Aloo Masala Grilled Sandwich Recipe with step by step pictures. Sandwich recipes are a lifesaver. Be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can have sandwiches that only satisfy your hunger but also the need for nutrition. It all depends what kind of stuffing you use. Using chicken and lots of vegetables in a sandwich would make a healthy lunch recipe. If you are looking for easy dinner ideas when you are back home from work and don’t wish to cook a lavish meal, sandwiches are what come to your rescue.
I am big time fan of sandwiches. You can check out my other sandwich recipes that I have shared previously.

Today I am sharing the sandwich recipe which uses spicy potato. I have used pav bhaji masala for a twist. The stuffing is very simple to make and I am sure you will love it. I have used green chutney as a spread for this sandwich, which makes it even more zesty. This recipe yields 6-7 sandwiches. For the purpose of measurement 1 cup = 250 ml.

How to Make Aloo Masala Grilled Sandwich
- Heat oil in a skillet. Add in the mustard seeds and allow them to crackle.
- Add in the chopped curry leaves, garlic and ginger and saute for half a minute till the raw smell disappears. Try not to burn them.
- Add in the onion and saute it till it turns pink.
- Add in the boiled mashed potato, green chilies, coriander leaves, salt, turmeric, red chili flakes, pav bhaji masala and chat masala. Mix well. Cover the skillet and let the potato cook for 3-4 minutes.
- Masala Aloo filling is ready.
- Apply butter to the bread slices on one side.
- Apply green chutney onto a slice over the layer of butter.
- Spoon in a generous layer of masala potato filling.
- Pack the sandwich with another slice, buttered side in. Keep the sandwich onto the griller or a sandwich maker and apply more butter on the outside. Flip the sandwich and apply butter on the other side too.
- Close the grill/sandwich maker and allow the sandwich to stay in till the bread turns golden and crispy.
- Cut the sandwich into two and serve hot with some ketchup or cheese dip and chips on the side. Enjoy!
