Aloo Sandwich Recipe - Potato Onion Tomato Sandwich Toast

Aloo Sandwich Recipe
I was craving for some hot bread sandwich for the past 2 blame it on the climate or the sight of bread loaf lying around ;) I saw this potato sandwich recipe quite interesting with a burst of flavours so decided to give a try.I skipped the cheese part and replaced it with white sauce, the sandwich was a great hit at home.Even amma who says no to sandwiches asked for second serving :) Now do I need any other reason to make this sandwich again?! :) This potato sandwich has easily become one of my favorite sandwich recipes that I've tried so far and am sure I am going to try with other veggie variations with this recipe.I have a love for sandwiches both made in sandwich maker and the tawa toasted ones, both tastes good in its own ways.

My Notes:

  • You can add any vegetable of your choice.Capsicum,cabbage are few of my suggestions.
  • You can either toast and make sandwich and use sandwich maker.
  • Toasting the veggies gives a great crunch to the sandwich.
  • I used white bread, you can use wheat or multigrain bread too.
  • Always use a flat laddle to press the sandwich while toasting , this ensures even browning.
  • Make sure you cool down white sauce before you apply it.
  • The white sauce thickens with time so switch it off accordingly.
  • For the white sauce : I haven't added cheese, if you want add 2 tbsp of grated cheese after the milk starts thickening.
  • This sandwich has to be served immediately else it will become soggy.
