Potato-Sesame Toast..Indo-Chinese Way

P1050582
Hi.
A few days back me and the kids were watching a cookery show on TV and this particular recipe was shown, my elder son on watching it said, it seems quite easy to make, Mummy why don’t you make this for us. I agreed but I must confess I had not seen the recipe with full concentration. Now, that I agreed I decided to surprise him by making it for his lunch box. I did modify the stuffing as I did not remember watching it properly but I sticked to a gram flour topping with Sesame seeds. If there was no gram flour in it, it can be called a completely Chinese preparation.

One has a choice to deep fry or shallow fry the toast. I deep fried for my kids and made a very low oil shallow fry for us, the pics of which I have posted.

The kids loved their snack in the lunch box, the younger one finished his lunch box completely but sadly my elder one got only a few pieces to eat as his friends and teachers finished the rest.
It’s surely a quick snack to make and perfect for lunch box as it’s quite filling. Since my kids have loved it, it’s going to frequent in my kitchen. One can make their own variations by adding more veggies into the potato mix.
