How to make potato sandwich recipe
1. Add oil to a pan and heat, add cumin and let it splutter,add ginger paste or grated ginger and fry till you smell good. Add sliced onions and green chilies, fry till they turn lightly golden, while the onions fry , peel and mince raw potato or mash boiled potato, whichever you prefer.
2. Add minced raw potato or mashed boiled potato. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Skip this step if using boiled potatoes. If using raw mined potatoes, add water just enough to cover the potatoes.Cover and cook till the potatoes are soft cooked and tender. Since they are mined they cook faster.
4. Add turmeric,fennel powder,pepper powder(optional), amchur, garam masala and red chili powder. I added chili powder later, since i forgot.
5. Fry everything well till you get a nice aroma of the masala and the fennel seeds powder. Everything should blend well, potatoes soft cooked and fairly dry.
6. Smear butter or oil on one side of the bread for crust. on the inner side, spread the curry in a thin layer, sprinkle some coriander leaves if you like.
7. If you do not have a toaster, you can toast in on a tawa on both the sides. Gently flip the bread else the curry will mess up. If making in toaster. Cover with another slice and toast following the manufacturers guidelines.
Serve potato sandwich for breakfast or snack.
