The recipe is similar to the Bombay veg sandwich recipe on the blog. It is the grilling that makes the difference. This is also a Mumbai street food. The name of Bombay has been changed to Mumbai.

In this post, I have shown the step by steps pics to make A really good grilled sandwich in an electric grill sandwich maker. you can follow this method to make any grilled sandwich. You can also use an open grill or use a stovetop toaster to make these sandwiches.

Grilling the veg sandwich makes the bread slices golden crisp and many people like it that way. I am personally fond of both the ways… Toasting as well as grilling the sandwich. But my hubby is more fond of grilled sandwich. So its varies from person to person.

Tips for making grilled sandwich

  • You can use fresh bread or even a day old bread. I have used brown bread here. You can use whole wheat bread, multi grain bread or just a good healthy sandwich loaf.
  • The amount of vegetable toppings can be adjusted as per the size of the bread loaf.
  • You can add vegetables of your choice in this sandwich to make it more healthy. You can easily add boiled beetroot, capsicum (bell pepper) in it.
  • I have used coriander chutney in the sandwiches. You can use any green chutney of your choices like mint coriander chutney or even just plain mint chutney.
  • You can prepare the coriander chutney and boil the potatoes a night before and then refrigerate them. So in the morning quick hours, you just need to slice the cucumber, tomatoes etc and assemble the sandwiches.

Serve this veg grill sandwich with green chutney or tomato ketchup.

How to make grilled sandwiches

1. Prep up everything before you start with preparing the sandwiches. Boil the potatoes and then slice them in rounds. Chop the cucumber, tomatoes and onions in thin round slices. Prepare the green chutney.

2. On slices of whole wheat bread or brown bread or white bread, spread butter followed with green chutney. The butter has to be spread evenly and a bit liberally (if you prefer) so that on applying the chutney, the bread does not become soggy. To make the sandwich healthy use the whole wheat bread.

3. place a few slices of potatoes and then sprinkle with one to two pinches of chaat masala and roasted cumin powder.

4. Place a few tomato, cucumber and onion slices over the bread. Sprinkle with one to two pinches or more of chaat masala, roasted cumin powder and black salt.

5. cover the vegetable topped slices with the remaining buttered and chutneyed slices of bread. Spread butter on the top of the slices.

6. Preheat the grill. When the grill is ready, gently place the buttered side facing the bottom of the grill, making sure your hands don’t touch the grill (be careful when doing this. If you cannot do this then just skip the above step. Instead spread butter once the sandwiches are grilled). Now spread butter on the top side which is facing you.

  1. Can we pack it fir kids tiffin? They may consume it 3 hours after making.
    I have never packed sandwiches till date. Please let me know if it would turn soggy

    • grilled sandwiches are best served hot. they become chewy and dense after cooling. for making sandwiches for tiffin, you can use recipes where the sandwich stuffing is a dry cooked preparation like chana masala or cooked beans or roasted or sauteed vegetables and where no chutney is used. even besan chilla or vegetables cutlet or falafel, make a good filling option with hummus or mayonnaise. sandwiches made with fresh veggies, chutney will get soggy in the tiffin box. hope this helps.

    • thanks niki. this one is an indian brand – bajaj. till now no issues. easy to clean too and with removable both grill and toaster plates. i had checked kent too. it was also good, but too big for the space i have in my kitchen. the advantage was it can be used as an open grill too.

  22. Great looking grilled veg sandwich recipe. In fact, all your recipes look pretty incredible. I like seeing your Eastern twists on Western foods – such as this sandwich. I never would have thought to put potato in it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.5 stars
