Boiled potato  -------- 2
Onion ------------------ 1(chopped finely)
Ghee/butter ---------- 1 tsp
Asafoetida -----------  a pinch
cumin seeds ---------- 1/4 tsp
Green chilli ----------- 1 chopped finely.

Garam masala powder- 1/4 tsp
Besan (gram flour)----- 1/2 cup
Rice flour ----------------1 tbsp
Baking soda ------------ 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Cilantro as needed.

METHOD:

For Batter
  1. In a bowl, mix besan and rice flour.
  2. Add salt, little turmeric,red chilli powder and baking soda to it.
  3. Mix in water to form batter. Do it without forming lumps. The consistency of batter is between dosa batter & idli batter. Not too thick or too thin.
For Filling
  1. Add a tsp ghee/butter and add cumin seeds, asafoetida & then add the chopped onions, ginger,green chilli.
  2. Next add turmeric powder, red chilli powder & garam masala.
  3. Mash the boiled potatoes & then add this to the pan.
  4. Add needed salt & cilantro leaves .
  5. Transfer this to a bowl.
  6. Take sandwich bread (2 slices) & drizzle little water to it. If you dont  drizzle water to bread, it wont join together and the batter will go in between the bread slices and will remain uncooked.
  7. Now keep the potato mixture in between the bread slices & press it tightly.
  8. Dip this in the beasan batter & fry in oil.
Have this with mint/cilantro chutney or tomato ketchup.
