As we all know that the most famous iconic sandwich joint in Mumbai called Haji Ali Juice Center is not only a sandwich hub but now has become a brand in itself. You will hardly find any Indian who does not know about this. Each sandwich they make is a masterpiece in itself. This recipe of mine is inspired by such well-known sandwich parlours.

To make my recipe different from all other sandwich recipes which you might find on google, I have introduced a simple and quick spicy red chutney which gives a slight tanginess and spice to balance the blandness of the vegetables. One more advantage in preparing this kind of sandwich is that kids will have a tough time trying to remove any vegetable from it and they will be unable to do so, as the vegetables are chopped finely. So the added advantage is that it becomes the most non-fussy and non-messy sandwich ever...everything tucked neatly between the two layers of bread...You can also substitute the chilli chutney with tomato sauce when serving the kids.

Vegetable Stuffing for Sandwiches

Good news for mums, that the stuffing can be prepared the night before and make the breakfast and lunch box preparation a cake walk. Not only that, this sandwich is a good way of including veggies in your diet in case if you are having a tough time on that.

And if you do not have a perfect sandwich grill at home, nothing to worry. You can get the same effect even on an ordinary pan, the only thing you will miss is seeing those lovely golden grill lines.
So let us start with the making of this Mumbai Street Style Sandwich.

  1. hi i'm Razy...I love your blog also have tried many of your recipes and loved them all...I would like to know the life span of red and green mint chutneys...For how many days can we refrigerate them...eargerly waiting for your reply

    1. Chutneys which I have mentioned can be stored in refrigerator only for 3-4 days. So it is better to prepare in small quantities. But sometimes i prepare these chutneys and freeze them if I have to use it after few days.
