Grilled Potato Sandwich

Potato Sandwiches give a different dimension to grilled cheese sandwich. They are delicious and add an Indian taste to standard grilled cheese. Potato& cheese sandwiches are excellent choice for a hearty and satisfying lunch.

Recipe will make 2 sandwiches

Grilled Potato SandwichIngredients:

  • 4 slices of white firm bread ( I am using buttermilk bread)
  • 3 medium size potatoes boiled peeled and mashed, about 1-1/2 cups of mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon chopped cilantro (hara dhania)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger (adrak)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green chili (hari mirch)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mango power (amchoor)
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 8 tomato thinly sliced


  1. In a bowl mix potatoes, cilantro, ginger, green chili, salt, cumin seeds, and mango powder well.
  2.  Lightly butter the bread slices from one side and other side spread layer of thin potato mixture evenly, and brush the butter over the mixture.
  3. Heat the skillet over medium heat and put the bread slices over the skillet putting the potato mixture side down.
  4. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes or till it is golden brown from bottom. Note: if you turn too quickly the spread will start coming out. Turn it over; put one slice of cheese and tomato slices covering the bread slice.
  5. Now put the other slice of bread potato side down over tomatoes and grilled both sides until sandwich is golden brown and cheese has melted.
  6. Potato Sandwich is ready, slice them diagonally. Serve the sandwich with Hari Cilantro Chutney and side of Carrot Pickle.



  1. Slice them in small squares and serve them as snack.
  2. You may use leftover dry vegetables like Aloo Gobi (potatoes with cauliflower) or Aloo jeera, mash the left over vegetables and follow the same steps.
  3. You can also use a multigrain or whole wheat bread of your choice.

  1. When I was a little girl, my grandmother told me her family was so poor she often took cold, plain mashed potato sandwiches to school (this was in the American South, about 100 years ago). I wish she could have had these sandwiches instead! (Almost as good as aloo naan!)

    Thank you so much.

  2. Please note that the cheese might not be Vegetarian If the package does not specify Microbial Enzymes or no animal rennet. That chesse was made with slaughter cow/pig Enzymes.

    Look for brands like Cabbot, Horizon, or Wholefoods 365 brands that are 100% Lacto Vegetarian cheese

    Here is a link for safe vegetarian cheese


    1. Thanks Robert! I’ve wasted many half hours in cheese sections of Safeway and Whole Foods and finally walked away empty handed in frustration as I could not figure out which cheese was rennet free. This should help a great deal!

  3. Aunty this was a fantastic sandwich ! I didn’t have cilantro or tomato and only had American cheese, but the results were so delicious ! Thank you !!

  4. I have only once comment about your recipes and that is “just follow her recipes “BLINDLY” and one can never go wrong.
    I made this sandwiches for lunch this morning and cheddar cheese slice with grilled potato masala tastes awesome.

    Manjulaji , you are really very innovative and we are proud of you

  5. It is a very innovative recipe Aunty. I want to give a try for tonight supper. I can’t get the mango powder here so is it ok to ignore that ingredient without compromising the taste or is there any alternative for that… ??

    Please let me know. Thanx in advance.. 🙂

    1. Sasi, when I don’t have amchoor (mango powder), I substitute another sour ingredient, like a little bit of lemon juice. It’s not exactly the same . . . but it helps give a similar “bright” flavor.

      1. . . . I should also add that in this recipe, if you try lemon juice instead of amchoor, you’ll want to be careful not to add too much liquid to the potato mixture–you’ll want it to be dry, so you can stick it to the bread and flip it over without it falling apart.
