Bombay Club Sandwich (Grilled Sandwich)

Bombay Club sandwich is basically a grilled sandwich, served with fresh veggies. There was a fast food place called Amar Fast Food, near my college. I used to go there with my friends. Most of my friends liked their Pav Bhaji, but I liked their club sandwich the most. I still remember their presentation. The grilled sandwich would be cut into pieces and decorated in a shape of a boat and placed on a bed of shredded cabbage. The sandwich would then be decorated with two paper umbrellas placed on each ends.

In Bombay, a special type of bread is used to make club sandwich. This bread is big in size and triangular in shape. Unlike traditional sandwiches with two bread slices, the club sandwich is made with three bread slices. Since we don't the special club sandwich bread here, I use normal sandwich breads. Here is the recipe for the Bombay Club Sandwich.

3 bread slices (I use whole wheat)
Green Chutney
Chaat Masala
1 Potato, Boiled and Sliced
Cucumber, Thinly Sliced
Tomatoes, Thinly Sliced
Onion, Thinly Sliced,
Beet Root, Boiled and Sliced
Apply butter and green chutney respectively on a side of a bread slice. Then place 3-4 potato slices on the bread. Sprinkle a little chaat masala. Now arrange tomato and beet root slices, again sprinkle a little chaat masala. Apply butter and green chutney on both sides of the second bread slice and place on top of the tomato and beet root slices,. Now again place some potatoes on the second slice, and then arrange the onion and cucumber slices on top. Sprinkle chaat masala. Apply butter and chutney on one side of the third bread slice and place it(the chutney side down)on top of the cucumber slices.
Transfer to an electric grill and grill until the outside breads slices are brown and crunchy. Remove from the grill, cut into pieces and serve hot.
This sandwich can be with Green Chutney, Tomato Ketchup or Tomato Chili Sauce.
