Looking for a healthy evening snack for kids? Try this one...Mashed potatoes filled in bread slices and toasted with a dash of butter. The filling is very similar to Aloo Bonda, but this one is much more healthier as there is no deep frying involved. This is also an interesting way to use left over bread.
Bread slices - 6-8 (depends on the quantity of filling)
For the filling
Potato - 1 large
Onion - 1 small, chopped finely
Green chillies - 2 chopped finely (I used 1 tsp of green chilly paste as I didn't want my little one to bite on green chillies and get a center shock :-) )
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice - a few drops (optional)
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Spreadable Butter - to toast the bread
1. Cook the potato with skin. Peel off the skin and lightly mash it. Keep aside.
2. Heat some oil and add cumin seeds.
3. Add the chopped chillies and onions. If you are using chilly paste, add it only after the onion becomes soft.
4. Saute till the onions are transparent.
5. Add turmeric powder and salt and mix well.
6. Add the mashed potato and combine well. Add few drops of lemon juice. You may add a little pepper powder if you want it spicier. The filling is ready, let it cool.
7. Take a bread slice and cut out the sides. Place the bread on a work surface and flatten it by using a rolling pan(like you roll a chappathi/roti).
8. Place a spoonful of the filling at the center, and seal the edges by slightly moistening the ends. Spread butter on both sides.
9. Follow the same for all the bread slices till the filling is over.
10. Heat a tava or pan, and toast the bread on both sides, till it turns light brown.
