  3. Grind all the ingredients for the green chutney until smooth. Add little water if required but don't add too much water. As the chutney should have a thicker consistency not too thin else your bread would get soggy soon.
  4. Slice all the veggies and keep handy.
  5. Take a chopping board and chop the thick egdes of the bread gently.
  6. Now apply butter to all the bread.
  7. Apply green chutney to one side of the bread or you could apply both the sides. One side is better if packing for lunch boxes the bread won't get soggy.
  8. Spread some cucumber slices around 8-10 on the bread.
  9. Now add 1-2 onion slices. Sprinkle some sandwich masala over them.
  10. Place 3-4 potato slices and sprinkle the sandwich masala again.
  11. Keep 1-2 beetroot slices over it.
  12. Top with 4-5 tomatoes. Again sprinkle some sandwich masala and chat masala.
  13. Cover with another buttered slice of bread. Repeat the same with the rest of bread. Slice into squares or triangles. Apply some butter and chutney over the sandwich. Your Mumbai veg sandwich is ready.
  14. Serve veg sandwich immediately with chutney and some sauce. Store the left over green chutney back into the fridge for further use.
Notes
