Masala Aloo Open Sandwich

As promised, this is one of my favorites during summer vacations. As a kid, I loved eating those pretty desi grilled potato sandwiches, with an occasional addition of cheese. Over the years, I lost my liking for the same, monotony maybe. And since then, I have enjoyed these super crispy masala aloo open sandwiches. It is like all other things I like to make, not cumbersome at all – Masala Aloo Open Sandwich.

Masala aloo toast (1)Masala aloo toast (3)
Ingredients –

  • Potatoes – 2 medium
  • Onions – 1 small
  • Green chilly – 1 small
  • Coriander – a few sprigs
  • Salt – to taste
  • Butter – to cook
  • Bread – 2 pcs
  • Your choice of cheese spread – 2 tsp (I used Veeba’s cheese and mushroom sauce)

Method –

  • Wash the potatoes thoroughly. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the potatoes and a few tablespoons of water. Microwave for 6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, peel and chop the onions, and let them soak in cold water to get rid of the staunch smell.
  • Chop the green chillies finely.
  • Peel the potatoes when cool.
  • Mash them till smooth. Add the onions, chillies, and salt and mix well.
  • Take a piece of bread and smear with the cheese spread. Spread the potato mash evenly.
  • Heat a non-stick tawa and smear some butter. Cook the toast on both sides equally, preferably on a low flame to make the toast nice and crispy.
  • Do the same for the second toast.
  • Best savored with ketchup or tamarind chutney.

You can also make this mash a day before and store for future use.
Happy Chomping 🙂
