It would be quite fair to call this a global favourite, because the Vegetable Club Sandwich is one snack you can rely on to satiate your hunger anywhere in the world.

Found on most restaurant menus, this satiating multi-decker sandwich may be found in many variants depending on the region and the chef’s imagination!

This recipe is an interesting and slightly Indianised version in which one of the layers comprises a flavourful tomato omelet, perked up with green chillies and spice powders. Creamy and tangy coleslaw forms another layer, while the rest of the sandwich is comprised of crunchy and juicy veggies and greens.

A dash of peppy chutneys like green chutney and garlic chutney heightens the desi feel of this Vegetable Club Sandwich.

Feel free to experiment a bit with this sandwich, adding or removing ingredients as per your taste – although we strongly recommend giving this full-fledged version a try, because you are sure to be bowled over by it!

Accompany this sandwich with a bowl of hot soup or a cool beverage to make an excellent and satiating meal.

Recipe Notes for Veg Club Sandwich

  1. Instead of white bread loaf,  you can also make the Veg Club Sandwich using Whole Wheat Bread or Multigrain Bread.
  2. In the batter for the Tomato Omelette you can use green chilli paste instead of chopped green chillies and you can also add some carom seeds (ajwain) it adds an aromatic pungent flavour and is also good for health.
