Swati's Grilled Bombay Sandwich : Recipe

Here comes another quick recipe for those hunger pangs! Bombay sandwich/toast. Now I have not been to Mumbai yet, but I know what the sandwich is supposed to be like, with a spicy tempered potato filling. But where's the fun without a bit of experimentation?  So, of course I tweaked the traditional recipe. So here's Bombay Sandwich - my way!

Bombay Sandwich Recipe

It is nothing fancy and can be made with simple everyday ingredients in 10 minutes. I made them for dinner yesterday for the family.
Lets get started then :)

Here is your ingredient list:

Bombay Sandwich Ingredients

For the Corainder Chutney-

  • Corainder leaves (once cup tightly packed)
  • Chopped Tomato (one medium sized)
  • Garlic Cloves (3-4 large)
  • Green Chilli (according to your liking)
  • Salt 
  • A bit of Water
  • Few drops of Mustard Oil

For the Filling-

  • Cucumber
  • Onion
  • Capsicum 
  • Boiled Poatato
  • Tomato
  • Butter
  • Bread slices- 3 per sandwich (white/whole wheat whichever)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chaat masala (optional)
Mix all the ingredients listed for the chutney above in a mixer grinder until it forms a smooth paste. Do not make it runny and thin. Adjust the salt to suit your taste if needed. Thats the chutney done! 

Now for assembling the sandwich: 
Slice all the veggies and the bolied potato first and keep them aside (rings are better but I julienned the capsicum since the rings were too big).
Butter the 3 bread slices (both sides) and apply chutney to only 2 of them. (You could trim the sides if you like it that way, I chose to keep them).

Layer your vegetables on these slices now. Sprinkle salt, pepper and chaat masala on each layer you do. The chutney spread slices are make the top and the bottom of the sandwich and the plain buttered one is for the additional layer. 
Put it in your grill/sandwich maker until it becomes crispy golden brown. Cut into half and enjoy!!

These are made without cheese, but if you are a huge cheese fan (go ahead and put some. You could also make this with two bread slices. I just find that using 3 gives me more space to put in loads of veggies.

Also, you can have them plain without grilling. They taste scrumptious that way too :)

Thats all! Pretty simple right? It is something that will be loved by both children and adults. 
Let us know how it worked for you if you do try this! :)
