This method is good if you do not have an electric sandwich maker. You can make any grilled sandwich using this method. If you have a sandwich maker, then you can easily toast or grill them.

These potato sandwiches are easy to make. all you need is a good homemade loaf, mashed potatoes and the regular Indian spices. I make these as a quick bite on some days. When I boil potatoes, I boil some extra potatoes. You never know where they will come handy. I keep in the fridge and use them in a day or two. You can use them to make a variety of snacks recipes like:

For making sandwiches I always used whole wheat loaf. most of the times I bake whole wheat bread at home. So when I do plan to have sandwiches for snacks or breakfast, I bake the loaf a day or a couple of days before and refrigerate. In the recipe I have used homemade whole wheat bread. With whole wheat breads, the sandwiches are not light, but are filling. They do keep you full for some time.

Serve these aloo sandwich with tomato ketchup or eggless mayo or any dip. It also goes very well with mint-coriander chutney.
