Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich is a simple, but tasty and healthy street food of Mumbai that is packed with goodness of vegetables. It is a favorite among the people on the go. Just grab a sandwich packet and eat while travelling, shopping, or just whenever you feel like having the delectably tasty Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich.
For years the ‘sandwich wallas’ (the sandwich roadside vendors) of Mumbai are dishing this out on the streets and people make a beeline for this even today.
I had some high fibre brown bread and also some white bread, so decided to make the old style Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich for breakfast.
Vegetables that are filled inside the sandwich are sliced cucumber, sliced boiled potatoes, tomatoes, sliced onions, carrots.
The fresh green chutney made from coriander and mint gives the sandwich its unique taste and not to miss out the special sandwich masala that the street vendors use to further enhance the taste of the Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich.
The picture above shows all that goes into the making of a Mumbai Vegetable Sandwich – bread slices, vegetables, butter, green chutney, sandwich masala, cheese, tomato sauce (optional) may be either spread inside the sandwich or served separately.
I have read that the sandwiches near Mahalakshmi Temple is supposed to be the most popular. I last tasted the famous Mumbai ki sandwich at the Hindu Gymkhana with Raju, Sameer, and Sashank.
