Who doesn’t love Indian road side food? but saying this, for me road side food consisted of of all different types of chaats, vada pavs, baraf golas and chana bateta. staying in dubai, I was so used to hygiene and healthy food, I never knew about the yummy sandwiches till after I met my husband. yes, shocking for many people but true! I had never tasted a Bombay Aloo Masala style sandwich all my life.
so yesterday’s Iftar craving was just that, Bombay Aloo (Potato) Masala Sandwich. I googled a few recipes and here’s my version of it.
I have made aloo (potato) sandwiches before ofcourse; i used to slice the potatoes and place them on the bread. for the road side sandwich taste, you mash them and mix all the spices in the potato mash.
One of the recipes cooked finely chopped onions and mixed in the potato mash. Since I am not a fan of onions in my sandwich, I omitted this. you can always give it a try.
2 potatoes, boiled and mashed
½-1 cup coriander leaves, chopped
1 green chilli, chopped
Salt to taste
Chaat masala to taste
Pepper to taste
2 tomatoes, sliced
1-1½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 slices wholemeal/white bread
1. Boil and mash 2 potatoes with a fork. Add all the spices (coriander leeaves, chaat masala, salt, pepper, chilli) and give it a good mix.
2. Spread butter on two bread slices. Spread chutney on one of the buttered slices. Next, spread the potato mash liberally and evenly. Place the tomatoes slices next and top it with generous amounts of shredded cheese (yes, I love cheese!). Place the other bread slice, buttered face downwards.
