Indian Chutney Sandwich

In my Mint Chutney post I mentioned growing up as a teenager eating these sandwiches on the street… you would see this huge crowd, get close to see what was going on… you would find a guy with his bicycle parked to the side of the road, with all and I mean all ingredients in this big bin which would sit behind his cycle. Talk about squeezing a taco truck onto a cycle… that is what it was! He would be a one-man show! The guy who makes the sandwich and also handles the money… Umm, hygiene… we all overlooked it. I think the understanding was I’m building my immunity, or did I just ignore it waiting for the sandwich to be handed over? Aah, memories… 😛

You can vary this sandwich, skip the potatoes, go with just the tomatoes and cucumbers or even just cucumbers… My 2 year old has been lapping them up just plain! Bread, butter and the chutney! 🙂 Which makes me a satisfied and happy Mom! 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

NOTE:
1. If you don’t care what kind of bread you consume, then these would be best with a soft white bread.
2. Use a bread that doesn’t have a strong taste of its own. Something like multigrain tends to take over a sandwich unless you have mustard in there. The chutney, cucumber, etc.. are mild flavors and they need to be felt through the sandwich and not get over-powered. Enjoy!

Indian Chutney Sandwich

Makes: 2 sandwiches
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Ready in: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized boiled potato
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 persian cucumber (traditionally an english cucumber is used but I didn’t have it)
  • butter to spread on the bread
  • 1 tbsp of mint chutney or as needed
  • 4 slices of bread (use GF bread if GF)
  • Chaat Masala (optional)
  • salt to taste

Directions

1. Slice the potato, tomato and cucumber into thin slices, approximately the same thickness.

2. Toast the bread lightly. I used the minimum setting on my toaster. Butter the bread, and spread the chutney generously.

3. Spread out a single layer of potatoes on one side of the bread. Sprinkle with salt and Chaat masala (if using).

4. Stack a layer of tomatoes over the potatoes.

5. Layer the cucumbers over the tomatoes. Sprinkle salt over the cucumbers as needed.

6. Complete the sandwich by placing the other slice of bread over the cucumbers. Cut the sandwich in half so that it is easier to eat and enjoy! *big grin*
