rai aur tamatarwali sandwhich/tomato and seasoned mustard seeds sandwhich

This rai and tamatar wali sandwhich is one of my favourite and the oldest sandwhich of all,it brings back all my good old childhood memories ,when i was a school going kid i use to go and stay at my cousin's place in vacation as her daughters were very close to me and i use to love playing with them and whenever i use to go this sandwhich was fixed and had to be made ,even that time i was small but i would cherish this flavour with (only) tomatoes and seasoned by mustard seeds on top,i still miss her food,after  my mom if i liked somebody's food was then her's only,i still remember few of her famous dishes which i liked very much ,to name are pachmeli ki sabzi,thin and soft white dhoklas,small garma garam mathris fried and served instantly in the early morning during breakfast with  pickle,her kheer churma which she use to make every month for shyaam baba's ( our god krishna ) prasad,i also loved her chapan bhog prasad which she use to offer god and ofcourse how could i forget her homemade pedas,she was very famous in whole house for making them at home everytime on every occassion,the vaieties she use to make were just incredible and i still miss her food,thanx rekha di for this lovely simple and healthy sandwhich,i still njoy eating them :-)
