Sandwich Masala is a special spice mix that is sprinkled over Mumbai style sandwiches and gives them a very unique taste. Here is a step by step photo tutorial to make this masala at home. Make it and take your sandwiches to the next level.
Sandwich is the most common breakfast in our house.
I play with an array of stuffing and it ranges from the basic potato or panner to exotic avocado and Tuna.
Rajma, chicken, egg, mayo, green chutney or vegetable masala are some of my other favs too.
But when I am short of ideas and ingredients, Bombay Sandwich is always there as the saving grace.
This Bombay street food is a house favourite and when made using this Sandwich masala, it transports you to a popular Mumbai street.
I usually make a small jar of this masala and keep sprinkling it over my grilled vegetables too.
To make this masala powder, dry roast spices until they are slightly browned and a nice aroma starts to come.
Make sure to do this on medium heat and not high heat.
These spices are then ground with salt, dry mango powder and red chilli powder to make a fine powder.
You can also use black salt instead of regular salt.
You can store this masala in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a month and while making a sandwich, just sprinkle ¼ tsp masala over the filling before grilling the sandwich.
How to use this masala?
Sprinkle some of this masala over the filling of your sandwich or use it as a seasoning for your grilled veggies.
So next time when you make Mumbai style grilled sandwich, Cheese sandwich, Curd Sandwich or Potato sandwich, use this masala and then see the magic it creates.
