I make Potato Masala Bread Toast once a month especially for dinners. If I have Poori Masala/Potato Masala left behind after eating Spiced Puris, Masala dosa or Cutlet, I will finish off the Poori Masala/Potato Masala by making this toast. You just need a scoop of Poori Masala/Potato Masala for a bread. Gj would be done with two slices of bread and I would also require the same. With just 4 scoops of Poori Masala/Potato Masala, I’ll finish off the dinner. Some people also sandwich the Poori Masala/Potato Masala in a bun and serve them. When making this recipe, I had only bread so thought of posting it with bread combination. My friends make this toast with Buns. It tastes great on both.
I did not use green chillies for making this Potato Masala because while eating it with bread, we might bite the green chillies. Therefore, I used red chilly powder. If you are planning to use green chillies, just remove them while sandwiching the bread. You can use any version of Potato Masala for this recipe. Sometimes, I just boil potatoes and fry them with turmeric, chilli powder and salt. It also tastes great.

Potatoes – 3nos.

Turmeric Powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Note. The ingredients shown will vary with the original quantity.
1. Wash and boil the potatoes. Insert a toothpick or knife into the potatoes to check if they are soft. Once they cool down, remove their skin and cut them into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan, and add mustard seeds. Once mustard seeds splutter, add urad dal, channa dal and curry leaves. Then add onions.
2. Fry onions until they turn transparent and then add chopped tomatoes. Add salt and sauté well. Now add turmeric powder and chilli powder. Saute well.
3. When the raw smell of the powders go off, add the potato pieces. Sprinkle little water. Meantime, combine gram flour and 2 tablespoon of water in a small bowl to make a paste.
4. Add the paste to the potato masala and sauté it well. When the mixture thickens, sprinkle coriander leaves and give a quick stir. Keep the potato masala aside. Apply butter on one side of the breads.
5. Toast the side of the butter that does not have butter (i.e) buttered side should face upward. Now place the potato masala and cover it with a bread (the buttered side should face the potato masala). Then, toast the bread again on either sides until little crispy. Serve hot.
Now, Potato Masala Bread Toast is ready!
You can also serve this potato masala as a side dish for Spiced Puris and also as a stuffing for Masala Dosa.
- Instead of butter, you can also apply ghee on the bread.
- You can also replace chilli powder by green chillies. You can take out the green chillies while you sandwich the bread.
