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.
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.
