keep the potato stuffing aside.

assembling and preparing sandwiches:

slice the loaf in 0.5 inches width.

butter them evenly.

now place the mixture and spread it all over the slices. cover with the second slice.

heat a thick bottomed tawa or a griddle and spread some butter on it.

place the sandwiches on the tawa.

now place a lid on the sandwiches. on top of the lid, place a weight. you can also only place a heavy lid. the plate i used is not heavy, so i kept a heavy mortar on it. toast for a few minutes.

spread some butter on the top. you do have to check with a spatula, to see how much they base has got browned. when the base becomes golden, then flip.

now again place the lid and a weight on it. again toast for a few minutes till the base is golden and crisp.

once done, then remove in a plate.

serve these potato sandwiches hot with tomato ketchup or mint-coriander chutney.
