  • Saute Pan
  • Small Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper or Aluminum Foil
  • Knife & Cutting Board


  • ¼ cup mashed boiled Potato
  • ¼ cup chopped Beans
  • ¼ cup chopped Carrots
  • ¼ cup chopped Onion
  • 2 small chopped Green Chilies
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed or chopped
  • 2-3 teaspoon Oil I used 3 tsp
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt Adjust to taste
  • 4 Bread Slices I used white bread
  • 2 teaspoon Butter
  • ½ cup grated Cheese I used mozzarella


  • Boil potato and chop the vegetables.
  • In a pan add onions, chilies, beans, carrots and cook for 2-3 minutes until onions are translucent.
  • Add salt and mashed potato, mix and cook for another 3-5 minutes until beans & carrots are tender and potato is fried.
  • You can prepare the above steps in advance and follow the below steps before serving.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper.
  • Remove the crust and butter bread slices.
  • Cut each bread slice into 4 square pieces.
  • Spread ½ – ¾ teaspoon of vegetable mixture on the canapes.
  • Place bread slices or canapes on a lined baking tray. Top them off with grated cheese.
  • Bake in 350 F oven for 6-8 minutes or until the cheese melts on the canapes. If there is some excess cheese on the baking sheet, that should turn golden brown.
  • Temperature of ovens vary. Hence check the canapes 6 minutes into baking and bake for another 2 minutes until cheese melts. Serve hot.


  • Vegetables -Recipe calls for potato, bean and carrots for the spread. You can use bell peppers, corn, spring onions or any vegetable of your choice.
  • Seasoning & Flavors - Recipes uses only green chilies for heat. I used amchur or dry mango powder for a tangy taste in the past. Use chaat masala for a different flavor. Use your imagination and play around with the spices for a different flavor.
  • Pre-plan - Prepare the vegetable filling up to a day in advance and assemble canapes 20-30 minutes before serving.
