Traditionally this sandwich is made with boiled grated potato, and served with a huge amount of grated cheese on the toasted sandwich. I opted to not serve with cheese on top or use the boiled grated potato.
Ingredients:3 tablespoon oil½ teaspoon onion seeds½ teaspoon Jeeru (Cumin) seeds¼ teaspoon mustard seeds1 stem curry leaves2 large potatoes (peeled, largely cubed)1 teaspoon ground green chillies1 teaspoon crushed garlic1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon dhana jeeroo powderPinch turmeric powder½ teaspoon white pepper powderLancewood white cheddar cheese (grated)1 green pepper (julienned)1 onion (cut in rings)2 tablespoon oilChaat masalaButter (as needed)dhania (coriander) chutney (samoosa dip- as needed)6 slices white bread
Method:1. In a frying pan, heat 3 tablespoon oil, add seeds and leaves, temper.2. Toss potatoes with garlic, chillies and dry spices.3.
