Vada Bread

This is a popular snack in North India.  It tastes good with Pav Bun and sauce.  For a change i made it vada bread.

Bread 8 slices or buns - 4
Butter - enough to fry
tomato ketchup - as needed
Dates chutney or any sweet chutney

To make the vada:
Instant mix Bajji flour - 1/2 cup
Corn flour  - 1 tablespoon

to make the masala filling:
cooked  (boiled and peeled) potato - 1
onion - 1 chopped
green chillies  - 1 finely chopped
turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
oil - 1 teaspoon

to saute:
mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
cumin seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
few curry leaves
frozen green peas - 1 tablespoon
asafoetida powder (hing) - 1 pinch

Prepare the potato masala.  In a thick bottomed pan,  heat oil. 
Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, hing powder,  and curry leaves.
Add the green peas, onion and green chillies and saute  well .
Add turmeric powder and salt to taste.
Add the mashed cooked potato and mix well to the mixture.
Remove from heat and set aside.

Once cold, make small potato masala balls. Keep aside.
Butter the bread slices or buns and fry them in a pan.
Mix the bajji flour with the corn flour and mix well with enough water.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
Take the potato balls one by one and dip in the bajji mix batter and fry it until golden brown.

Take the butter fried bread  slices or bun.  Apply ketchup on one slice and the sweet chutney and another slice.  To serve to adults, you can add green spicy chutney instead of ketchup.   Place the fried potato balls in between and make a sandwich.
It can be eaten as a breakfast or as an evening snack with hot tea.
