50
