Alu Mutter Sandwich

I have become little slow in writing recipes since HE stays away for job during weekdays. So my experiments have become limited as he is not around :). This is quite simple, everyday recipe. Still I am putting it here as it happens to be one of my favorites. Both my brother and husband love it and we have had them so many times at Purohit’s in Ahmedabad. Especially, Purohit became our favorite joint during courtship days.

Makes 8 sandwiches
Preparation Time: 20 Minute
Cooking Time: 15 Minute

For stuffing
2 large potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 carrot
1 small capsicum
1 small onion
1/8 cup peas
1 tsp ginger-chili paste
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
¼ tsp garam masala
¼ tsp clove-cinnamon powder
1 tbsp grated cheese

For tampering
½ tsp oil
¼ tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp sesame seeds

Prepare a sandwich
16 slices of bread
Green chutney
Cheese Slice
Chat Masala

1. Other than potatoes, finely chop all vegetables for stuffing
2. Heat oil in skillet, add cumin and sesame seeds, when crackles add chopped veggies
3. Sauté them for about 5 minute and then add to mashed potatoes
4. Add all other spices
5. For Grilled sandwich
a. Apply green chutney on one slice
b. Put potato stuff, cheese slice and cover with another slice
c. Brush the top with butter and grill it
d. Serve hot with ketchup
6. For Regular sandwich
a. Cut the crusts off
b. Apply chutney on one slice and butter on another
c. Put potato stuff, cover the sandwich and sprinkle chat masala

This is our all time favorite sandwich and it tastes equally well with white and brown bread. Good for next day lunch and makes a complete meal with salad and juice/milkshake/coffee.
