No picnic is complete without potato sandwich. An easy snack to make that is tasty and mess free to transport. I make it the Indian way with lots of crunchy lentils and a spicy dipping sauce. The result is yummy sandwich ready to be gobbled up in minutes.
One loaf of bread (whole white tastes best, but you can use wheat as well for more nutrition)
Potatoes(boiled) – 6 small size
Onion – 1
Mustard seeds – 2 tsps
Chana dal (bengal gram spilt) – 3 tsps, optional
Urad dal (black gram skinned) – 3 tsps, optional
Green chillies(finely chopped) – 2
Coriander(finely chopped) – to garnish
Oil – as needed
Salt – as needed
Chilli powder or paprika – as needed
Butter(to make the sandwich)
Pan to make potatoes
Make the Potatoes
Heat oil in the pan. Start with the mustard seeds. Once it sputters, add the green chillies and the dals. Take caution not to burn the dals. Once the dals are crunchy and light brown, add the finely chopped onions. Fry till it is slightly brown. Add salt and the chilli powder. Finally add the potatoes and fry a bit. Leave it on medium heat for a short while, stirring in between to avoid burning. The potatoes are ready to be stuffed.
Making the sandwich
Add some butter and heat the sandwich maker until ready. Scoop some potato mixture in between 2 slices of bread and make the sandwich in the sandwich maker.
Tip: You can spread some mint chutney on one of the bread to make it more tangy. But make sure you serve it immediately since the chutney will make the bread a bit soggy.
That’ it! Your sandwich is ready to be eaten and taken on a picnic. Perfect picnic companion along with your family 😉
Serve it with some Maggi hot sauce or regular Ketchup.
