Farmhouse Grilled Sandwich

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 โ€˜Mumbai Sandwichโ€™- 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


  1. Spread the butter on one side of a slice of bread. Keep aside.
  2. Spread the spicy, green chutney on one side of a slice of bread. Keep aside.
  3. Put the bread with the green chutney on a plate, with the chutney side up.
  4. Arrange a couple of capsicum slices on the slice of bread.
  5. Next, arrange one piece of onion (or two, if you want) over the capsicum slices.
  6. Arrange two slices of tomato over the vegetables.
  7. Arrange a few slices of cucumber over the other vegetables.
  8. Sprinkle grated cheese over the vegetables.
  9. Close the sandwich with the slice of buttered bread.
  10. Prepare 4 sandwiches in this manner.
  11. Grill all the sandwiches in a sandwich maker, till they turn a bit crispy.
  12. 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.

      I make a different sort of sandwich too that uses beetroot – not in this one, though. I did a post on that a while back. Will see if I can dig that up. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Please do try this out some time. Would love to know how it turned out.
