Mumbai Roadside Sandwich

This sandwich is easy to make since you only need to make the green chutney and slice veggies. If you are short on time, this is a great solution for a quick meal. This sandwich is one of my favorites and I can eat it at anytime of the day! Cut the sandwich into pieces and enjoy it with some chutney and ketchup.

Prep time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serving:  4


For the sandwich:

  • 8 slices of bread
  • 1 cucumber peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 medium sized potatoes boiled, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 1 medium sized beet boiled, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 2 tomatoes sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 medium size onion peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 8 teaspoons green chutney 
  • Butter as required
  • Sandwich masala as required (ready made)
  • tomato ketchup as required (ready made)
For the green chutney:
  • 1 cup of coriander leaves (clean and washed)
  • 1/2 cup of spinach leaves (clean and washed)
  • 5 to 6 small chilies
  • 2 bread slices
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • a little water for grinding
For garnish: (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon shredded beetroot
  • 1 tablespoon shredded cucumber
  1. To make the chutney, grind all of the ingredients in a mixer to create a smooth paste. The consistency of the chutney should be thick.
  2. Slice all the veggies and keep handy
  3. On a chopping board, chop the thick edges of the bread gently (I used thin slices to make the sandwich, where you don't need to cut edges)
  4. Spread butter on one side of each of the bread slices and then apply green chutney to that same side of bread
  5. Add cucumber and potato slices to the bread, sprinkling some sandwich masala over them.
  6. Place slices of tomato, onion and beets, adding a little more sandwich masala on top. 
  7. Cover with another slice of bread to create your sandwich. Repeat the process with the rest of the bread. Slice into squares or triangles. 
  8. Your Mumbai sandwich is ready, garnish with shredded beets and cucumber
  9. Serve sandwich immediately with chutney and ketchup
