Quick Eats- Potato Masala Sandwich


I loved these sandwiches as a kid! I remember my mom making me these delicious sandwiches on nights when it would be just me, my brother and her....if my dad was traveling overseas or elsewhere on business, I would beg her to make something else for dinner than the usual Indian fare....and she would-because that's what moms do.

These are SO easy, you can also have your kids help you make them.....here's what you need to make these.



Ingredients:

For the Masala Potatoes:

4 boiled potatoes,Ginger-Chili Paste,salt to taste,1 tsp garam masala, 1tsp Aamchoor powder,
1 tbsp finely chopped green coriander leaves/cilantro, 1 onion- chopped finely
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds

mash the potatoes. In a pan, heat the oil, add the cumin and let it sizzle. Add the ginger-chili paste, and the onions along with the coriander leaves. Cook for a couple of minutes, and add the potatoes. Add the rest of the seasonings and stir well. Let it cool and set aside.

Green Chutney:

1 cup Coriander/Cilantro leaves
1-2 green chilies
1 inch piece ginger
1 tsp- cumin seeds
Salt, sugar, lemon juice to taste

Blend all the ingredients and form a paste.

To assemble:

You will need bread slices, butter/margarine to taste

On a piece of bread, spread some chutney on one side, add the cooled potato masala, and place another piece of bread on top. Spread some butter/margarine on both sides and grill till well done! Serve hot with more chutney and ketchup and a hot cuppa tea!

Simple, isn't it??? Now go and make some! :)

Remember to send in JFI-Paneer entries by the end of the month!

this looks scrumptious- we have smthg similar in pakistan which we call a 'flying saucer', you put the potatoes between two pieces of bread and put it in the contraption that looks like a flying saucer, and place it above the flame. out comes a sandwich (like the ones that comes out of sandwich makers). i love your photo of this. best wishes, shayma

GET TO KNOW: BLACK CUMIN SEEDS

black cumin seeds = royal cumin seeds = kala jeera = shahi jeera = saah jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min Notes: Indian cooks use this spice in many of their curries and tandoori dishes. It's darker and sweeter than ordinary cumin. To bring out its nutty flavor, it helps to toast the seeds briefly before using them. Substitutes: cumin (Not as sweet as black cumin.) OR nigella
