Who doesn''t love sandwiches!! And the most basic sandwich is the vegetable sandwich..The flavour comes out from the perfect green chutney and the sandwich masala which gives it a chat pata taste.. And of course a smearing of butter on top and inside..Well I also did add cheese inside my sandwich and it was just the perfect homemade sandwich...
