Butter bean vegetable toast sandwich

This dish is classic street food from Mumbai. I have only made it more healthy. I am also using gas toaster to give it the authentic street look. If you do not have gas toaster, you can use electric toaster. I love cooking my sandwich in gas toaster as it makes it nice and crispy.

Serves 4
Butter bean boiled: 350gms
Boiled potato: 1 medium or large
Onion: 1 medium
Carrot: 1 medium
French beans: handful
Ginger: 1 inch
Green chili: 3-4 (take less if you wish)
Sweet corn: handful
Green peas: handful
Salt to taste
Lime juice: 2-3 table spoon
Garam masala: 1/2 tea spoon (optional)
Turmeric: 1/2 tea spoon
Sugar: 1/2 tea spoon
Wheat breads
Olive oil
Hard cheese of your choice
Bread crumbs: as per the need
Chat masala for garnish (optional)
Tomato: 1 medium

If you have boiled beans and potato, this will take minutes to cook.

I have used tinned butter bean for this recipe. You can soak hard butter beans for 4-6 hours and boil in water until soft.

Peel onions, ginger, carrot and fine chop it. Wash and cut ends of french beans and fine chop it.

Clean and wash coriander and fine chop it.

Boil, peel potato and mesh it.

In a food processor add onions, carrot, french beans, sweet corn, green peas, sugar, salt to taste, ginger and green chillies. Churn it until smooth.

Take it out in a mixing bowl. Add it to meshed potatoes. Add turmeric, lime juice, garam masala and give it a good mix.
Take butter beans,
salt to taste, coriander and pepper in food processor,
churn it until coarse paste and mix it with other mixture. If you think mixture is loose add little bit of bread crumbs. Taste the mixture and adjust the spices accordingly.

I am not using any butter on bread slices to make it healthy and low fat. If you want add lots of butter to give it additional flavour.

Take good handful quantity of filler and apply a nice thick layer on top of a bread slice.
Top it up with tomato and cheese slices. Sprinkle little chat masala.
Note: You can add any of cucumber, onion, boiled beet root, capsicum slices.

Add a bread slice on top.
Apply olive oil as grease on both sides of gas toaster.
Place the sandwich in toaster and close the toaster.
Cook on medium heat for 1 minute each side.
Open up to check if sandwich is toasted. Take it out on a plate and cut in the middle.
Serve hot with coriander chutney or tomato sauce.
