A very famous Mumbai street food sandwich recipe🥪 But not only in streets, it is also common in many restaurants in Mumbai. But the sandwich carries the name as “Bombay Sandwich” ( with the old name of Mumbai).
We were in Mumbai for 2 years and I have a big attachment towards this sandwich. Normally, Bombay sandwiches are made with lots of boiled or steamed vegetables, onion, tomato, cucumber,green chutney, chat masala with butter and cheese.
After a long time, I had these sandwiches again at my friend’s place in Jo’burg. Being a Maharashtrian, she makes them so good. Due to my attachment towards cooking, I wanted her to write down the recipe. So, this is her recipe.
These sandwiches are very healthy as it has many vegetables stuffed inside. Italian herbs, I have used in this recipe is optional. Use it if you have or you can skip it. Black salt, I have used can be substituted with normal salt too. But black salt gives better taste.
Normally these sandwiches are made with three slices of bread with vegetables layered inbetween them. But I have used only two slices of bread to make it. Bombay sandwich is made with white bread in the streets of Mumbai. But I have used brown bread as it is healthy. You can decide as per your preference.
These sandwiches are perfect for breakfast or for an evening tea-time snack along with any kind of sauce🥪
