Potato sandwich- Easy and quick

It was a weekend. I had gone out with friends and came back a little late and tired. My hubby and son who had spend the entire day at home were a bit bored and wanted to have something nice and spicy. So here is the conversation-

Me- what about maggi noodles?

DH- No..

(I did not want to cook an elaborate dinner and was hoping they would demand something easy.It is really boring to cook something proper during the weekend!!)

Me- Then what?

DH- you havent made sandwiches for a long time..a vegetable sandwich..

Me-( I was relieved)Ok , will make the filling with potatoes, why dont you get some bread.

So it was decided – potato sandwiches. I recently got a microwave steamer, so got the potatoes steamed and cooked in 10 minutes. And our yummy dinner was over in an hour.

  1. Peel the skin of potatoes and cut them into half. Steam them in a microwave so that it becomes soft. Alternatively, you can cook them in a pressure cooker. Heat oil in a pan. Add the finely chopped onions and saute till they turn pink. Add the cooked potatoes along with turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt. Mix and mash well till the potatoes get neatly combined with the spices.
  2. Butter both sides of the bread. Place the filling on one side. Place another similarly buttered bread on the top. Now keep this in a sandwich maker and cook as per instructions.
  3. Serve immediately with some tomato ketchup.
