Bombay Masala Sandwich Recipe | How to make Bombay Masala Sandwich

Bombay Masala Sandwich is a very popular roadside snack from the city of Mumbai. Between two grilled bread slices smeared with a generous amount of green chutney and butter is a spicy potato mixture topped with onion and tomato slices and grated cheese. The roadside vendors are very generous when it comes to filling it and topping it with cheese. I, however, exercise caution when I make it at home. However, if you like it cheesy you can be as generous as you like!

It is best to have this sandwich when it is freshly made - crisp and hot, along with a cup of masala chai.

Here in Pune, I have been to a very popular roadside joint somewhere in F.C.Road which sells a variety of sandwiches - the most popular among them being Bombay Masala Sandwich and Chocolate Sandwich. Every evening and especially on weekends one can see a huge crowd queueing up there to get a sandwich to munch on. Well, these days I can't imagine going there tagging Baby M with me. So, I end up making it at home.

Bombay Masala Sandwich

8 slices of whole-wheat Bread

For the filling:
2 medium potato, boiled, peeled and mashed
¼ cup green peas
1 green chilli, minced
½ tsp cumin seeds
A sprig of curry leaves
1 tbsp oil
½ tsp red chilli powder

Handful of chopped coriander leaves

To assemble
Thin tomato slices
Thin onion slices
Chaat masala to sprinkle
2 cubes Amul cheese
4 tbsp green chutney
Butter to brush the bread slices


1. Heat a pan and add oil. Add cumin seeds and curry leaves and let them splutter for a few seconds

2. Add the mashed potato, peas, salt and red chili powder and mix well. Cover and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

3. Add garam masala and the chopped coriander leaves and mix again. Take it off heat and let it cool a bit.

4. On one side of each bread slice smear the green chutney. On half of the slices spread the prepared potato mixture in a thin layer. Spread a layer of tomato slices and onion slices. Sprinkle some chaat masala and spread a layer of grated cheese.

5. Cover it with another bread slice with the green chutney side down. Repeat the same with the rest of the slices.

6. On the outer sides of the prepared sandwich, apply butter generously and grill them in a preheated sandwich maker till they are crisp and golden lines form on the outer side.
