This crispy 2 in 1 vegetable and mashed potato grilled sandwich is the combination of two famous street food sandwiches. Bombay Vegetable Grilled Sandwich and Aloo Masala Grilled Sandwich (can also be referred as Mashed Potato Grilled Sandwich) which are very popular street food in Mumbai. Not even in Mumbai but you can find them in every ordinary street food restaurant menu.
When you are talking about street food in India, Sandwich and Samosa is most popular street food along with Chat.
Honestly speaking, I can never make competition with street food. They can be never replaced with homemade trials. Yeah, but I always do some innovative touch to that ordinary street food.
When I want light dinner, I always prefer the vegetable or potato sandwich recipes, and most of time grilled one because grilled sandwich makes it complete meal. While only vegetable sandwich is best option for daily breakfast.
This combo of two type of sandwich is actually the idea of my hubby. He is foodie person, and always inspire me to create new dishes from ordinary one. He some time have vegetable sandwich in breakfast but he likes grilled one, so he told me to combine Aloo Masala Grilled Sandwich and Vegetable Sandwich.
To make stuffing of mashed potatoes, you can use leftover mashed potatoes also. All you need is tadka (tempering). The punch of ginger and green chili make it perfect for delicious stuffing. and use it one layer of sandwich.
