Mumbai Sandwich

My favourite sandwich in the world is a Mumbai sandwich. Indian Street Food makes me so happy and this sandwich is very popular in Mumbai or Bombay. I love it almost as much i love India. This sandwich like India is vibrant and a riot of colour and spices.

I haven't given measurements for most of the ingredients because the quantity of chutney is enough to make several sandwiches and you can adjust the ingredients in accordance with how many sandwiches you will be making.
