Bombay sandwich / vegetable cheese sandwich- S/S pictures

              Though I have visited Mumbai a couple of times, I have never got to taste its street food which is so popular especially the pulao and pav bhaji. I recently heard about this sandwich from a friend who makes this quite regularly at her home. I took the recipe from her and made it one day. It was a filling meal with loads of vegetables. The cheese and the 'masala'  is considered to be the key ingredient in this as told by my friend.
    There is an interesting article on "making of a Bombay sandwich" here. 

Whole wheat bread- 10 slices(you can use white bread also)
Potatoes- 2 boiled and sliced into thin circles
Beetroot- 1 boiled (cooked till soft) and sliced into circles
Tomato-2 sliced into circles
Cucumber- 1 peeled and sliced into circles
Grated cheddar cheese- 2 cups
Chaat masala- 1tbsp
Tomato ketchup- 1/2 cup
Green chutney 
    Combine a few mint leaves, coriander leaves,3-4 green chillies, 2-3 garlic cloves along with some salt. Grind it in a chutney mixer along with a few drops of water till it becomes a smooth paste.
