Mumbai Masala Aloo Sandwich

Sharing is caring!

Mumbai Masala Aloo Cheese Sandwich is popular street food from the city of Mumbai. Special Sandwich Masala is sprinkled over these sandwiches that makes it more delicious.

When I decided to make a Sandwich platter, I decided to go with what Vaishali had shared a while ago for one of the BMs. I made the Sandwich Masala that seems to be the essential spice to be used. Overall, we loved sprinkling that masala on all the sandwiches I made that day.

This platter was the second one in a row and the kids surely had a field day. We had my aunt visiting us on the day I had made these sandwiches and she simply loved all the variety I made that day, she took notes to make it later and was really impressed with all the sandwiches that got dished out.

One of the things I have done differently from all these years was the fact that I started watching youtube videos on different food scenes. I was never a fan of watching videos, and before I never had time, and wasn’t keen on them.

However, when I had ample time on hand and was forced out of boredom, I ended up watching loads of it and the inspiration for many recipes came from the endless videos I watched. I can’t pinpoint one source, however, it helped me understand what goes into the street food sandwiches.

So for day 2 of Platters in the Thalis & Platters, I have Mumbai Masala Aloo Cheese Sandwich as part of the Sandwich Platter that was made. I have already shared Grilled Potato Cheese Sandwich apart from the Sandwich Masala that was made. With this Thalis & Platter theme, I have loads of dishes in drafts that I was forced to share some of the recipes ahead of time.

For Day 2 Platters for Elders, you can check what it is in C4AS.

Making the Filling

To make the filling, begin by washing and pressure cooking the potatoes until soft.
Alternatively, I microwave the potatoes if it is small in number. You simply have to slash over the top and microwave for 7 mins depending on how many you microwave.
Let the potatoes cool down a bit. If you soak it in water, it becomes cool faster.
Peel the outer skin and using a potato masher, mash it well. Keep it aside until making the filling.
Heat butter in a nonstick pan.
Add cumin seeds and asafoetida.
Once the cumin crackles, add ginger garlic paste
Saute well and add the finely chopped green chilies.
Now add the mashed potato along with salt and turmeric powder.
Combine well and remove.

Making the sandwich

Apply butter to bread slices.
One one side spread a generous layer of green chutney. Layer the sliced onions, tomatoes.
Sprinkle the sandwich masala over the sliced veggies.
On the other bread slice, spread the potato filling and place the cheese slice.
Sprinkle seasonings over the stuffing and press the bread together and toast it in a handheld toaster on the stovetop.
Alternatively, you can also toast on a griddle or a griller.
