A Mumbai Sandwich and an Invitation to Join us for #IndianFoodPalooza

Serves Serves 4     adjust servings

Preparation 10 min

Cook Time 5 min

Total Time 15 minutes


  • 2 medium sized potatoes (boiled)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon chopped green chili peppers
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Salt
  • Green hot cilantro chutney (you can also buy it at any Indian store in case you do not want to make it at home)
  • White or Wheat Bread slices (I just used what I normally have on hand which is was an oat nut bread)
  • Slices of cucumber, onion, tomato
  • Butter


  1. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds. Once they pop add onion. Cook it until they turn slightly golden.
  2. Add turmeric, chopped chili peppers, coriander powder and salt. Mix and quickly add boiled mashed potatoes otherwise masala will start burning.
  3. Mix everything well together. Set aside. Do not need to cook it.
  4. Take a slice of bread, put potato filling as much as you want. I normally put a thin later covering the whole surface.
  5. In the second slice put a thin layer of cilantro chutney. Place it over the slice with potato filling (surface with chutney should be facing outside and not towards the potato.
  6. Now over that chutney layer put slices of onion, cucumber and tomato. Sprinkle cheese on top of veggies if using. Place another slice on top covering the tomato, onion and cheese layer.
  7. Brush some butter on both the exposed sides of the sandwich. Grill or pan fry until browned. Press the sandwich with a spatula to flatten the layers together.
  8. Cut the sandwich into two triangle and serve with hot sauce or some sweet mango chutney.

Recipe Notes

I had leftover potatoes that had been seasoned with some butter, cream, salt and pepper but the recipe does not call for that; they were so good though that I would probably do it that way again.
