Easy Cheesy Masala Sandwich
One thing that I always have at home is bread. I love eating plain brad toast with my morning tea and egg burji. Especially on those lazy days when I am not in the mood to make a proper breakfast for everyone at home! Also I love eating home made sandwiches and I make them often as it is not only healthy but also very simple and easy to prepare.
I love experimenting with a lot of sandwich recipes, nothing can beat a good home made sandwich that you made with all your favorites. This Masala Sandwich recipe has been a huge hit amount my family and friends as it can be customized according to your individual taste and liking.
I usually boil potatoes in bulk and keep them in the fridge to put together something very simple like a potato masala for masala dosa or a simple aloo fry to go with rice. And also the spicy green chutney is such a versatile side dish that you can use as a sandwich spread or dip for your fries. The best part is you can make this in a big batch, and freeze in small containers. And it’s ready to use anytime you want.. When you have both these items ready making these sandwiches is really a breeze to pull together as needed, freshly grilled and hot.
Masala sandwich is crispy and tasty toasted sandwich recipe layers with lot of spicy chutney & veggie filling sandwiched between buttery bread makes this a delightful treat for rainy days and a perfect tea time snack.The potato masala is the key ingredient in the sandwich filling. You can customize all other veggies depending on your liking. Add some grated cheese to the filling for a more cheesey sandwich.
This recipe work great with all kind of breads. But I think wholemeal or multigrain would be a healthier option as this is pretty indulgent sandwich.
Butter as needed
Cheese slices as needed
For potato filling:-
OIl- 1 tsp
Potato, boiled & peeled- 2
Cumin & Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Pinch of Turmeric powder

Mint Leaves – 1/2 cup

To make potato filling:-
Add tsp of oil in a pan and add cumin and mustard seeds. Once they start to splutter add turmeric and boiled smashed potato with some salt. Cook if for a minute and turn of the flame and add some freshly chopped coriander leaves.
To make your green chutney:-
Take all the ingredients mentioned under chutney in a blender and puree till smooth. Pour into an air tight container and store in fridge till use. Secret for a creamy green chutney is those bread slices, so dont skip it.
Now all our fillings are ready. You’ll also need spreadable butter, and veggies of your choice. I used cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and capsicum sliced into thin circles. You could add your other favorite veggies like carrots, peas or avocados in the sandwich.
To assemble the sandwich butter all the slices of breads with thin layer of butter from one side. Spread spicy green chutney on 2 slices of the bread and potato filling on once slice of the bread.
Now layer your veggies on the bread slice that has potato filling and sprinkle some salt, pepper, chat masala/sandwich masala if you wish. Then take any one of your favorite tomato ketchup and spread it on the veggies to get that tangy taste.
Take cheese slices or grated cheese and add them on the 2 green chutney layered slices. You can add more if you like for that cheesy flavored sandwich).
Place the potato filled bread slice on top of one of the chutney spread slice and then cover it with another chutney spread slice. Spread some butter on top of the bread slice.
To grill the sandwiches, you can either use a sandwich maker or follow my method.
Heat butter in a frying pan. Place the sandwich in the pan. Make sure the heat is low. When one side is brown and crispy, flip over to cook the other side.
Cut the sandwiches in halves. Serve with some hot tea or coffee and enjoy.
