Moong Sandwiches


After posting a series of Palakkad Special recipes, thought of sharing a simple but healthy and filling breakfast recipe.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. On all weekdays, our breakfast would consist of simple oats porridge, without sugar and some fruit. It’s only on the weekends, that I spend some time and prepare something for breakfast.

 I and my daughter love sandwiches thus I like to experiment with different kinds of fillings. So here’s one such nutritious and filling sandwich. This moong filling is one of my favorites and is loved by one and all in the family.



What you’ll need:
1.       Bread Slices – as required
2.       Butter – as required

For the filling

1.       Green Moong – ½ cup
2.       Potato – 1 Medium
3.       Onions – 1 Medium
4.       Garlic – 2 or 3 cloves
5.       Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
6.       Turmeric Powder – a pinch
7.       Chaat Masala – ½ tsp
8.       Chilli Powder – ½ tsp
9.       Salt to taste
10.   Oil – 1 stp



Method

Soak moong in water for about ½ hour. Pressure cook the moong and potato for 3 whistles with just enough water. Once pressure releases, drain the water from the moong. Remove skin from potato and mash and keep aside.

Finely chop onions and garlic.

Heat a Kadai with a tsp of oil. Add cumin seeds, as it changes color, add the chopped onions and fry for a minute. Next add the chopped garlic and fry till onions turn light brown. Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder. Fry for a minute. Now add the mashed potato and cooked moong. Mix well. Add chaat Masala and salt to taste. Give everything a good mix. Remove from heat and let it cool.
To make the sandwich, Butter bread slices lightly. Spoon a little filling on one slice, place another slice of bread on top.  Make as many as required. Heat a sandwich maker, place the sandwiches and grill till they are well browned.



Serve immediately with tomato ketchup.
