For today's recipe, I have another one of Konda's lunch box shared. I packed her this sandwich couple of weeks back and she loved it so much. The addition of mint with the aloo makes a great difference to the overall taste. And the sprouts makes it very healthy. I haven't used much of oil or butter, than what's required.
It's also very quick to make when you have sprouts handy. MW potato hardly takes time. This is not just a kid friendly dish, but for elders as well. Sandwiches are such an easy one to make when you have stuffing ready, especially it's easy to convince kids who like them.
