The best thing about living in Bangalore apart from its greenery is that it has so many good eat outs catering to all classes of people,the rich, the middle class,and the poor.You can seen all kinds of fancy restaurants to simple food joints to mobile food vendors.I’ve always loved this kind of place and I hope Bangalore remains this way.There is one such fast food,a landmark that is hard to miss in Jayanagar, "Cool Joint" which serves grilled sandwiches,fresh fruit juices and mouth watering desserts at a nominal prices.Those familiar with Bangalore will know exactly what I’m talking about .The yummy huge Veg.Grilled Sandwiches…ohhh makes me drool! 
I tried to recreate those grill sandwiches in my kitchen and voila! i was successful .Now this is something i often make at home.You can play around the filling and make your own special sandwich.Making sandwich does not require much cooking expertise and these are the ones any newbies can make and even the experts love such recipes when they are in hurry.They are so simple and yet so irresistibly good!I am crazy about sandwiches and would gladly have it for any meal.

Enjoyy the veg grilled sandwich with a hot cup of tea..


Note :
  1. You can replace white bread with brown bread to make it more healthy.
  2. Except the butter,this sandwich is healthy. Of course,you can omit butter.
  3. No specific veggie for this, you can skip any one or two, alter any 1 or 2 , still it tastes great!
  4. You can place cheese slices /gratings between the sandwiches to make a cheesy veggie grill sandwich Rest of the steps remains same.
  5. Instead of Chaat masala you can use sandwich masala . I didn't have them handy .You'l get them ready at shops.
  6. Dont over preheat the tawa/toaster grill / grill pan.
