Samosa Sandwich

This was one of those things to satisy the snacking cravings on a rainy day without indulging in actual fried samosas 😀 … Had some wheat bread at home – the sandwich filling was the potato masala used for samosas …

This sandwich came out tasty without the extra oil that I would have to use for frying the samosas.

These sandwiches along with sauce/chutney on the side – is yumm as a snack paired with garam chai – or even as a meal! … Here we to go to the recipe.

 

 

Am sending this as an entry for WBB#23 Express Breakfasts hosted by Raaga. This is an event started by Nandita of Saffron Trail.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

Potatoes: 2 large ones – boiled and peeled

Peas: a handful

Green chillies: 4 (You can vary the amount according to your taste)

Mustard seeds: ½ teaspoon

Turmeric powder: ¼ teaspoon

Red chilly powder: ½ teaspoon

Coriander powder: a pinch

Garam masala powder: ¼ teaspoon

Dry Mango (Aamchur) powder: ¼ teaspoon

Salt to taste

Oil: 1 tablespoon

Bread slices: one packet – the masala can serve around 10 sandwiches

 

Method:

  1. Crumble the potatoes – try not to have large chunks, but not making it a paste.
  2. Chop the green chillies fine.
  3. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed non-stick frying pan. Add the mustard seeds.
  4. When the mustard seeds begin popping, add the chopped green chillies and fry them.
  5. Now, add the peas to the pan. Mix well so that the oil coats the peas. Reduce the heat to low and cook covered till the peas are tender and done – stir every 3-4 minutes.
  6. When the peas are done, add the crumbled potatoes, the spice powders, and salt to taste.
  7. Mix the potato masala well to blend the ingredients.
  8. Cook covered for about 5 minutes so that flavors come out better.
  9. Turn off the heat.
  10. Place a tablespoon of stuffing between two bread slices.
  11. Toast the sandwich in a toaster or a (non-stick) griddle. If the griddle that you use is not a non-stick one, you might need to drizzle a few drops of oil/butter. You may use butter/oil to toast the sandwiches – I made it dry in an electric sandwich toaster.
  12. The sandwiches can be toasted to a nice golden brown. Serve and enjoy with any sauce/chutney of your choice. I like it with both tamarind chutney as well as hot and sour sauce. These sandwiches in the picture are served with tamarind chutney, coriander chutney, and hot and sour sauce.
