DSC03700.jpgFor making the potato patties, boil and mash potatoes. Chop the onions, green chilies, and coriander leaves finely. Now add in the seasonings, salt, red chilly flakes, dried mint flakes, chat masala, and butter and mash it well. Now make patties out of the batter and shallow fry in a pan. Keep aside.

Step 2

For making the uttapam batter, take the idli dosai mix in a bowl and add the chopped onions, green chilies, tomato, coriander leaves, salt, cumin, and carom seeds. Mix it up. Here I have used Fresho idli dosai batter mix. You can try something similar.

Step 3

Take a slice of bread and cut it in triangles. Butter one side. Place one potato patty on one half. Now cover it with the other half. Now smear the uttapam batter on the front side of the bread. You can insert some toothpicks in the sandwich to stop it from loosening.

Next, add the boiled chana dal and saute everything together for a minute. Cool it.

Step 4
