Bombay Sandwich



When I went to India, one of the most common sandwich that was available on every street corner was the Bombay Sandwich. I was really intrigued with the ingredients  potato and spices in a sandwich!!!! Being a foodie I had to try it and trust me I was not disappointed, it was amazing and immediately it became my firm favorite.

It was a wonderful combination of green coriander chutney layered in between toasted bread, thin slices of boiled potato with cucumber, tomato and slices of red onion. The sandwich was delicious and the ingredients did vary slightly from vendor to vendor. I have created my own version of the Bombay Sandwich using the Chunky proper Pickle from English Provender.

  7. Part of me is thinking that this just can't be good (potatoes and bread together?!) But the other part is taking in the description and looking at your photo and going 'yum, DO IT! '.
    I think the yum part wins.
