Aloo methi sandwich recipe is one more easy to make breakfast with bread.I am one big lover of sandwich,I can eat sandwich daily,in fact when I was working I used to have them very often for breakfast,I simply love grilled veg sandwich.Sometimes I used to add cheese and sometimes skip cheese,both are delicious.The aloo methi sandwich recipe I am blogging today is a very filling,healthy and tasty snack for toddlers and kids who fuss over eating.In this recipe,boiled and mashed potatoes are sauteed with fresh methi leaves for a brilliant flavor and taste. Fres methi leaves pairs up beautifully with potatoes and the minimum use of other spices let the flavor of methi leaves shine.I love methi leaves,I love them along with their slight bitterness,which I feel is uniqueness of methi leaves.Though it is possible to reduce the bitterness of methi leaves by squeezing the juice,we also loose flavor along with bitterness by doing so.Actually most of the bitterness goes away while sauteing ,so I highly recommend not to squeeze or add extra salt to methi leaves in any recipe which calls for methi leaves.Try to source tender or baby leaves as they are less bitter and really tasty.This aloo methi sandwich I made for snacks was consumed in no time,tastes great with a hot cup of coffee especially during monsoons.
