 Method:

 Boil the potatoes and mash them.









 Add coriander leaves, salt, garam masala , bread crumbs and mix well.






 Make cutlets as big as idlis.







 Shallow fry them and set aside.










 Cut the onion and tomato into thin round slices.







 Take idlis and cut out the bulge from one side to get a flat surface.
 Fry them lightly to get a nice colour resembling a bun.
