What is a Mumbai Masala Toast?

​​A Mumbai masala toast is a street food variation made using toasted bread and potatoes. This recipe has boiled potatoes, cooked in a tomato onion masala and topped over a piece of bread. Between the bread and the potato mash, a generous quantity of cheese is stuffed and the bread and potatoes are sealed together to lock it in. The whole package is topped with some sesame seeds and toasted on a tawa with melted butter so that the top layer of potatoes and sesame gets nice and crispy. And once you slice the toast in half, the hot cheese oozes out. It can be enjoyed as a breakfast item or even as a midday tea snack.
