Potato Stuffed Sandwich
This is one easy dish no kid or adult is ever going to refuse...
Potato - 2 medium or 4 small
Onion - 1 cup chopped small
Ginger - 1" piece
Green Chili - 2 sliced
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Jeera /Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - a small bunch
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Bread - 4 to 6 Slices
In a saute pan heat oil and add the jeera, onion, ginger, green chili and fry till the onions sweat and become pink in color. Add salt, turmeric powder, potatoes and cover and cook till the potatoes are done on low heat.You can also microwave the potatoes with salt to speed up the process. Make sure that the potatoes are cooked just right that they are still soft yet firm enough that they don't crumble on touch but can be mashed on pressing down with a spoon. Lightly mash some of the potatoes. Remove the chili slices before continuing.
Take two slices of bread and spread about 3 tsp of the mixture on one of the slices. Place the other slice on top of the mixture. I used a sandwich maker at this point. I used a drop of oil on either side of the sandwich when placing it on the sandwich maker. Just need to wipe the sandwich holder for that. You can also use a regular tava with a drop of oil on either side of the sandwich, turn the sandwich from one side to another until it is golden brown. Remove from heat once the other side is golden brown too.
The sandwich is now ready to be served.
This Sandwich goes to Deepa of "Simple Home cooking" blog's event Cooking for kids-Potato and this event was started by Sharmi of Neivedyam.
