Forget the calories and relish this piping hot, topped with crunchy sev.

For the sandwich green chutney

  1. In a small mixer jar, take roughly chopped coriander.
  2. Add the freshly grated coconut to it. Preferably use freshly grated coconut. It gives a nice texture and thickeness to the chutney. Roadside vendors add bread slice to provide the thickness, you can refer to this recipe of Sandwich chutney.
  3. Now, add chopped spinach. This ingredient is a must to provide a bright green colour to the chutney.
  4. Add the roughly chopped garlic and roughly chopped green chillies. These ingredients provide the peppiness to the sandwich chutney.
  5. Finally, add salt to taste and a few drops of lemon juice. Lemon helps in retaining the colour and not turning it dull.
  6. Using 1/4 cup of water, blend till smooth. Keep aside.

  7. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for another minute.
  8. Divide the masala aloo stuffing into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

  12. Place the sandwich in the sandwich toaster and cook on a medium flame, till it turns brown and crisp from both the sides. You can also use sandwich griller or electric toaster. Alternatively, you can cook it quickly on a tava too but, obviously it won’t give that feel of roadside toast sandwich.
  13. Cut into 6 equal pieces.
  14. Place it on a plate and apply ½ tsp of butter evenly over it. Many roadside vendors even smear some garlic chutney, green chutney and ketchup over this.
