Sesame Toasts



Ingredients:

Slices of bread....................................3, cut into three equal parts across the breadth to yield nine toasts

Potatoes.............................................4-5
Green coriander................................abt 2 tsps chopped leaves
Green chilli.......................................1 or acc to taste, de-seeded and chopped fine
Cornstarch........................................1 tsp
Ginger...............................................1/2 tsp, grated very fine
Salt
Sesame seeds....................................acc to requirement
Olive oil


Peel the potatoes, halve them and put on to boil. When they are done perfectly through the centres remove. Do not overboil, they should not break in the water. Drain and put the potatoes in a colander. Break them up into smaller pieces and leave to dry out remaining moisture.

Grate the ginger on a very fine grater.

Dry roast the sesame seeds.

Mash the potatoes, add the cornstarch, ginger, green coriander, chilli and salt. Mix well.

Now spread each portion of bread with the potato mixture, pressing it down gently but firmly on the sides. Then sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the potato mash and tap the sesame into the
mixture.

Heat a bit of olive oil in a non-stick fry pan and place the slices bread side down. When the base has browned turn them potato side down. Allow to brown on low heat. Remove and serve hot with a green chutney or any other sweet-sour sauce.
