A very interesting Pav Sandwich, which is somewhere mid-way between a regular sandwich and vada pav, but as exciting as both together! Basically, it involves less work than vada pav because you do not need a vada but it is almost as tasty because it uses garlic chutney and assorted masalas including pav bhaji and garam masalas. The choice of vegetables layered between the pav is also such that you get a balanced texture, with a bit of crunchiness and a bit of juiciness too. Coriander, as always, peps up the whole arrangement, creating a fresh burst of flavours on your palate! Serve the Pav Sandwich immediately on preparation.


Pav 4 (slit horizontally)
Butter 6 Teaspoon
Garlic chutney 2 Teaspoon
Finely chopped coriander 4 Teaspoon (dhania)
Potato slices 8 (boiled and peeled)
Tomato slices 8
Onion slices 4
To be mixed into a masala
Pav bhaji masala 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Garam masala 1/2 Teaspoon
Dhania jeera powder
Salt To Taste



Divide the masala into 4 equal portions and keep aside. 

Heat 1½ tsp of butter on a non-stick tava (griddle), add ½ tsp of garlic chutney and one portion of the prepared masala and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.

Add the coriander and mix well. Place the pav over it and cook it on a medium flame for a minute or till the masala coats the pav evenly from both the sides. 

Place the pav on a serving plate, stuff it with 2 potato slices, 2 tomato slices and 1 onion slice and press it gently.

Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 3 more pav sandwiches. 


Serve immediately.
