Snack Time....Bread with Potato filling

Being stuck at home due to snowfall was not something I was looking forward for this long weekend.... Winter’s first snowfall started and everything is sort of dead here including my classes and transportation...

This is my first snowy winter and all the excitement and the jumping watching the snow fall is loong gone...Now I can't wait for the winter to get over...For the moment I am waiting for the roads to clear up...

I know this is not a traditional thanksgiving item, but for me this is one of my comfort snacks. I make this quite often and finish it fast with ketchup...Whaaat Ketchup? Yep ketchup used to be a weakness for me. But I have it under control now. These days I like appreciating the actual flavor of the dish rather than enjoying ketchup...

The filling I used here is pretty straightforward...But the combination of toasted bread and this filling is what that makes this an awesome snack

  1. Bread                 -  few slices (7 - 9)
  2. Potato                -  1 large (used Russet)
  3. Onion                 -  1/2 large chopped finely
  4. Green chilies        -  2 chopped finely
  5. Turmeric powder  -  1/4 tsp
  6. Cumin seeds        -  1 pinch
  7. Mustard seeds      -  1 pinch
  8. Oil
  9. Salt
  10. Pepper powder     - 1 pinch (optional)
  11. Butter                 - enough to toast the bread

  1. Cook the potato with skin in a pot of water. I used the microwave setting for cooking the potato..Its pretty fast but if cooked for long you will end up with a withered potato...(right pic above)
  2. In the meantime heat some oil, splutter mustard seeds and cumin seeds..
  3. When the spluttering is over add the chopped chilies and onions...
  4. Saute till the onions are transparent and oil starts to appear...
  5. Now add the turmeric powder and saute till the raw smell of the powder goes...
  6. Peel the skin of the cooked potato and cut into small cubes and add to the onion mix...
  7. Mix everything together, slightly mashing the potatoes..Add pepper powder...
  8. Switch off the heat and let it cool. Filling is ready

  1. Take a bread slice. Slightly moisten one side by dipping it in water. Too much much will tear it, make sure to dip just enough.
  2. Press the bread slice with both hands and squeeze it.
  3. Place a spoonful of the filling at the center, and seal the edges by slightly moistening the ends...
  4. Spread butter on both sides. 
  5. Continue the process with all the bread slices..
  6. Heat a pan, and toast the bread on both sides, till it is slightly brown...
  7. Serve hot and enjoy...:)

Happy Thanksgiving...:)...Have an exciting and awesome vacation....:)
