This is a very popular street food in Bombay! It is amazing how fast the guys make these sandwiches and that too effortlessly.
Trust me , this is a very easy and filling sandwich to make. Needs a little preparation earlier, but that is all. The fillings and chutney can be played around as per your taste. I do not have a grill or panini press and made these sandwiches on a regular tawa. If you like fancy grill marks, use the grill pan. Grill marks or not you will love the taste of it.
The green chutney freezes very well if you make big batch. Just thaw the frozen chutney and use it any time.
