the coriander chutney can be made a day in advance and kept in the fridge. this chutney is multi purpose. you can add it to your sandwiches or have it with your pakoras or chaat.

this veg sandwich from bombay aka mumbai used to be one of my favorite snack during the college days. when i would be hungry and sometimes without a tiffin box, me and my friends would go to the sandwich stall opposite our college and have the plain or toasted veg sandwich. we were regular at the the sandwich guy’s stall and thus he would tailor make the sandwiches for us, as per our preferences.

in mumbai, one gets to see so many sandwich stalls. my sis is also so fond of these sandwiches, specially the toasted ones. whenever we would go to any restaurant in mumbai, we always knew what she is going to order first – a toast sandwich. so this post is dedicated to my sis who is a fan of the bombay sandwiches. these sandwiches are a also a popular bombay street food.

when i was working on the pics of the vegetable sandwich the other night, i was drooling over the pics myself. so made it again today for the morning brunch. i love this any day. you can also check bombay style veg cheese toast sandwich recipe.

dairy butter is used in the veg sandwiches, but you could easily use vegan butter. you can also toast these vegetable sandwiches if you prefer.

recipe notes

tips for making sandwich recipe:

  1. you can cook the potato in the microwave. wash the potato well. prick the potatoes with a fork and microwave in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
  2. when the beetroot & potatoes are getting cooked, you can slice the other veggies and make the chutney.
  3. you can use whole wheat bread or brown bread or multigrain bread or white bread. but the best taste in veg sandwich comes with white bread.
  4. dairy butter is used in these veg sandwiches. but you could easily use vegan butter.
  5. you can also toast these veg sandwiches if you prefer.

how to make veg sandwich recipe:

a) preparing coriander chutney:

1. take 1 cup tightly packed coriander leaves, ½ tsp chaat masala powder, 1 to 2 green chilies (chopped) in a chutney grinder jar. i usually add 2 to 3 green chilies as we prefer a bit spicy chutney in the sandwiches. you can also add half-half of coriander leaves and mint leaves. just add a pinch or two of salt as chaat masala already has salt in it.

2. grind the chutney ingredients till smooth. no need to add water. but if you cannot grind, then add 1 or 2 tsp of water. i did not add water as there was enough moisture after rinsing the coriander leaves to help them grind to a smooth chutney.

2. thinly slice the other veggies like 1 medium tomato, 1 small to medium onion and 1 medium cucumber. before slicing the cucumber to get the bitterness out from it, follow this step – just slice the top part first. then give a few slits to the cucumber on top with a knife. rub the top sliced part with the rest of the cucumber. you will see a froth like substance on cucumber. doing this method gets rid of the bitterness in the cucumber. slice the frothy part of the cucumber. rinse and peel it and then thinly slice.

  2. tried this recipe. Absolutely yummy… Although I made toasted sandwich. Also applied tomato sauce on one of the slices and green chutney on the other… no butter inside.. loved the recipe overall… good and nutritious..

    • thanks Snehal. toast sandwiches can be easily made and tomato sauce can also be used. in fact butter can be given a skip and some olive oil can also be used.

  3. Hi Dassana

    It was awesome and vegrecipesofindia is an everyday companion for me and I would like to cook ya everyone does but like to cook differently. In that way I love your recipes and served this to my Son today and he enjoyed.

    • pleased to now this thank you so much sriram for your positive and encouraging words 🙂

  4. Is there a way I can avoid the potatoes and use something else instead?The taste was just not right without the potatoes.

    • in bombay veg sandwiches potatoes are a must. without potatoes, something will be felt missing in the taste. i would not suggest to substitute anything else with potatoes. a tuber that does come close to potatoes when boiled is tapioca. so you can give a try with tapioca slices.

  5. Wud like to get more recipe

  26. Mint-cilantro chutney is one of my favorite things. I was taught to make it with tamarind rather than lemon.
