Bombay Grilled Sandwich

I first saw this sandwich on Delhi Belle's blog and followed her links to the Gourmet Cartographer. I 'googled' the sandwich and found it was very popular and a huge street food favorite. I just had to find out what the fuss was all about.


Bombay Grilled Double Decker Sandwich

3 slices Sandwich Bread (I used brown bread)
1/4 cup Chutney (grind together 1 cup cilantro leaves + 1/4 cup mint leaves + 1 green chilli + 1 tsp water)
1 Tomato, sliced thin
1 small Onion, sliced thin
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, sliced thin
1 Potato, boiled, peeled and mashed with a tsp of salt
2 tsp Chaat Masala
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated (I used Mozzarella)

Spread each slice of bread with butter on one side. Spread chutney over the butter. Sprinkle with chaat masala.

On one slice add the tomato and bell pepper slices. On the second slice, add the mashed potato and onion slices. Top both slices with the grated cheese.


Arrange the potato slice over the tomato slice (veggie sides up). Top the potato slice with the 3rd slice, chutney side down. Grill on a grill pan or use a sandwich maker. Its done when the cheese melts.

Serve with a spicy ketchup. If you can make it that far - I waited about 5 seconds before I ate it (and that was only because the cheese was so hot!). It was THAT good. Worth every word of all the fuss!

This is my submission for Waiter There's Something In My... Picnic. If anyone is bringing this to the picnic, it's going to be a huge hit.

I'd like to also send this to this month's SnackShots featuring Sandwiches!

"what the fuss was all about?" for 10 bucks my stomach is full and i've had the yummiest sandwich i could have ever eaten. its seriously so good, when you go to bbay, you have to have to have that sandwich. :D

butter is slapped onto the bread, vegetables are piled on top on another until you think they could collapse and the cheese is so much that its melted all over the sanwich!!! its just delicious.
