Sandwiches are an easy meal. They are healthy too. We get very good brown bread from a local Iyengar bakery here and the bread from here tastes better than the one we get from Daily Bread.

I cooked my stuffing a bit, because Niket will fuss if Yashi eats the raw veggies.

My recipe for sandwiches-
1 pack of brown bread
1 onion, 1 tomato- chopped finely, Can also use- Capsicum, carrots and French beans
2 potatoes boiled and mashed
handful of roasted peanuts
Oil for cooking (I used olive oil)
1 cucumber - cut into rounds or chopped- as you prefer
Salt to taste
a pinch of turmeric
Mustard sauce for smearing on sandwiches, can use / skip
Tomato Sauce: For serving

Prepare the stuffing-
Heat oil, add onions. Let them turn soft and translucent. Add tomatoes. Cook till done. Add salt, turmeric and the mashed potatoes. Cook a bit till they mix well and the raw smell is gone. Add the peanuts and the cucumber. Mix well to combine. Keep aside.

I used my Sandwich maker for sandwiches. Smear oil on the tops of bread slices. Smear the other side of bread (which will be in contact with the filling) with mustard sauce. Add the filling, making sure you add enough cucumber and potatoes to each. Close this slice with another sauce smeared slice.

Cook in the sandwich maker as directed. Remove and serve with ketchup.

I am sending this to Sandwich Mela at Valli's.
