Bread slices buttered and flavored with garlicky coriander chutney, decked with a lot of vegetables and grilled to perfection makes Bombay Grilled Sandwich. If you ask me, it is a very basic grilled veg sandwich. I do not understand why is it called the Bombay Grilled Sandwich? There is nothing so provincial about this sandwich. Anyways, it is said to be sold by the street vendors in Mumbai. Still, I am not much convinced. This is a very easy and simple sandwich recipe. It is pretty much customizable too. To can add or omit the veggies as per your liking or availability. I have used boiled potatoes, sliced onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, etc to make this Bombay Grilled Sandwich. For the spices, as such the sandwich masala is used. However, I do not like it much because of its tanginess. If you like a tangy kick in your sandwich, you can add the sandwich masala. I have flavored these sandwiches with some black pepper powder and roasted cumin seeds powder.
Bread: Typically large triangular bread is used to make the Bombay Grilled Sandwich. However, such bread is not easily available. Therefore you can use the bread of your choice. I have used regular sandwich bread to make this sandwich.
Vegetables: Boiled potatoes, kind of, form the base for these sandwiches. Capsicum adds a great flavor to it. Onions add a nice bite to the sandwich. Tomatoes and cucumber add a lot of freshness to these sandwiches. You can also add in beetroot if you like the same.
Spreads and spices: The bread slices are buttered and thereafter green chutney is applied to these. Well, this is not any ordinary or regular green chutney. Technically, it has a hint of garlic and perfect consistency and smoothness. Here is the recipe for the green chutney that is perfect for these sandwiches. As already mentioned, sandwich masala can be used to pep up the sandwiches. However, I have used salt, black pepper powder, and roasted cumin seeds powder.
