Samosa sandwich recipe with step by step photos – Samosa sandwich is one of the known street food dish from Mumbai. Samosas along with some veggies are stuffed in bread slices and then grilled or toasted. It is tasty as well as filling. In Mumbai samosa is often accompanied with pav or bread. So you do get snacks like Samosa pav, samosa burger and samosa sandwich.
Making samosa sandwich is very easy. All you need are some samosas, sandwich chutney, a few vegetable slices and bread. I had made surplus homemade samosas and so made sandwiches with them. For carb lovers samosa sandwich is carb heaven.
In this post, I am not sharing the entire method of making samosa as then the post becomes very long. You can use the regular Punjabi samosa to make these sandwiches.
The recipes of the key elements that you will need to make these sandwiches are given below:
Do note that you can also use store brought samosa and bread. Instead of Punjabi samosa you can also add Singara (Bengali Samosa). For the veggies I have used onion, tomato and cucumber. Capsicum can also be added.
These tasty sandwich samosa also makes for a good party snack that is easy to assemble and toast. You can prep ahead the chutneys a day earlier and refrigerate them.
If you have surplus homemade samosa and don’t know what to do with them then you can either make this sandwich or samosa chaat or samosa pav.
You can serve samosa sandwich hot with mint chutney or tomato ketchup or coriander chutney or any green chutney of your choice. It makes for a filling and tasty tea time snack.
How to make Samosa Sandwich
1. First assemble all the ingredients as shown in the below photo.
2. Take the bread slices and spread some butter on them. You can slice the edges or corners of the bread if you prefer.
You can use any type of bread like whole wheat bread, multi grain bread, brown bread or white bread. Best to use fresh bread that has a soft crumb.
4. Take a Samosa and crush it lightly. Place the lightly crushed samosa on one bread slice.
5. Place two to three slices each of onion, cucumber and tomatoes. You can also add capsicum slices, if you like.
Some grated cheese can also be added. Tomatoes can be skipped if you do not like it. Some boiled potato slices can also be added.
If you like paneer then you can top up the sandwich with a few thin slices of paneer or grated paneer.
6. Sprinkle 1 to 2 pinches of roasted cumin powder, chaat masala or sandwich masala and black salt or regular salt all over the vegetable slices.
7. Cover with the second bread slice.
8. Place samosa sandwich in a preheated sandwich maker.
9. Grill or toast till the sandwich is crisp and golden.
10. Remove the samosa grilled sandwich carefully. Slice and then serve hot.
Assemble and toast the remaining sandwiches in batches in the same way.
11. Serve samosa sandwich hot or warm with mint chutney or tomato ketchup or green chutney or any dipping sauce of your choice.
