I am posting a vegetarian recipe after a long, long time. I really suck big time at vegetarian dishes. But i was so happy with the results after making this spicy, tangy, sweet, cheesy vegetable grilled sandwich, that i couldn’t stop myself from posting it. Its too good.
My sister, for whom the title of “sandwich queen” suits soo well had made this sandwich for me two months back. I was so very impressed with the taste that i had noted down the recipe from her the same day itself. But i was hesitant to make it at home because my husband is not a lover of vegetarian dishes much either. But then i finally made it yesterday, keeping my fingers crossed and yaaaay!! he loved it. :)
This sandwich includes a spicy green coriander chutney and a tangy tamarind chutney, along with chilli mayo, sliced cheese, nandos sauce and veggies like cucumber, tomato, lettuce, capsicum and spicy fried potatoes. A good amount of chutney brings a lot of flavors to the sandwich. Then you just have to grill it on a grill pan, or in a panini press and there you have it, a super delicious sandwich.
This can also be made for Iftar if you are tired of eating oily, fried food. Do try it and hope you all will like it. Enjoy!

Coriander leaves- a bunch
Few Mint leaves
1-2 green chillies
Garlic – 1 clove

1. Take a slice of bread and spread coriander chutney generously.
2. On top of that place all the veggies one by one.
3. Sprinkle the coriander leaves, add Nando’s sauce, mayo, cheese and on top a generous amount of tamarind chutney. If you like spread coriander chutney on the other slice bread also. Close the sandwich.
4. Take a grill pan or a normal pan and add butter. Grill the sandwich on both sides till golden and crispy and the cheese slightly melted.
✔️ You can add chaat masala too to the sandwich, if you like it to be more piquant.
✔️ Use any sort of bread you like.
✔️ i didn’t make tamarind chutney at home. I got it readymade from a restaurant. You can make it at home and store it for about 2 months or so.
