Spicy potato cheese sandwich (aloo sandwich)

Sandwiches are super simple to make, easy to carry and most importantly can be eaten for any meal in a day. In this post, I am sharing a very easy to make sandwich, which is just perfect for your busy mornings. You can have it for breakfast or pack it for lunch and most importantly everyone in the family will love it. Count in your fussy little eaters too. With some pre-preparation, you can put these sandwiches together in less than 5 minutes.

If you hear someone say he doesn't like potatoes, you know you caught a liar. Of late, there has been a lot of fuss about eating potatoes. That's because it is loaded with carbohydrates. Eating potatoes the right way is actually beneficial to health. I am not talking about the deep fried potato curry, french fries, chips and the likes. Potatoes are loaded with vitamin C, potassium, iron, vitamin B6, protein and fiber and provides you the much needed energy to kick start your day. These sandwiches are one of the healthiest options to include this nutrient powerhouse aka potatoes in your meal, guilt free.


Ingredients:

Sandwich:

  • Whole wheat bread - 6 slices
  • Cheese slice - 3 (optional)
  • Butter - 3 tsp 
Filling:

  • Potatoes - 2 
  • Onions - 1 small sized 
  • Green chili - 1 
  • Coriander leaves - 1-2 tbsp 
  • Red chili powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Chat masala - 1/4 tsp (optional)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Green chutney - 3 tbsp
Green chutney:
  • Mint leaves - 2 handfuls
  • Coriander leaves - 1 handful
  • Green chili - 2
  • Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
Procedure:
  • As a first step, thoroughly wash the potatoes and boil them in a pressure cooker or an instant pot 
  • While the potatoes get boiled, prepare green chutney. This chutney brings in a refreshing flavour and makes the sandwiches spicy. Blend all the ingredients listed under green chutney together in a mixer jar. 
  • Finely chop the onion, chilies and coriander leaves
  • Once the potatoes become warm, peel and mash them using a fork or masher
  • Add onions, green chilies and coriander leaves, along with the spices specified above and salt to the potato mash and mix well
  • Now to a slice of bread, spread the green chutney and on the other slice place a slice of cheese and potato filling 
  • In a preheated pan, spread butter and toast each side for 2-3 minutes until both the sides are crisp and golden. Alternatively, you can also grill the sandwiches.
  • Serve these spicy potato sandwiches with ketchup or a dip of your choice. 
Tips:
  • Choose whole wheat or multi-grain bread instead of the white version, as it is healthier
  • Instead of spreading green chutney on the bread, you can also use it as a dip. But applying it on the bread makes the sandwiches spicy. Choose either one based on your spice tolerance level. 
  • The spices we add to the potato filling is totally customizable. So tweak it according to your taste
  • If you like your sandwich sweet and spicy, then spread some ketchup on the other slice before placing the potato filling
  • You can use grated cheese in place of the cheese slice or totally ignore cheese. But by including cheese, you get some additional protein in your meal and it also makes the sandwich more filling
  • As part of your meal prep, you can boil and store the potatoes the previous night. By doing so you can save a lot time boiling the potatoes and allowing them to cool while you intend to make these sandwiches
  • The green chutney stays fresh without loosing its bright green colour for up to 3-4 days. So you can prepare it in advance and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also use it in a variety of ways in our meals.

Review: Anex Monkey Smart Watch

Hello Readers,  Welcome back. While browsing through a weekly flyer by Canadian Tire, my eyes got hold of a smart watch, primarily for its name - Monkey Smart Watch. It's original price was $89.99. On account of Father's Day, the price was slashed 70% and offered for just $24.99 (from June 9th to June 16th).  As it was listed on Canadian Tire website, I thought the product should be genuine and googled to know more about the product. But there weren't sufficient reviews online. So I decided to try it myself and booked it online. This smart watch was launched in the last quarter of 2021 as Anex Monkey Smart Watch. Last year, it had been sold for just $19.99 as part of Black Friday deal. Even after 5 days of waiting, Canadian Tire didn't process my order. On the other hand, the stock was vanishing real quick and only 80 watches were available in our near by store. When checked with their customer service executive, I was told to cancel my online order or wait until they p

Why I Write - Q&A with Manu

I keep getting direct and indirect questions on Why I Write? There won't be a better occasion than this to address this Q and other frequently asked Qs. It's been exactly 2 years since I started this website -  Manu's Medley  and apparently this is my 100th blog post.  So Why I Write?  I can give a fancier reply stating "I chose to follow my passion". But I won't, as it isn't true. After being in the IT industry for more than a decade, working tirelessly all through the weeks, months and years, I moved to Canada carrying my little one, when the whole world was witnessing one of the deadliest diseases COVID. It was at the same time, I had to take a career break due to few compelling personal reasons and decided to be a full time mom.  It's a new place and a new role, with almost zero support, unlike the support system at India. To top it, the lockdowns and restrictions were never ending. The three of us spent months together within our apartment and my

Recipe: Idiyappam | Sevai | String Hoppers

Idiyappam, is a well known break fast item in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Sri Lanka. It is also known as sevai or string hoppers (in English) and is primarily made out of rice floor. Like idli, idiyappam is made through steaming using no oil, making it very easily digestible and light on stomach.  When I think about idiyappam, I remember 2 instances from my childhood. One of my friend's mom, used to feed her 2 year old with different colourful sevais for evening snack - white, yellow, red along with a liquid version of it too, almost 3-4 times in a week. Later I learnt from her elder daughter (my friend) that they are coconut sevai (sweet version), lemon sevai, tomato sevai and rasam sevai. Though born and brought up in Chennai, we aren't much into idiyappams.  I don't remember eating them until I crossed 10 years. Whenever we visit a doctor with fever, our doctor used to give a list of food items - kanji, bread, idli, idiyappam and rasam rice, which I was usually averse to even
