Aalu Snack Toast

Snack toast is something I have grown up with. For some reason I have not made it for years now. Yesterday I just remembered how easy it was to stuff bread up with the veggies of your choice, cooked the way you like or even left overs and make this yummy goodness.

Snack toaster looks like this. People also call it sandwich maker.

The Modern version

The traditional one. We put this on the flame and cook until the sandwich is nice and crisp

I made a potato-cheese snack toast.

You shall need [Makes 8 sandwiches]

3… Medium size potatoes [Boiled and diced]

1 tbsp… Oil [I used Hudson Canola Oil]

1…green chilly [chopped]

1/2 tsp… Jeera

1/2 tsp…  turmeric powder

Salt to taste

Chilly powder to taste

Butter [Room temperature]

Cheese Slices/ grated cheese

Method:

  • In a pan, heat the oil and add the green chillies.
  • Now add the jeera.
  • Add the potatoes and all other masalas.
  • Cook until the potatoes are covered with the masala and have taken the flavour [Cook on low-medium flame]
  • Once done, let it cook for a bit.
  • Heat your snack toast maker.
  • Add small-ish dollop of butter.
  • On a bread slice, spread some of the potatoes and put some cheese.
  • Cover with the 2nd slice.
  • Now put the sandwich in the maker and put small dollops of butter on them.
  • Close the sandwich maker and let it cook until nice and crisp.
  • Serve with green chutney or ketchup.

I got to hear about Canola oil recently when the company was gracious enough to send me a sample to cook with. I have used it in almost all cooking styles i.e. grilling, baking, stir fry, tempering. The oil has a higher smoking point and is flavorless. Also I noticed that I needed to use very less of it than the usual sunflower oil that I was using. The product claims to be “Lowest saturated “bad” fats and very high monounsaturated “good” fats, along with high Omega-3 content, have made Canola oil the world’s leading new heart-care oil.”

Long term benefits shall be discovered with time. However I shall use it in the near future sometime. [The views mentioned about the product are blogger’s own. This is not a paid review.]
