Potato Sandwich

The most filling, easy and made with regular ingredients is what I could associate potato sandwich with. Pack it for tiffin for school, serve it for breakfast or for tea time snack, include it in Party or picnic menu - they never loose their charm. It's always a hit. 

Served with some tomato chilly sauce they are perfect to tickle the taste bites. Here is how I make it. 


For the potato filling

  1. 1 1/2 cups of boiled and mashed potatoes
  2. 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds 
  3. 2 tbsp of finely chopped onions
  4. 1 tsp of finely chopped ginger
  5. 1/2 tsp of chilly powder
  6. 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
  7. A pinch of asafoetida 
  8. A tbsp of finely chopped coriander leaves
  9. 1 tbsp of oil
  10. Salt to taste
For the sandwich
  1. 6 pieces of bread
  2. Butter as required 

  • In a pan heat up oil. Add in cumin seeds and wait for it to start sizzling. Reduce the heat to medium low.
  • Add the onions and ginger. Sprinkle salt. Sauté it until the onions turn tender. 
  • Now add the turmeric powder, asafoetida and chilly powder. Quickly stir it and add mashed potatoes and coriander leaves . Mix it all well. Cook for about two minutes and turn off the heat.
  • Sandwich the required masala in between two bread slices. Apply butter on both sides of the sandwich.
  • Heat a thick bottom skillet / tava . Once hot, Place the sandwich on it and apply pressure using a spatula . Cook for about a minute and then flip. Apply pressure using the spatula and cook for another minute.
  • Remove it from the heat and serve hot with some ketchup.
  1. The filling should be more paste like with minimum water content. Else the bread would get soggy.
  2. I used red chilly powder to avoid bitting into green chillies. You could use green chillies if you wish to.


  1. Simple yet delicious and filling sandwich.

  2. I feel like grabbing that plate and munching on all those sandwiches...
