My husband lived in Mumbai for many years and has experienced lot of Mumbai street foods.He has some fond memories of his favorite street food vendors where he would head to cater to his ‘chatpata’ or ‘teekha’ cravings.He always keeps telling me that “Bhelpuri and vada pao may rule the world of Mumbai street food; but I think the Mumbai Sandwich manages to hold its own quite well,believe me its a treat to our taste buds , it has tremendous crowd-pleasing potential… “
Though , i’ve not tasted these “Vegetable Club sandwiches” in Mumbai ,but they are a very popular street food even in Bangalore and they taste just Yum !!!These sandwiches bursts with flavors and veggies. Its just not a treat to the taste buds but is as colorful as rainbow.What adds spice to the veg sandwichis the mint coriander chutney and chaat masala.I love this any day.
For Sunday mornings breakfasts,I usually do something different yet a quick fix .Sandwiches are always fulfilling,healthy,tempting and easy to make.So this time it was Vegetable club sandwich .They are so easy to make..The only thing you need to prepare is the versatile green chutney which matches perfectly with a vegetable sandwich .Once the green chutney is ready, just a few assembling steps to go and then you have a healthy,delicious,rich sandwich to hit your taste buds in the morning.Even my daughter loves arranging the veggeis and makes a sandwich for herself .That explains how easy to make they are …
