I was wondering for toddlers how to prepare sandwich – say a veg burger? I cannot put slices of cucumber, tomato and maybe mayo and give them for lunch. For sure they are not going to eat it or they will have difficult time to eat it. Hence, I got thinking. My son like most kids love potato. So I thought of stuffing potato inside the burger along with some ketchup. I made 2 varieties of it. One with ketchup and 1 with jam. My son loved the one with jam.
So here goes the simple recipe.
Small Burger Bun – 1
Potato – 1 medium
Chilly Powder – 1 teaspoon
Chat Powder – ½ teaspoon
Coriander Powder – ½ teaspoon
Butter – 2 teaspoon
Salt – As per taste
Jam/Ketchup/Cheese – To spread
- Slice from middle of the bun thus making it 2 pieces.
- Slice potatoes thinly.
- Wash it in water properly.
- In a bowl add chilly powder, chat powder, coriander powder and salt( make sure salt is less as the butter will have salt) and mix thoroughly.
- To this add the potatoes and toss such that the masalas coat the potatoes properly.
- Heat a griddle or a tawa.
- Spread some butter on both sides of both bun pieces. Toast it on tawa and keep aside.
- Heat some butter and spread the potatoes one by one on the tawa.
- After a minute turn the potato slices to the other side to be cooked.
- Once cooked remove all the potatoes.
- Now assemble the burger. Take the 2 pieces of burger and spread jam/ketchup/cheese spread.
- Place the potato pieces in between the pieces of the bun and serve.
- Healthier option would be to use sweet potato.
- The more thinly the potatoes are cut the crispier it gets. The kids will love the crispiness factor when they bite into the burger.
- You can also place a simple egg omelette to make it more wholesome.
