Grilled Chutney Sandwiches

Sandwiches make a perfect meal for any time of the day. Even kids enjoy them as much as grown-ups. Sandwiches are great for picnics, as they are easy to carry.  Variety of sandwiches can be made using different kinds of bread. My Sister-in-law opened the world of sandwiches to me, she makes variety of delicious sandwiches. 

Let's start with Grilled Chutney Sandwich. In India chutney sandwiches are most popular. By adding potato and veggie filling and then grilling them makes it a little different. Recipe calls for sandwich bread but if you don't have one you can certainly use regular bread. With regular bread you will have to work faster as chutney makes the bread soggy too fast.


12 Sandwich Bread slices (makes 6 Sandwiches)
1/2 Cucumber thinely sliced
1/4 Onion thinely sliced
1 large or 2 medium Potatoes boiled and mashed
1/2 cup Green Bell Pepper chopped finely
1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper chopped finely
1/3 cup frozen Corn
few drops of oil
Ketchup as required.
1 tsp chaat masala
Salt as per taste
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese(optional)
Butter for grilling

For Chutney

1/2 Cup packed Mint leaves washed
1 Cup Coriander washed
1 Green chili
1 1/2 tsp Lime juice
Salt as per taste


Mix all ingredients for chutney and blend it in a blender. Use little water if needed to get your blender going. Keep aside.

Boil potatoes and mash them. Heat few drops of oil and then add bell peppers and corn, fry for few minutes until they are little soften but not too much, around 3-4 minutes. Let them cool a bit, then add to mashed potatoes. Also add chaat masala and salt, mix everything together. This is your filling.

To assemble take two slices of bread. Spread chutney on one slice and ketchup on other. Spread 1 spoonful of mixture on chutney side and arrange cucumber and onion slices, sprinkle some cheese and top it with other slice, ketchup side down.  Repeat the same procedure with remaining bread slices.

Apply some butter on both sides and grill them on griddle or frying pan. Cut into half and enjoy your Sandwiches!!

Quick Tips

If chutney is too spicy for kids, you can apply ketchup on both sides and for flavor and color sprinkle some chopped coriander and mint on one of the slice.
