Sesame Mushroom Toast – We love open sandwiches at home and sesame toast is one such I’ve been snacking on since my childhood days. So one day while preparing potato toast sandwich which is also commonly called aloo toasty which is a popular street food in India, we decided to make it this aloo toasty like an open sandwich. So coming up with a quick fix, my mum decided to secure the potatoes with a slurry and top with with some sesame. Maida secures the potato mix and sesame adds to a nice crunch and flavor in every bite.
This is a perfect snack for kids specially if you add cheese to this and serve them… they are going to enjoy it!! The filling for this is made of potato mash adding veggies of choice. I have gone ahead and added chopped mushrooms and parsley to the filling. If you wish, feel free to add cheese to your toast. Its a super easy to prepare snack and a quick fix for your hunger pangs. You can prepare this for breakfast or enjoy this as a tea time snack.
