Mumbai Masala Toast (Mumbai Potato Stuffed Sandwich with Coriander Chutney)

This sandwich is a classic example of how the Western influence on local cuisines got assimilated and got reborn in new avatars. The typical aaloo bhaji and the hari chutney get a makeover by being stuffed in between 2 slices of bread layered with tomatoes and onion slices. This toast is cut up into four and served with some sev and chaat masala with some ketchup on the side if you need any. This lip smacking sandwich is a Westernised vada pav that is a staple to many hostelers in Mumbai.
