Cooking: 20 minutes

  1. In a pan, heat oil on a low-medium flame. Add mustard seeds and wait for it to crackle.
  2. Add cumin seeds, coriander powder, curry leaves, turmeric powder, potatoes, and salt to taste. Mix it well for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add green peas and turn the flame off. Apply butter and coriander chutney on the 4 slices of bread.
  4. On two slices, place the potato mixture, tomatoes, chaat masala, onions, beetroot (optional), green bell peppers, cheese slice and the other 2 slices of bread on top to make it a sandwich.
