Cream Cheese Bombay Sandwich
An Indo-American vegetarian sandwich of generous amounts of garlicky cilantro-mint chutney and thinly sliced veggies and homemade sandwich masala along with delicious vegan cream cheese
is a hassle-free snack all year round.

Almost like the American peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the green chutney sandwich in India is the perfect tea-time snack. It’s an unassuming finger sandwich that’s ready in minutes and best served with a steaming cup of chai.

The sandwich is used on road trips, as a breakfast or school lunch box, as a quick snack before your commute home, and not a single Indian I have met hasn’t had or had some form of green chutney sandwich.

Almost every home makes green chutney differently and has it as a staple condiment. It is essentially similar to a pesto made of cilantro and mint.

It’s the perfect type of fast and healthy food, not only healthy, but also no hassle, no more work, and full satisfaction. I made this version by adding fresh green spinach and veggies, and I’m in love!

This Indian-style club sandwich is among the most popular street foods of India. I have been in love with it for a long time. I had it pretty much every day during my college years!

The Sandwich Masala used in this Bombay street food transports you to a popular Mumbai street. I was there in Mumbai for 6 years and this sandwich is one of my most favorite street food.

About Cream Cheese Bombay Sandwich | Vegan Grilled Sandwich

Almost everyone loves this simple sandwich. It’s full of crunchy cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, and mild spices that is sandwich masala made at home with ingredients available in our pantry.

A special spice mix, known as Sandwich Masala, is used to spice up Mumbai-style sandwiches, giving them a unique tangy taste. A small jar of this masala is what I usually keep in my pantry so I can sprinkle it on my veggies whenever I grill them.

A popular Indian street food, the club sandwich is made using Indian ingredients and it has been one of my favorites since I was in college. I had it almost every day during my college years!

Important Suggestion To Keep In Mind

  • As per your preference, you can add other vegetables like avocado, spinach, and boiled potatoes.
  • Veggies can be added or omitted according to your preferences.
  • This recipe is best when made with white bread, although any soft bread will work, white bread is the most preferred.
  • Stack the veggies neatly by thinly slicing them.
  • Make sure your tomatoes are ripe and firm.
  • If you like, sprinkle a pinch of salt and chaat masala on top for enhanced flavors.
  • The bread’s sides can be cut into pieces if they are stiff, or you can simply discard them.
  • Pack cucumbers and tomatoes separately when packing for a picnic to avoid getting the sandwiches too soggy. Adding them to your food before you eat is best.
  • If you choose to toast or grill the sandwich, you can do so.
  • In addition to the green chutney, pesto sauce or hummus can be substituted, and bell pepper slices can also be added to the veggies.
  • To boost the flavors of a sandwich without sandwich masala, sprinkle some black salt on it.
  • It’s also crucial to prepare and serve them freshly otherwise they may become soggy.

Serving Suggestions

You can have this sandwich as it is. No side dish is required as such but if you want you can serve some chips as per your choice with them.

Storage Suggestions

For a rather crispy sandwich, layer the cucumber and tomato slices separately so they do not get soggy when you eat them. This way you can keep the sandwich stored for a day.

But it’s always better to consume it right away and fresh to get all the nutrients from the veggies.
