  2. Place a slice of bread, with the buttered side facing upwards, on a clean, dry and flat surface.
  3. Place one portion of the aloo masala and spread it evenly over it.
  4. Arrange 2 onion slices, 3 tomato slices and 6 to 7 capsicum slices over the stuffing and sprinkle ¼ tsp of sandwich masala evenly over it.
  5. Cover it with another slice of bread, with the buttered side facing downwards and press it lightly. Spread ¼ tsp of butter evenly over the bread slice.

  7. Place the sandwich in the sandwich toaster and cook on a medium flame, till it turns brown and crisp from both the sides.
