It is said that food has memories attached to it. Vegetable sandwiches are my daddy’s Favourite. I fondly remember, the day when we use to have vegetable sandwich for dinner, my mummy would be so relaxed that evening. As all she had to do was to make batch of fresh Green Sandwich Chutney (we usually have it in our fridge), boil some potatoes and cut vegetables.
After that my daddy would take the charge and make us delicious vegetable sandwiches. He had his unique way of layering vegetables.
I love to have it for picnics. I avoid using tomatoes though. As it leaves it soggy if kept for Long time. It is easy, flavourful, stomach feeling and on the go snack. It is a good option for lunch box as well.
For this sandwich we will apply butter and green chutney on bread. Do not avoid butter, it will truly bring out the Flavours of green chutney. Then layer all six vegetable seasoned with Chaat Masala.
I have used boiled potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots and green bell pepper. We can even use beet root to add more colour to sandwich as well as nutrition. But personally I am not a beet root fan. Finally sprinkle some grated cheese on top and seal the sandwich with green chutney and butter topped bread. Cut it into two or four pieces. Drizzle some tomato ketchup, and sprinkle with some sev/gujiya/murukku whatever is readily available with you.
In a typical roadside sandwich stall, it would be served in four different variations.
1) Vegetable sandwich ( recipe without cheese )
2) Cheese vegetable sandwich ( what I have made )
3) Vegetable toast ( recipe without cheese , toasted in sandwich machine)
4) Cheese Vegetable toast ( my recipe , toasted in sandwich machine)
So you can Choose your variation.
Do make sure that when you eat it, you dig in completely and reach every layer in a bite. You would have a blast of taste in your mouth as it has crunchy, cheesy,sweet, tangy, spicy, creamy all Flavours in one go.
My last word would be if you are Indian street food fan you must try this. Trust me you won’t regret, it will leave you craving for more.Enjoy this Rhylicious sandwich.
