Is it weekend already? Or are we going on a picnic?
I guess maybe we, or just I am pretending today is the beginning of a warm weekend, and I am having a picnic at a nearby beach and enjoying these Bombay Veg Sandwiches. Yeah, you can call them picnic sandwiches because they are easy to pack and easier to eat.
So let me go with the last option because it feels more logical and gives me a reason to enjoy these Bombay vegetable sandwiches which are kinda healthy. 😀
The only thing which is stopping me from saying them the healthiest sandwiches is the white bread. You just switch the bread to wholegrain and they are one of the most delicious sandwiches in a healthy sandwich category.
They are best for the picnic, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have them for lunch or snack or brunch. I can have them for any of my meals because they are delicious and satisfying. Let me be honest, and tell you that sometimes I feel like I don’t eat raw veggies enough. But I love to eat them in raw form in these sandwiches. It’s seriously so good and it makes for some of the easiest weekday meals. I smeared the bread slices with butter because we need some kind of fat in our meals. Right? Then there is a layer of green chutney, lots of Veggies and a sprinkle of freshly ground sandwich masala. Done!
I have always loved a good sandwich. You can say that sandwiches are my childhood love. Most of the days my Mom made me sandwiches for my school lunches and I simply adored them. I still pack sandwiches for my lunch and I can tell I still love them. 🙂
Do you remember when I shared Bombay Masala Toast last week? As the name suggests, this Bombay Veg Sandwich recipe also hails from Mumbai streets but again like the masala toast, this is also sold in every city of India.
