Potato sandwich

Time is just passing by quickly and here we are in the second month of the year. This is a special month for us as we became a complete family this month 9 years back. My second son turns 9 years old end of this month and we can’t wait to celebrate the special day. This is also a very busy time in school and I am tying hard to keep my cool juggling between the school and other kids activities. 

My first theme for this month’s BM is lunch box recipes. Bhawana of Code2Cook is hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s delight event for this month. I am doing a kid’s delight theme after a long time and I am excited to share what I normally cook for my boys in the morning. My boys are not picky eaters and would take pretty much anything to school, but they still have there favorites. This Potato Masala Sandwich, is one such recipe that they really like.

This sandwich is pretty much a No Cook recipe, as there is no other cooking involved other than boiling the potatoes. I do this the night before in my Instant Pot, and my potatoes are ready to be mashed when I wake up the next day. Once the potatoes are boiled, we just have to mash it, add the spices and layer it on the bread slices and toast.

I use my sandwich maker to make this sandwich, but you can just cook it on a grill on stove top if you don’t own a sandwich maker. This sandwich maker has been with me for almost 18 years and it is still going strong. It is one of the first things that I purchased when I came to US after my wedding.
