Aloo Kathi Roll
There are times when you want to open the fridge and whip out a decent meal in a minute. Until recently I would always have a stock of frozen dishes either store bought or home made, veggie burgers, an array of sauces and dressings, cheese slices, chicken sausages, etc. And we would come up with different sandwiches, rolls, paninis in ever possible combination. Whenever we had a lot of people staying over, I would make this aloo stuffing in advance. We would make sanwiches in the sandwich maker with buttered bread or bread and a slice of cheese and the aloo stuffing. This also tastes good as a kathi roll or frankie stuffing. You can also make it a bit watery and serve as a side with pooris. Or even in a dosa and you have your favorite (special) masala dosa.

Cauliflower, chopped to 1/2 inch pieces: 2 cups

Boil the aloo and mash roughly.
Sprinkle some water on the cauliflower and peas and microwave for about 5 minutes or until cooked.
Heat some oil and add the jeera. Then add the cloves and cinnamon. If you dont like chewing on the spices by accident, skip this and increase the garam masala to 1/2 tsp. Then add the ginger garlic paste, curry leaves and chopped onions and fry well till brown. Now add the vegetables, salt, sambar powder, red chili powder, garam masala 1/2 cup of water and mix well. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add chopped coriander leaves.
To assemble the kathi rolls:
Take a roti or chapati, spread some spicy sauce, add some chopped onions and spread the potato masala in a line down the middle. Roll and serve with more sauce of your choice.
