Method to make the green chutney

  1. Food process the ingredients for the green chutney with little water until it is a smooth paste.

In a pan, heat some oil.

  3. Now add the tomatoes.
  4. Fry the tomatoes till they become soft and are cooked.
  5. Add the chopped green chilli.

  7. Mix them well.
  8. Now add the mashed potatoes.
  9. Add salt. Mix the stuffing really well.
  10. Keep on stirring on a low flame so that the mixture does not stick to the pan.
  11. Cook for 5 minutes.
  12. Let the mixture cool before you start using it for the sandwich.

For making the sandwiches

  1. Melt butter in a frying pan and coat one side of each piece of bread with butter
  2. Now apply the green chutney on the bread.
  3. Take the potato mixture and apply it on this bread.
  4. Sprinkle some garam masala on top of potato mixture.
  5. Now cover this potato laden bread with another slice of bread, butter-side out.
  6. In a pan, grill the sandwiches till browned from both sides.
  7. It’s crisp from outside and spicy and soft from inside

The soup was really good. The coconut and the tomatoes surprised me how well they went together. I liked the flavor that the different ingredients made. If you don’t like your chutney really spicy, you can use a milder pepper than the habanero.
