Kidney Bean Sandwich Indian Style | Masala Rajma on Sandwich Toast

I know Breakfast Mela is coming to a closure soon, as always I still have a long list of dishes I am yet to prepare. Athamma had soaked these Kidney beans / Rajma for a salad but we didn't get to make it. So since I had planned bread for breakfast I decided to make a stuffing with rajma instead of cheese and jam. Well there are takers for a sandwich only if it's made in the Indian Style, so naturally the stuffing had to be spiced up.

When I think of these spiced lentil spread for sandwich, I remember those potato mint spread I used to make years ago. Though I have quite forgotten what actually went into that now, I would try to recreate that again. But for now let me settle down with a toast that is very delicious.

This goes for my Breakfast Mela 

I also remembered on time that I could send this to another favorite event of mine, My Legume Love Affair 35 hosted by Smitha, an event started by Susan

Kidney Bean Sandwich Indian Style | Masala Rajma on Sandwich Toast

Rajma / Kidney Bean - 1/2 cup
Onions - 1/2 cup
Tomato - 1/2 cup
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 /2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Garam Masala a pinch
Butter - 1/2 tsp

Bread Slices - 8
Butter for toasting.

Method Prepare:

Wash and soak the rajma overnight. sometimes this doesn't get soaked well, so you might have to soak it a little longer. then pressure cook the beans till it is tender.

Then heat a non stick pan, add 1 tsp oil, saute the finely minced onions, saute till it turns colour. Then add ginger garlic paste. cook for couple of minutes.

Then add tomato puree and continue cooking well. Add all the other spices except butter. Cook on high for the spices to get done.

Add 1/2 cup water and bring to boil. Gently mash the beans and mix well. Cook till all the moisture is gone, the beans get into a thick sauce. Add the butter and simmer for 5 mins.

Meanwhile heat a griddle/tawa, grease the bread slices with butter. Toast on both sides. Scoop the stuffing over one slice, place the other slice on this and press well.

Toast the sandwich for couple of minutes until it becomes crispy.

Hope you are sending in your breakfast mela entries soon!
