Alu Cheese Sandwich

Alu simply means potato and I’ve spiced up this sandwich with a homemade turmeric loaf but you can use a white loaf instead. It’s comforting , flavourful and oh so cheesy.
This recipe makes 1 sandwich.

1 tbsp oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp chilli powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 boiled potato, crushed
handful fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
handful of grated cheddar
turmeric loaf or white loaf
chilli oil (optional)

– Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Add the mustard seeds and let them sizzle.

– Add the onion, green chilli, salt, chilli powder, and turmeric powder. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes.

– Add the boiled potato, mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes.

– Transfer to a large bowl. Add the coriander and cheese. Mix well.

– Place the filling onto one slice of bread and top with the other.

– Butter the outsides and place in your toastie maker for 4-5 minutes. Alternatively, toast in a heated frying pan for 3 minutes on each side while pressing down with a spatula.
