I’m all about mashed egg and avocado sandwiches. I’ve made so many variations of it, including this Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Salad Sandwich.

This particular recipe was inspired by the Viral Chopped Italian Sandwich first seen on TikTok. I just had to make a desi version of this sandwich using boiled eggs. Hope you guys enjoy this recipe and give it a try because it’s so

What is the Viral Chopped Sandwich?

The Viral Chopped Sandwich first gained popularity on TikTok. The original chopped sandwich is Italian and made with deli meats, cheese, lettuce, banana peppers, oil, and vinegar.

The idea behind this chopped sandwich is essentially all your ingredients are placed on a cutting board, chopped, and mixed. The result is mindblowing because you get every single ingredient in every bite – it’s so good.

Of course, I had to make a desi version of this sandwich and since I don’t do deli meats, I opted for eggs. This is a classic mashed avocado and egg combined with veggies and Indian spices. Combine all the ingredients on a chopping board and chop away. Enjoy with toasted bread.

Substitutions

  • Eggs – For those of you who don’t eat eggs, use firm tofu instead. Make sure to press the tofu so all the excess water has been removed.
  • Green Chilies – For less spice, you may substitute jalapenos in this recipe. Serrano peppers would work great, however they’re quite spicy as well. Also, you may omit red chili powder in this recipe.
