Bombay Style Masala toast

How does the idea of Bombay Masala Toast with a cup of tea sounds to you in this rainy season??It is what I had this weekend and thought of sharing the recipe here.
I did a small variation in this humble toast,I made it into a double decker sandwich  so that I can include lots of crispy veggies and cheese in between the layers of green chutney topped bread slices.


3 slices of bread (white or brown, I have taken multi grain bread)
3 tablespoons of green chutney
1/2 medium sized tomato,thinly sliced
1/2 medium sized potato,boiled and thinly sliced
1/2 small capsicum, deseeded and thinly sliced
a few slices of cucumber
2 tablespoon grated Mozzarella Cheese
Chat masala to sprinkle
Butter,enough to spread

How to prepare Bombay style masala toast

  • Butter 3 slices of bread on one side 
  • Then apply 1 tablespoon of green chutney on each slice

  • On first slice of bread,arrange cucumber slices evenly and then arrange potato slices on over it. Generously sprinkle chat masala on top.
  • Place another slice on top with its buttered side up.

  • Arrange a layer on tomato slices and then finely sliced capsicum.Generously sprinkle chat masala on top.
  • Lastly sprinkle grated cheese over capsicum and place last slice of bread with buttered side pointing inside
  • Carefully place the sandwich on a hot grill and toast for 5 minutes till golden brown on both sides
  • Serve hot with green chutney and tomato ketchup

Quick Tips

  • Be sure to butter bread slices evenly otherwise the bread will get soggy due to green chutney
  • You can also use shredded cabbage,carrots,onion slices or any veggie of your choice in your sandwich.Imagination is the limit.
  • This sandwich can also be toasted on a griddle/tawa on gas top. Just make sure to press the sandwich well  before flipping it for the first time.
