Bombay Grilled Sandwich

If you’ve never had this sandwich in India and you were raised in India, were you even raised there 😎😍 This sandwich is that popular. Its equally delicious hot or cold, it packs well as a quick pick-me-up snack, or as lunch or ‘tiffin’ as we used to call it. It is sold on the streets of India both at the road stalls erected at random ‘wherever there was an opportunity for such’, as well as the posh restaurants and hotels as the ‘safer’ way of eating Indian street food. The green chutney is one that is served with many Indian fast foods with its main ingredient being coriander leaf along with mint, lime, green chili and ginger. It can be used in sandwiches, wraps, as well as served as an accompaniment for samosa, pakora or any bhaji @sarchakra

Notes

I have a special love for Amul butter (not sponsored). It reminds me of my childhood, when that was the only butter available and that was what was slathered in every sandwich that was ever made either at home or outside. We weren’t spoilt for choices and life was far more simple than it is today. But you can most certainly use any salted butter you have in hand.
