Baguettes and Sandwiches make an easy meal when you dont want to waste time. I sometimes am short of time and i simply love baguettes. This time i filled mine with an Indian “ALOO TIKKI” which is a potato patty and i spread 2 different chutneys to give it that extra flavor and hotness. You can use any kind of sauce or chutney.
FOR THE POTATO PATTY
1 cup of boiled potatoes, mashed
1 good pinch of Nitu Didi cumin seeds
1 good pinch of Nitu Didi lemon pepper
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs or grated bread
2 tablespoons of finely chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste and green chillies chopped if you want
mix all of the above together and form into flat rounds( patty) . Heat some oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry these patties till golden brown,
slice the baguette in half and spread one side with green chutney and one side with red chutney and then put the patties in the mddle, Slightly press palms to flatten it ( see pic) and eat!!!!

1 cup of coriander leaves with 2 tablespoons of mint leaves and green chillies to taste with 4 flakes of garlic and a small piece of ginger
add salt and sugar to taste and also about 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid crystals
