Of the 12 slices, on a pan grill 4 slices and keep aside. Apply a little bit of coriander chutney onto one bread slice, put the onions, puri and tomatoes. Put the boiled potato, cucumber and beetroot (if using) and a slice of cheese.
I remember reading about this in the times of India and the recipe was quite simple, basically a grilled vegetable sandwich, topped with sweet and spicy chutney along with sev. Apply butter to all the bread slices and keep aside.
This one for instance became popular when introduced at Gupta Chaat Centre. Bread slices: 12 Onions: 2 (cut into roundels) Boiled potato: 1 (big, peeled and cut into roundels) Boiled beetroot: 1 (big, peeled and cut into roundels) (optional) Cucumber: 1 (cut into roundels) Tomatoes: 2 Butter: 5tbsp Cheese slices: 4 Baarik Sev: 1 vati Puris: Few Green coriander chutney: As required Sweet date chutney: As required Chaat masala, lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves: To garnish 1.
During my holiday to Bombay this time, I visited this Spanish dessert joint with friends and tried out their speciality called Churros for the first time. Add the flour, sugar, oil and salt to the water when it is still hot and using a spoon mix it well until it forms a soft dough. Place this dough into the piping bag or the murku press (which is what I used) and press out the dough into the hot oil.
The first look of it reminded me of chakli/ muruku. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I could not resist trying to make it at home.
Found a recipe for it on it was so very easy to make.
Ideally you use a piping bag with a star nozzle to pipe out the churros, but I did not have that, so used a murku press which works just as well, except for the thickness.

Prepare the sugar coating by mixing the sugar and cinnamon powder. Roll the fried churros in the sugar mixture until well coated. Thought will start off with something very simple and came up with this open sandwich with a cheesy mushroom topping.
