Your potato masala just got sandwiched with a chilli garlic chutney and some curry leaf crisps.

Makes for a solitary pleasure

Cooking Time: 7-10 minute


1 big or 5 small Potato/es (boiled)

1 twig of Curry Leaves

2 tbsp Vegan Coconut Butter (substitute with normal butter if you are not vegan)

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

1 Green Chilli (chopped)

1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds

1/2 tsp Sugar

1 tbsp Lime/Lemon juice

3 cloves of Garlic (chopped roughly)

5 Dried Red Chilli (soaked in water enough to cover them)

2 slices of Bread

1tbsp of Olive Oil/Coconut Oil

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste


Grind the soaked red chilli, chopped garlic, lemon juice, sugar and salt into a high power blender and blend it to a paste. Add salt to taste (approx 1/2 tsp). Keep aside.

In a frying pan take 1 tbsp of oil. Let it come up to the heat. Then add the mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add the curry leaves, let it crisp up. Remove the curry leaves and reserve in a bowl. Add the potatoes to the pan, press and toss until both sides crisp up. Turn the heat/flame to low. Sprinkle salt, pepper, turmeric powder. Remove from the heat/flame immediately.

Butter your bread slices on both sides. Layer the potatoes on one of the buttered bread slices. Slather the Chilli-Garlic chutney on the other buttered bread slice. Sprinkle the reserved Curry Leaf crisps and sandwich both the slices of bread.

Heat a pan, add the buttered sandwich to the pan and toast it till it browns on both sides. Cut it into half or quarter and serve/eat it.

Happy cooking!
