Masala Bread Sandwich

Masala Bread Sandwich is a kind of Bhajji or Pakora stuffed usually with a spicy potato mixture and is deep-fried with chickpea flour to get that crispiness outside. This could be a great Sunday snack to be served along with any hot drink.

To get a great taste, I spread Coriander-Mint dip to the bread slices, sandwich the bread slices with spicy potato-veggie mixture, then give a quick dip into a watery flour mix and fry them in the oil. The crispy outer and the spicy sandwich inside with the Coriander-Mint dip flavor would be more than enough to make you say 'Mmmmmm....'.

Always choose whole wheat or multigrain variety while choosing the bread. And yes, shallow frying is a wise decision to go along. The procedure of the recipe is somewhat long and so, I'm moving fast.

How to Make?

To Make Sandwich Masala:
  • Wash and boil potatoes in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles. Once the pressure got released, peel off the skin and mash them nicely.
  • Get all the veggies chopped and ready to cook.
  • Take a wok and add a tablespoon of oil to it.
  • Add green chilly, curry leaves, and minced ginger-garlic to the oil and saute until the raw smell goes away.

  • Add finely chopped onions and saute till the onion turns pink.

  • Now add in the other chopped veggies and cook them for a minute.

  • A pinch of turmeric powder, red chilly powder, needed salt should be added to the veggies along with the mashed potatoes.
  • Cook for a minute or two, sprinkle some coriander leaves and let it stay for some time away.

To Make Batter:
  • Add 1/2 cup of chickpea (or besan) flour and salt to a mixing bowl.
  • By adding water, the flour needs to be stirred to get running consistency. (definitely not thick!)
  • The batter is ready now. Just keep it aside.

To Make Bread Sandwich:
  • Apply Coriander-Mint dip to the bread slices.

  • Cut the bread slices into half (to get rectangle pieces) or cut on the diagonal (to get triangle pieces).
  • Spread the masala on one half and close the masala with the other half. It should be like this.

  • Meanwhile, keep the oil ready for frying.
  • Now dip the bread into the batter (as quickly as possible!) and fry it on a medium flame flipping the bread occassionally.

  • Bread Sandwich is now ready for snacking.

  • You can use whatever veggies you have, along with the potato. 
  • Dipping in the batter for a long time may yield a messy bread sandwich. Move the sandwich to the oil as fast as you can.
Happy Snacking!
