I’m going to bring you yet another Mumbai street food recipe from my college days. Bombay may have changed it’s name to Mumbai but this is still known as the Bombay Sandwich. This sandwich consists of soft white bread, spread with soft butter and green chutney and layered with thin slices of tomato, cucumber and boiled potato. It’s dusted with chaat masala for an extra chatpata flavour. Onion rings in this sandwich are optional and should be used at your own risk.BombaySandwich_H

When I went to art college, a vendor just outside our gates would prepare these delicious sandwiches for the hungry masses that gathered to devour them in between classes. There was even a distinction between the use of butter – sada or Amul they would ask – sada meaning ordinary butter and Amul being the leader in dairy products in India. Without a doubt, the best part of this sandwich is the green chutney which I’m going to show you how to make so lets gets started.

  1. Okay, I got to admit, the boiled potato part threw me for a loop. But I love potatoes. In Spain they also use potatoes in some types of sandwiches, which I have learned to love over the years. I love chutney and cucumber, so I am pretty sure the sandwich would be a winner for me. Very intriguing sandwich:)

  2. I love the idea of all these flavours together! And it sounds like the ideal student food, too. I bet it would have been as much of a hit near any university in Canada!
