These days, sandwich is a very common ANYTIME food item across the world. This below recipe is a perfect Indian version of a sandwich which is generally seen as a street food in India. In this recipe, we use the Green Chutney as the sandwich spread and potato filling as the stuffing. 

Just try this Spicy version of a sandwich with the infusion of Indian Masala. I make these sandwiches not only for snack but also for my kids lunch boxes. They just love them just with the tomato sauce.

The same recipe can be done over a tawa/pan on stove top if you do not have a sandwich maker. I have given the pictures for both the methods.

Possible alterations for the recipe, ‘Indian Masala Sandwich’:

The best option to replace potato, is sweet potato.Tastes excellent too.

If you think red chilli powder would be spicier for kids, just eliminate or else replace with freshly ground black pepper.

I have used Plant Based butter & Plant Based cheese in this recipe. 

To make the recipe completely Whole Food Plant Based, just eliminate the butter & cheese completely. The Green Chutney spread, is more than sufficient for giving a great taste.

Tips:

  • If you are a Vegan, you will have to use a vegan one or just eliminate it (not suitable though).
  • I used whole wheat bread too, but any bread perfectly suits.
  • Tomato sauce works as a perfect dip for these spicy sandwiches.
  • Don’t skip the green chutney, which is a must .
  • Adjust the salt & spice as per your taste.
  • STORAGE: Make the stuffing well before, store it in the fridge and use it whenever needed.
  • Or else make the sandwiches, wrap them in cling film and store for 1 day in fridge. Reheat them before serving.

Result:

  • The taste of this, Indian masala sandwich, is blasting with flavours from the green chutney & masala powders.
  • My kids always vote for these sandwiches, whenever I ask them for which sandwich filling they would like to have.
  • Even when I pack them in my kids lunch boxes, they always get the boxes empty.
