One of the breakfasts or tea time snacks that make for epic snacks is this dish. I’d recommend this for your next Sunday family meal. It is very filling, total street style and has unmatched Punjabi flavours.

Take a large bowl and mash the peeled and boiled potatoes in it gently using hands.
Next, add the chopped green chillies, chopped coriander and all the dry spices. Give this batter a good mix and adjust the spice content as per your flavour preference.
Cut all bread slices into equal halves and evenly spread green chutney on each.
Smear 1 tbsp of potato filling on each half of the slice evenly across. Cover it with another half of the bread, gently press and keep it aside.
Repeat this process for the remaining batter.

Transfer it to a plate and dab the extra oil using a paper tissue.
