Alu 'Bund' Toast #sikandalouscuisine
These grilled toasts were alway known as ' bund ' toast at home - I guess the staff called them that as some filling or the other was enclosed or ' bund ' between two pieces of bread . So the name lives on , and depending upon the filling one asks afor and gets unda bund toast / cheese bund toast or as in today's case Alu Bund Toast. No recipe as such , often leftover veggies are used and this makes a complete meal , tiffin dubba snack etc. As I said , no recipe , go with your taste buds. Here is what we do.
3 Large Potatoes - Peel , and crumble with fingers into chunks - dont mash !
1 Large Onion - Slice long.
1 Small Tomato - Dice.
1/2 Teaspoon Jeera Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Minced Ginger.
2 Green Chilies Chopped
2 Tablespoons Chopped Green Dhania Leaves
Dot of Hing.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi Powder
Juice of 1 Lemon.
1/2 Teaspoon Amchoor Powder - Optional.
4 Bread Slices -Butter on one side.
Heat oil , splutter jeera , add hing , add ginger , green chilies and onions and saute till onions begin to change color . Now add tomatoes and all the powders and cook 2-3 minutes till tomatoes are soft . Add potatoes and lemon juice and toss , cook on low covered for 3-4 minutes for potatoes to take in all flavors . Taste , adjust flavors and take off heat - cool .
Heat up toastie maker / griller / bund toast maker , lightly oil surface.Between two slices of bread fill sufficient filling keeping buttered side outside .Place in gadget and cook till desired brown.
Seriously comfort / soul food - I often eat a few for dinner stuffed with egg white bhujiya or whatever meets my mood.
