Bombay Sandwich

I am presenting a simple chaat sandwich recipe for the penultimate day. This sandwich is popularly known by the name Bombay Sandwich –a sandwich with yummy green chutney spread and veggies and cheese of course. I took the easy route, instead of preparing spicy potato filling, I just went with boiled potato slices which in turn reduced the cooking time and made this recipe to fall under the category of “Under 30 minutes” recipe. :-)

I got the base recipe from R’s mom but I thought of trying this sandwich, either with Dabeli potato filling or samosa potato filling. But to my luck, I didn’t have any beets when I prepared those two recipes. When I was chatting with my friend (who gave me the Chivda recipe) regarding this Bombay sandwich recipe, she suggested the boiled potato slices instead of mashed potato curry. And also asked me to try it with Amul cheese and butter to make it utterly butterly delicious. :-)  I usually buy unsalted butter from Costco and prepare ghee. So for this recipe I went with Amul cheese and butter and luckily the Indian grocery stores here had both.

I am still a novice food photographer and I am experimenting and learning photography each and every day.  I wasn’t satisfied with the initial pictures as I messed up my setup. Since it is an “Under 30 minutes” recipe, I thought of preparing the sandwich again and click new set of pictures. I did prepare the recipe, but didn’t get a chance to click it again properly. With the big event coming up, either I am running like a headless chicken or glued with my laptop, coding. That’s why I kept postponing the recipe and finally gave up and here I am with my initial set pictures. I am hoping to update the pics soon.   bombaysandwich  Ingredients:

  • Medium size Potato – 1
  • Medium size beetroot – 1
  • Medium size onion – 1
  • Medium size tomato – 1
  • Green chutney – 1 tsp for each sandwich
  • Amul Cheese Slices – 1 for each sandwich
  • Butter – as required for spreading
  • Salt and pepper to sprinkle (I didn’t use any)
  • Water for steaming the veggies.

Method:

Prep-Work:

  • Prepare the green chutney or store bought ones works fine too.
  • Slice the tomatoes and onions into thin round slices.
  • Make sure the butter is at room temperature.
  • Remove the brown edges from the bread. (This is optional)

Boiling Beets and Potatoes:

 I felt slicing the veggies and then steaming them was pretty easy.  But you can try the other way round too.

  • Peel the potato and beet skin.
  • Slice them into thin rounds using the slicer.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add the sliced potatoes and add about 1 cup of water and microwave for 5 minutes or until the potato slices are tender.
  • Similarly in a microwave safe bowl, add the sliced beets and add about 1 cup of water and microwave for 5 minutes or until the beet slices are tender.

Steps:

  • Set all the ingredients ready like below.
  • First apply butter on one slice of the bread and then green chutney on the other slice.
  • Layer the veggies in your preferred order.

  2. Made these very sandwiches on Tuesday for dinner :) Love how you have made a healthier version by adding veggies! I know how frustrating it is not get the photos the way you want them to. But believe me, it is okay. These are good and again, it is the effort and recipe that matters the most :) Good luck with your big event and big hugs too :)
