I have made these potato sandwiches with homemade whole wheat bread. I generally make a loaf of bread or pav/buns once a week. These get used up in making various snacks like sandwiches and sometimes desserts like a bread pudding. The pav or rolls are served with usal (sprouts curry) or Pav bhaji.

I have used the same recipe for the spiced potato stuffing masala, which I always make for Aloo paratha.

These potato sandwiches can be served with tomato ketchup or coriander chutney. They do make for a good breakfast/brunch or snack option.

How to make potato sandwich

1. Peel, mash the boiled potatoes and then add all the spices, herbs and salt. Mix well.

5. in a pre heated grill, place the potato sandwich carefully with the buttered side facing down, making sure your hands don’t touch the grill (be careful when doing this. If you cannot do this then just skip the above step. Instead spread butter once the sandwiches are grilled). Now spread butter on the top side which is facing you.

  8. Hi Mrs. Dassana Amit,

    Being very honest i dont know the ABCD of cooking.

    But ever since i accidently surfed through your blog and went through your reciepes i became your fan. I thought of giving it a try and started cooking based on your reciepes which are very simple to follow and easy as its all wel illustrated with photos through out the whole process. I have been desperatly trying to find time to sit down and comment on all your dishes that i have tried but due to time constrain it never happened. so today i finally thought of sitting down and letting you know that i..sorry not just i but even my wife(i recently got married and like wise my wife too doesnt know cooking that well) are your die hard fans.

    Btw i tried this sandwich…..and trust me it was simply awesome just like all your fabolous dishes.

    Thanks for your love, care,effort and time that you have taken and put forward for this blog. It really helps amateur cooks like us.

    Humble request : Please dont ever stop cooking as well as experimenting on new dishes and dont forget to upload them.

    Thanking you
    Yours truly
