Batata buns

Batata or potatoes are a desi favorite ingredient used in evening snacks. Batata buns are spicy and yummy is the feedback we got.

On a personal note, we wish Daddy a very happy birthday.

Preparation time: 20-30 mins

Serves: 4


Buns/Sandwich bread 6
Potatoes (Aloo) 2
Onion 1
Tomato 1
Chopped coriander 5 tsp
Baked beans 1 cup
Cumin seeds (Jeera) 2 tsp
Cumin powder (Jeera powder) 1tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Chat masala 2 tsp
Green chilli paste 1 tsp
Refined cooking oil/butter 2 tsp
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Wash and boil the potatoes until soft. Alternatively pressure cook up to 2 whistles. Set aside to cool and peel. Mash the potato.

Finely chop the onion, tomato and coriander.

Heat the butter/oil on a pan. Add cumin seeds and as they splutter, add the green chilli paste (or 2 finely chopped green chillies) part of the onions and sauté until the onions are soft and golden.

Add the mashed potato, tomato, a bit of the coriander and mix.

Add the baked beans, salt to taste, cumin powder, red chilli powder and chat masala. Mix well to evenly spice the filling.

Mix together the remaining chopped onion and coriander. Add a pinch of salt, limejuice, and mix well.

Now stuff the filling in between the bun/sandwich bread and garnish with the onion coriander mixture and toast. Another way is to toast and then garnish with the onion mixture.

Either way, serve the batata buns hot with pudina chutney, masala tea and chips. A real desi way to enjoy a weekend winter evening. Beware: the enticing aroma of the filling will pull your husband to put a hand in cooking, so take care of you kitchen.
