Tawa Aloo Sandwich | Quick Sandwich for Breakfast

There is nothing like a quick bite that gets you going. I can easily say this simple and quick Potato Sandwich was one of those dishes I made during my early years of cooking before marriage. I don't exactly remember when I started loving this sandwich, but  this was prepared quite often at home when I was a child. This was the quickest dish that Amma would dish out when she has excess bread on hand.

Hubby dear would always comment how I love anything with bread. I was so happy knowing that Konda has the same taste. When Amma made this Tawa Alu Sandwich, Konda was confused having two dishes she loved, as I had made Uggani for dinner. She didn't want to miss out either. So finally she said she would taste both.

This is a typical sandwich with South indian flovours.


Tawa Alu Sandwich

Ingredients Needed:

Bread Slices - 4
Potato - 1 big
Onion - 1 medium
Green Chilies - 1 long
Garlic - 2 cloves
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Ghee - 2 tsps
Mustard Seeds
Curry leaves - 4 -5
Oil - 1 tsp

Method to prepare:

Boil the potatoes either in a pressure cooker or in microwave for 6 mins. If you are cooking it in mw, once done, immediately put it in water so that the skin comes out well.

You can either mash it roughly or very fine. It depends how you like it. We mostly mash it roughly with huge potato pieces in between.

Heat a pan with oil, add mustard seeds, once it splutters, add the finely chopped onions, chopped green chilies, curry leaves and garlic. Saute till the onions are done.

Once the onions are done, add the boiled potatoes, mix well, add the turmeric and salt. Cover and simmer for 5 mins until the stuffing gets cooked well.

Trim the bread slices on sides. Heat a tawa, grease with ghee. Place all the slices on the tawa, simmer to low flame. Scoop the alu stuffing on two slices.

Once the bread gets crispy, place the other slices on the stuffed slices. Press well for it to stick together.

Simmer again for 2 mins.  Cut diagonally and serve with ketchup.
Notes: Remove the chillies from the stuffing before you use them for stuffing.
