Easy Potato Sandwich Recipe - Indian Style Aloo Masala Sandwich

easy potato sandwich recipe
Bread sandwich is one of the easy to make & quick breakfast/dinner/snack recipes.In my family, none of us are a big fan of sandwich recipes.So I make them very rarely and that too mostly in busy week days if I have no choice for quick breakfast. This morning, I tried easy potato masala sandwich in Indian style for the first time with a loaf of fresh wheat bread/brown bread. It came out very well and we loved it. Especially Raksha liked it very much and told me to prepare the same for her school snack box & lunch box. I have prepared a no cook aloo masala and made it without spreading any chutneys or cheese. Still it was tasting good. It a very simple recipe. Bachelors and working women would love the ease of this recipe. If you like this stuffing idea, you can make any number of variations as per your family's taste. Lets see how to make this easy, simple potato sandwich/ aloo masala sandwich recipe with step by step photos !
