Spicy onion tomato sandwich

These delightfully crisp, juicy, and spicy onion and tomato sandwiches are easy to make and come together in just 10 minutes.

For best results, toast them on an iron tawa (griddle). You can replace the desi ghee (clarified butter) with salted butter, but sandwiches prepared with desi ghee will be crispier.

2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bread slices, preferably white bread
  • 1 medium onion, chopped small
  • 1 large tomato, chopped small
  • 1 tbsp shimla mirch (bell peppers), chopped small
  • 1 green chilli, chopped fine
  • 2 cheese slices
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp deghi mirch (red chilli powder)
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp hara dhania (cilantro), chopped fine
  • desi ghee (clarified butter), as needed

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients except the desi ghee, cheese slices, and bread slices. Mix until well combined.
  2. Take two bread slices and spread the stuffing evenly on each. Then place a cheese slice on top of the stuffing. Place the remaining two (plain) bread slices over the slices with the stuffing.
  3. Grease a heated iron tawa (griddle) with a little desi ghee. Place one sandwich on the tawa. Grease the top side of the sandwich with a little desi ghee. Keep the heat on low-medium and toast the bread until crisp and golden on both sides. Keep pressing the sandwich with a flat ladle so that the veggies inside are able to cook. Transfer the toasted sandwich to a plate and toast the other sandwich in the same way.
  4. Serve hot with green chutney or tomato sauce.

Grill it, James. In the current situation, onion and tomato are much sought after.

Rajan Singh Jolly (author) from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 09, 2020:

That's great, Flourish! Thank you.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on May 08, 2020:

This sounds delicious. It made me remember the toasted tomato and cheese sandwiches that I had as a child. I haven't eaten one for a long time. I love the thought of all the extras that you added to the sandwich.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 08, 2020:

Your recipe sounds so much more flavorful than just a plain grilled cheese sandwich. Thanks!

Mitara N from South Africa on May 08, 2020:

Looks so delicious and welcoming. I love the thought of quick and easy.

Thank you for sharing Rajan

My mouth is watering. This sounds like a tangy delight.

James C Moore from The Great Midwest on May 08, 2020:

Wonderful! A spicier version of my "poor man's sandwich." The poor man is onion and tomato between slices of bread lathered with mustard. Ummn! I've even written song lyrics about the poor man. So how do I prepare your sandwich without a griddle?

FlourishAnyway from USA on May 08, 2020:

This is a savory alternative to a plain grilled cheese. My daughter would like this, I am sure!
