Patra Sandwich In Under 10 Minutes

I generally do not buy a lot of frozen food, but I do stock on patra. Patra is popular side dish from Gujarat, made with the leaf of taro root rolled with besan flour and spices. These rolled logs  are steamed, then sliced into discs and seasoned. I have not tried making them so I enjoy deep brand's frozen patra. They are perfect for a late night snack on weekends. A month ago, I had to make lunch, but was not in the mood to cook. I suggest sandwiches and everyone agreed. I was out of veggie patties but found a packet of patra in my freezer. As they say, "necessity is the mother of invention", I used patra to make the sandwiches. It was such a hit and now I make it often. The coconut seasoning along with the sweet salt and spicy taste from the warm patra along with fresh veggies is  a big winner for me.


Cutting Board


Bread - 2 slices or 1 roll sandwich bread
Patra - I box of deep patra
Tomato - 1 thinly sliced
Onion - a few slices

1. Toast the bread, heat up the patra in a microwave safe bowl.

2. Place the patra on the bread, add the dressing or the chutneys. Top it with tomatoes and onions. cover with another bread slice and serve them warm with a smoothie or cool drink in summer and chai in winter.
