Bombay Toast is a roadside delicacy that I really want to try every time we go to Mumbai.

Going to Mumbai is rare now.  I hope to sink my teeth into this sandwich at least this time but  I somehow never manage to eat it. The bread, chutney, fillers of potato, cucumber, tomato, capsicum and cheese make it a filling meal.

Street food Mumbai, Mumbai Sandwich

Bombay Toast

How can you?  there is vada pav, dabeli, Pani puri, sev batata puri and so many newer and tastier stuff that needs to be tried. Then there is the wedding or thread ceremony or engagement that we have come down to attend. My poor tummy rebels! My only option is to make my Bombay sandwich myself.

In my place, we are all happy when there is a toast for dinner. The only problem is I have to make them. Yes, I am a foodie who does not cook at night.

So let us get down to the making of Bombay Sandwich the main ingredients of which are of course sliced bread, green chutney, onion, boiled potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, capsicum, chaat masala, cheese, salt and pepper powder. Big list hmm well it’s something you can add or remove but this is what goes in it.

So let start shall we?

What you will need for 1 sandwich (these measures are just indicative like I already said add or reduce the number of fillers in the sandwich).

The pictures I realise need to be redone. Will do so till then please excuse.

The other toasts I have tried in the past are Simple Cheese Toast, Garlicky Cheese Toast, Simple Corn Toast, Delicious Grilled Sandwich, Toast with Feta Cheese Potato and Onion Rings.

    That’s a delicious looking Bombay sandwich.

    food is definitely a cultural thing as toasts aren’t so popular here and potato is not something we would think of putting in a sandwich. our minds first go to meat and cheese. So interesting to see all the varieties you guys come up with!
