Green Chutney for the Vegetable Sandwich

  1. For the green chutney, take a small mixer jar and add the coriander to it. Smaller jar is always better to use as it is easier to blend in it. Make sure the coriander is nice and fresh and also green in colour.
  2. Add the spinach. 
  3. Add the green chillies. If you want it spicier use the dark green variety and use the light green variety if you wish to have a less spicy chutney. 
  4. Add the bread slices. Old slices can be used, this makes the chutney more thicker and also saves cost.
  5. Add the lemon juice. This is very important as it helps the chutney maintain its bright green colour. Generally chutney always gets dark green or blackish in colour over time so adding lemon juice will prevent that from happening.   
  6. Add salt and 2 tbsp of water. You may add little more water if needed but the chutney should not be thin it should be nice and thick. 
  7. Blend in a mixer till smooth. 

Sandwich Masala for Vegetable Sandwich

  1. For the Sandwich Masala, heat a small broad non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds.
  2. Add the cloves and cinnamon. 
  3. Add the black peppercorns, fennel seeds and star anise. Star anise can be avoided if you do not have it at home. 
  4. Dry roast on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes. Keep stirring it using a wooden spoon. 
  5. Transfer it to a plate and keep aside to cool.
  6. Once cooled, transfer to a small mixer jar as the quantity is not too big. 
  7. Blend it to a smooth powder. In between do mix it with a spoon so that the whole spices are blended well. 
  8. Add the black salt. This gives a unique taste. 
  9. Add the rock salt.This is used in place of the regular salt. It is a healthier option as compared to the regular salt. 
  10. Add the dried mango powder. This gives a nice khatta or sour taste. 
  11. Now blend it till smooth. Your Sandwich Masala is ready. 
  12. Use as required. As we are using very little in this Vegetable Sandwich recipe we can store this in an air-tight container at room temperature in a cool, dark place for later use. This will stay good for atleast 2 months. 

How to Proceed for the Vegetable Sandwich

  1. Place 2 bread slices on a clean, dry surface. 
  2. Trim off the edges of each bread slice using a sharp bread knife and apply 1/2 tsp of soft butter on each bread slice. Apply this using a butter knife. 
  3. Spread ½ tsp of green chutney on each buttered bread slice. Use a butter knife for even spreading.
  4. Arrange 5 cucumber slices on one buttered-chutney slice. We have added 9 as our bread slice was bigger. Always taste the cucumber before using it as at times it is little bitter in taste which will make the sandwich taste really bad. 
  5. Arrange 4 potato slices evenly over the cucumber slices. Potatoes should be boiled in a pressure cooker, peeled and then cooled slightly and then cut into round slices using a sharp knife. 
  6.  Sprinkle little sandwich masala evenly over it. This removes the blandness from the vegetables. 
  7. Arrange 4 tomato slices. Use tomatoes that are red in colour and firm, cut them using a sharp knife. 
  8. Top it with 3 beetroot slices. It can be avoided if you wish to. Beetroot should be boiled well in a pressure cooker, cooled and then cut into round slices using a sharp knife. 
  9. Then top it with 2 onion slices.This gives a very nice taste but if you do not like it then you can avoid it. 
  10. Sprinkle some sandwich masala evenly over it.
  11. Cover it with another slice of bread, with the buttered-chutney side facing downwards.
  12. Press the Vegetable Sandwich lightly with your hands. 
  13. Cut into 6 equal pieces using a sharp bread knife. Make sure you cut this lightly or else the filling will come out of the Vegetable Sandwich
  14. Apply 1/2 tsp of butter evenly over the Vegetable Sandwich. This gives a very nice flavour and makes the sandwich nice and buttery. 
  15. Repeat steps 1 to 14 to make 3 more Vegetable Sandwiches.
  16. Serve this Vegetable Sandwich immediately with tomato ketchup and green chutney.

Who doesn''t love sandwiches!! And the most basic sandwich is the vegetable sandwich..The flavour comes out from the perfect green chutney and the sandwich masala which gives it a chat pata taste.. And of course a smearing of butter on top and inside..Well I also did add cheese inside my sandwich and it was just the perfect homemade sandwich...
