Instant minty potato toast (Pudinewale alu toast)




Sandwich is one of the favorite street food of Mumbai. We love to make them at home too and pack them in our lunch box. Sandwiches can be filled with so many different veggies, fruits and its preserves. But mashed or boiled potatoes with variety of masalas is popular with vegetarians.When these potato sandwiches are grilled they tastes and smells great.
In Mumbai, people love to buy grilled potato stuffed sandwiches as these are easy to carry while commuting, tastes great, are filling, stays well unlike others which tend to become soggy after a while. These sandwiches can be held in hand easily without worrying about things spilling out.

The filling in this sandwich is very easy to make and very basic. If you don't find instant potatoes you can steam them in rice cooker and mash them. Let it cool down a bit before you use them in the filling.
If you don't have electric toaster, you can toast them in the rice cooker too.

Ingredients-




  • 1/2 cup (100 ml) Instant mashed potato flakes
  • 75 ml water
  • 1/2 tsp dried mint powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala or pulav masala or sandwich masala (I have used goda masala/ black masala )
  • 8 bread slices (If your bread is large then cut them into pieces to fit into the toaster)
  • 4 tsp tomato ketchup or any tomato based sauce
  • Salt 3/4 tsp

Optional ingredients-
  • Butter
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper pd (freshly ground peppercorns) or chilli pd
  • 1 small onion chopped fine (3 tbsp)-adding this gives a nice crunch in this sandwich.
  • 4 cheese slices

Tip- You can add 2 tsp Instant peanut powder masala into the filling instead of garam masala or chilli pd.

Making the potato filling-

Add water to instant mashed potato and mix.
To this add onion, mint powder, garam masala, salt and pepper.





 Assembling the sandwiches-
Do not wonder about the shape of the bread slices. I baked them in the bread machine. It is a large wheat bread.
Apply butter on one side of all the 8 bread slices.
Apply sauce on 4 of these buttered slices.




Arrange 2 tbsp potato filling on the buttered slices.
Put the cheese slice over the tomato sauce coated slices.
Take care to see that the cheese slices don't peep out of the sandwich as it will ooze out while grilling.
Cut the cheese slices to fit in.
Close the sandwiches.
You can brush the toaster plate with little butter. (sandwiches taste equally great with or without butter.
Grill the sandwiches in the toaster or grill plate. You can lock the toaster while grilling or toasting them.














Eat them with tomato sauce.





 We can use this potato filling for many other recipes. By little amount of variation in the ingredients we will create many more tasty food in this blog.
