  • ginger, 1cm piece, peeled
  • lemon juice

Mumbai sandwich

  • 2 slices of white bread
  • cheese, grated (any melting cheese will do)
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • butter
  • 1 garlic clove, cut in half

To serve

  • ketchup


Begin by making the chutney. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until fully combined. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside
To make the masala mix, simply add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir until evenly combined
Rub one side of each piece of bread with the cut side of the garlic. Butter both sides of bread and spread over a generous layer of chutney
Layer with the cucumber, then sprinkle over the masala mix. Repeat this process with a layer of tomato, then cheese, then onion
Top with the other slice of bread. Either toast the sandwich in a sandwich toaster, or fry in a heavy-based pan with something heavy on top (like another pan) until golden on each side. Serve with ketchup
