Mom used to prepare numerous types of sandwiches – boiled potato stuffing, cutlet stuffing, plain cheese, normal tomato-cucumber, boiled egg slices – in short whatever might taste good with bread would be qualified as sandwich. But when you are born and brought up in Mumbai you can’t miss the roadside sandwich thellas, I think the sandwich thellas is directly proportional to the number of colleges in the local.So we have about couple of sandwich walas at every other galli and each one have their own specialty. The Menu Card reads Paneer burji sandwich, kheema toast, chocolate stuffing to the recent update in Menu being Pizza Hut special sandwich.
My favorite used to be Bombay Toast - the stuffing used to vary from thella to thella but I used to love the layered and huge sandwich with cheese layers!
So I just thought of trying this sandwich with my own personal tadka. Watching the sandwich vala slice the veggie at record speed is inspirational, but I used V-slicer :P.
About the toaster I used the traditional one where in you just put the single sandwhich press in across and heat it over the flame.
The Foodie loves it and I can just eat them subah sham :D
Considering all is sliced and ready to go, preparation time took about 10 mins (including garnishing and first bite ;))
