Bombay Vegetable Sandwich


If you ask anybody who has lived in Bombay about the best places to eat in the city, the road-side sandwichwala or panipuriwala or....will be in his list. Although I was born and brought up in kerala, did get married to a bombayite. I realised the above mentioned is true during my short stay in bombay.The first road side food I had in Bombay was a vegetable sandwich. I can still recollect that wonderful taste.
I got this recipe from my sister-in-low who is very fond of this dish. very simple and easy to make.Commonly White bread is preferable for this sandwich but I am using a healthy multigrain bread here.

Recipe:-

Ingredients:-
Bread - 4 slices
Tomato - 1
Cucumber - 1
Potato -1
Red onion - 1
Coiander-mint Chutney - 4 tbsp
Chat masala - 1/2 tsp
Crushed peppercorns - 1/2 tsp
Butter - As needed
Salt - to taste

1) Cut onions,tomato and cucumber into thin roundels.Boil and Peel potato. Sice into roundels.
2) Trim the edges of bread and apply butter on each slice.
3) Apply coriander-mint chutney liberally on each slice.
4) Layer potato,tomato,onion and cucumber on two bread slices.

5) Sprinkle chat masala,peppercorns and salt.
6) Cover with another slice of bread and press it lightly.
7) Cut into four equal portions and serve it with tomato sauce.


Recipe for Coriander-mint chutney

Coriander leaves-1 cup
Mint leaves - 1/2 cup
Green chilli - 2 or 3
Sugar - 1/4 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Black salt - to taste
Grind altogether by adding some water. Chutney is ready.
Happy Cooking!!

what you told is correct. i always enjoyed the roadside sandwitches and panipuri, bhelpuri either from bandra or from dombivili. always i use to get down dombivili and take roadside sandwitches. it is really delicious and mouthwatering.
