Mumbai Toasty

The famous Mumbai sandwich. Super easy to make!


If you haven’t tried a Mumbai sandwich yet, it’s time you did!

This is my version of the famous Mumbai sandwich. You can make this in minutes. Also known as the Bombay sandwich, there is little wonder people love them so much.

These street food sandwiches are hugely popular not just in Mumbai but all over India. Nowadays, there is a good chance you’ll find delicious copies at western street food Indian restaurants too.

Working ahead…

This is a recipe you can really have a play with. Two of the main ingredients are masala potatoes and coriander chutney or coriander and mint chutney. I have many recipes for both on my site but have linked to those I use most often. 

Once you’ve made these key ingredients, you can assemble the recipe very quickly and easily.

This is a quick sandwich! So try those recipe. Use them in other things too. Have them on hand for when you need them. With a little forward planning, you could have many dishes out of just a couple recipe. 

Make this recipe your own…

Feel free to use my recipe exactly as it is or have a play with it. Add more chillies for example or completely leave them out. 

By tasting as you go, you can make the perfect mumbai sandwich for you.
