There are days when it drizzles all day long. The sky remains overcast most of the time, and it is chilly, but a good kind of chilly. On such days, there are dinner times when you want something hot and delicious, but all you really want to do is to grab a quick bite, cover yourself up with a warm comforter, and read a book in bed. This Farmhouse Grill Sandwich – a dish that I learnt by watching the ‘Mumbai Sandwich’- wallahs on the streets of Malleshwaram – would be the perfect dish to cook during such times. This, along with some hot soup would make for a great dreamy, rainy-day dinner.
How do I make it?
Ingredients (for 4 sandwiches):
8 slices of bread (I use brown bread)
4 tablespoons of salted butter, at room temperature
4 tablespoons of spicy, green chutney (See this post to learn how I make the green chutney)
1 medium-sized cucumber, chopped into thin rounds
1 medium-sized capsicum, cut into thin strips
1 medium-sized tomato, cut into thin rounds
1 medium-sized onion, peeled and cut into thin rounds
1 cube of Amul cheese, grated
About 4 tablespoons of tomato ketchup
4 pinches of chaat masala
- Spread the butter on one side of a slice of bread. Keep aside.
- Spread the spicy, green chutney on one side of a slice of bread. Keep aside.
- Put the bread with the green chutney on a plate, with the chutney side up.
- Arrange a couple of capsicum slices on the slice of bread.
- Next, arrange one piece of onion (or two, if you want) over the capsicum slices.
- Arrange two slices of tomato over the vegetables.
- Arrange a few slices of cucumber over the other vegetables.
- Sprinkle grated cheese over the vegetables.
- Close the sandwich with the slice of buttered bread.
- Prepare 4 sandwiches in this manner.
- Grill all the sandwiches in a sandwich maker, till they turn a bit crispy.
- Add 1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup on top of each grilled sandwich. Sprinkle a pinch of chaat masala on top of each sandwich.
Eat immediately! These sandwiches are meant to be eaten super hot!
Tell me all about your rainy-day lunches and dinners! I would love to know.
