Toast Sandwiches(Potato Filling)

Toast Sandwiches are greatly demanded as my Mil makes them super-tasty!
Simple aloo filling, toasting them and smearing with butter, dipped in tomato sauce = yummmm!
It goes as a brunch, being very filling and tasty!

Ingredients :
12 slices (normal toast) bread
4 boiled medium potatoes
1 medium tomato
2 cloves big garlic minced
1/2 tsp rai (mustard seeds)
1/2 tsp jeera(cumin seeds)
1/2 tsp haldi (Turmeric pwdr)
1 tsp red chili powder
salt to taste
Butter (salted - 1/4 tsp each slice)-OPTIONAL
Tomato ketchup/sauce

Method :

For filling :
In a big bowl, mash the potatoes add haldi, mirchi powder and salt. In a kadhai, heat a tsp of cooking oil, splutter rai, crackle mustard, add the minced garlic, saute till light brown, add the tomatoes, cook for upto 3 minutes. Add the mashed potatoes to it, mix well for around 2 minutes, put off the flame cover the lid.

Prepare for toasting :
Put on the electric toaster. Take a slice of bread, spread the filling evenly place another slice. Prepare such two pieces, place on toaster, before closing the toaster lid, spread little softened salted butter(skip butter-it would still taste as delicious! ) Close the toaster, once the green light flashes, open, and serve hot with sauce. Repeat the process till you are full! :D

I have no photos of the filling.

This post is being ushered by me to my very very first event, being hosted at Sia's - "Ode to Potatoes"

Finally after contemplating, I could make it to an event, before the deadline!!!!! I looooooveeee anything with POTATOES!
