  • First, spread butter (if using) and then green chutney over the bread slices. Sprinkle some lemon juice over the chutney.
  • Then add a spoonful of potato masala and spread it evenly on the bread.
  • Then place cucumber slices over it in a layer.
  • Followed by tomato slices.
  • Then add the beetroot slices. Sprinkle sandwich masala or chaat masala.
  • Next, add the onion slices.
  • Add grated cheese on top if you want and close the sandwich with the other bread slice that's smeared with chutney as well.
  • Place them in a Panini maker or a sandwich maker and grill it. Once you get the grill marks on the bread, take it out.
  • Cut into slices and serve with some chutney and ketchup on the side.


You can do all the prep work in advance or the night before - making the aloo masala, boiling the beets, and making the chutney. Making of the aloo masala can be skipped and this sandwich can be made using just the sliced veggies.
If doing it this way, boil and peel potatoes, slice them, and add them to the sandwich. That will make it a no-cook and oil-free recipe (if you skip the butter too). While white bread tastes best here, feel free to use any multigrain or whole wheat bread. 
Instead of green chutney, you can also use pesto sauce or hummus.  In veggies, you can also add sliced bell peppers for more flavor. In fact, you can add or skip any veggies you want. Just ensure they are fresh and crunchy.
Use chaat masala if Sandwich masala is not available. Both can be found in Amazon or at any Indian grocery store. In case you don't have both, use cumin powder and salt. Use regular butter or any dairy-free butter. Feel free to skip adding cheese or sue vegan or regular grated cheddar cheese. 
You can also enjoy this sandwich without grilling it. Even the cold sandwich tastes great. Also, it's important to make these sandwiches fresh and serve immediately, else they will become soggy. No one likes a soggy sandwich!
