On nights I don’t feel like cooking and I just want a quick and comforting meal, I love making sandwiches. Whether it’s a simple grilled cheese sandwich, or in this case a Veg Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

This meal is comforting and comes together in less than 30 minutes. You can even prep your ingredients a couple of days in advance.

What is a Veg Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

If you love the classic Bombay Sandwich, then you’ll love my Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It’s a slightly healthier option than the Bombay Sandwich.

This Veggie Grilled Sandwich is made exactly like the Bombay Sandwich but without potatoes. In this Vegetarian Grilled Cheese Sandwich, you’ll find cucumbers, tomatoes, green bell peppers, green chutney, butter, chat masala, and cheese.

Veg Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Ingredients

Bread – For the best results use soft white bread or soft white sourdough bread, such as Rudi’s Organic.

Butter – You will need unsalted butter – make sure the butter is at room temperature so it’s spreadable. You will need 1 tablespoon of butter to spread on each sandwich (both slices) and another 1 teaspoon of butter to grill the sandwich.

Chat Masala – You can use chat masala or sandwich masala for this recipe. I love MDH Chat Masala.

Green Chutney – I love making my green chutney at home – you can make Cilantro Chutney, Mint Chutney, or a combo of both.

Cheese – I love using sliced Pepper Jack Cheese, but you can use cheddar cheese, muenster cheese, gouda cheese, or even the classic Amul Cheese.

Veggies – Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Green Bell Peppers, Red Onions – all thinly sliced.
