Have you ever wondered why bread-based snacks taste so wonderful when had on the roadside? While part of the credit goes to the experienced hand of the vendor who makes them day in and day out, it is also partly due to the way the bread is cooked on a tava with loads of butter! While electric toasters have replaced the tava in some sandwich counters, many roadside vendors still use the humble tava to make their droolworthy fare! So, why not do the same at home? This Potato and Corn Sandwich on a Tava tastes simply too awesome, as the peppy taste and texture of the stuffing combines awesomely with the buttery crispness of bread cooked on a tava. The stuffing also has a brilliant mix of ingredients like potatoes, carrots, corn, green chutney and cheese, which gives it a great mouth-feel as well as vibrant taste. Enjoy this snack immediately after cooking, before it gets soft and chewy. You can also try other recipes like Tomato Ketchup and Potato Wafers.
