Indian version of Vegetable/ Vegan Toast Sandwich and an Award

                    Sandwiches are always fulfilling, healthy, tempting and easy to make. These are very common in India and a very popular street food but the home made sandwiches are always hygienic and satiating. I learned this recipe of  'Vegetable Sandwich' from my mother. I made a slight variation of adding 'chaat masala' and making toast of bread loaves which is absolutely optional. I call this a 15 minutes recipe. :). Yes, very easy and so much liked by everyone at home. The preparation just takes 15 minutes; grind the coriander chutney, slice the veggies and its done. I am making a toast of bread loaves and then a toast sandwich but you can simply skip making toast and go with a regular one.
Serving, you all know..... :)

Ingredients: For just 1 sandwich

2 slices of bread (white or brown)
Coriander Green Chutney
Thin slices of each Cucumber, Tomato, Onion, Baked Potato
Baby Spinach
Tomato Ketchup
Indian Chaat Masala - this is available in any Indian store or may buy it here

You will also need a toaster. (optional)


1. Take 2 slices of a bread and make toast of them in a toaster.

2. Spread green chutney evenly on one of the bread slice.

3. Then on the same slice put sliced cucumber, tomato, onion, potato pieces the way you want. Put some baby spinach leaves. You won't see those in this pictures.

4. On the other slice of bread spread tomato ketchup and sprinkle some 'chaat masala'.

5. Now put this slice on the earlier one and cut into 2 or 4 diagonal or vertical-horizontal pieces.


Sandwich tastes great even if you add only cucumber and tomato. I added lettuce leaves once. One can also try beetroot slices. Wear the Chef hats and think of new ideas. Try it...
Some of different veggies/other ingredients which you can add are :

Lettuce leaves
Beetroot slices (blanched)
Grated paneer
Shredded and parboiled carrot

Would like to know different fillings from you gals ???

You can also put butter before applying green chutney, but it would no longer remain vegan :).
This can also be done just with regular bread loaves and not toasting them.

Vegetable Grilled Sandwich

To make grilled sandwich you can use Griller or the Grill plates which come in the sandwich maker.
To make grilled sandwich do not toast the bread. Instead prepare the sandwich with the untoasted regular bread and then apply butter on both the sides of the sandwich (above and bottom) and put it in the griller or the sandwich maker. Grill it till it turns little brown and little crisp.

This one tastes really good and different than the toasted/untoasted sandwich.

Garnish with some cheese  (no more vegan :) ).
