How to make Aloo Toast

What you need

  • Bread: I love using white bread for these toasts as I want a soft squishy bread that will toast nicely but won’t be too overly crunchy with the potatoes.
  • Potatoes: Russets or Idahos work great as they are fluffy and creamy.
  • Onions: I love the way red onions caramelize as they hit the pan when you grill the toast. If you’re not a huge fan of onions you can easily omit these.
  • Aromatics: Fresh ginger, cilantro, fresh lemon juice, and green chilies brighten everything up and give a beautiful herbaceous flavor.
  • Spices: We season with salt, turmeric, red chili powder, and chaat masala. If you’re making it for kids or a group that doesn’t like too much spice, omit the red chili powder!
