How to make Goan Chutney Sandwich | Goan Chutney Sandwich is something that my hubby introduced me to soon after we got married. Since he had spent many years in Goa and being in a culinary school, this North Indian boy from Mumbai had outgrown his love regular green chutney sandwiches and developed a taste for these tangy, spicy and yet sweet chutney sandwiches.

The first time he asked me to make them, I was a bit skeptical as it would be sweet and tangy at the same time and he just gave a quick recipe without measurements, nothing! Just something that remembered from his first year at school. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it as I was fairly new to cooking as well and I needed some measurements, lol! I had vague memories of having tasted this kind of sandwich in the school days in someone’s lunch box but I just didn’t remember whether I had liked them back then or not! My hubby encouraged me to make a batch, savor it and thank him later! And thank him I did! It was very delicious and totally different from the regular chutney sandwiches that I’ve grown up on.

The typical North Indian chutney is different from the Goan counterpart. The best part was the sweet flavor accompanied by the tang in every bite. This chutney is a regular feature at my home along with the North India version too. To be honest, I like the Goan version for my sandwiches now and the North Indian version with my Samosas or chaat items, etc.

How to make Goan Chutney Sandwich | Goan Chutney Sandwich is so easy to make too, just a handful of ingredients and that’s it. We prefer the chutney a tad bit spicy too, but if you make them for kids then do reduce the spice index to your preference. We prefer cold chutney sandwiches. I avoid using butter for the sandwiches as it is not really needed, but you can butter the slices if you prefer. This chutney stays fresh in the refrigerator for a good one week’s time in a glass or porcelain container. The consistency of the chutney is important, do not make it too runny. Keep it nice and thick so that it spreads like a smooth layer on the bread.

I love that bright green color too, it is so vibrant! You can see the consistency of the chutney here, it is very thick and smooth at the same time. That is how it should be, so add very little water when you blend it. This chutney has so many uses apart from using them in sandwiches. We love this chutney with Dhokla too, or with some idlis as well. You can even pair this chutney with dosa or literally anything! But I would suggest that do not make a very large batch, keep making fresh batch every week for sandwiches, etc. That way you can enjoy them fresh. And yes, this chutney is absolutely vegan and gluten free.

Let us make a batch of Goan Green Chutney to make some Goan Chutney Sandwiches!

For the Chutney –

Wash all the ingredients well.

Chop/ grate the coconut roughly. Chop the onions too.

I have used tamarind paste, you can vinegar if you do not have tamarind.

Just blend everything together using 2-3 tbsps. of water. Store this chutney in a glass or porcelain jar. It stays fresh for a week.

To make the sandwiches-

Take a few slices of bread (you can use gluten free too). Apply this chutney on both the slices. Put them together. Slice them and serve them fresh or wrap the sandwiches with some cling film and refrigerate them for a few hours before serving them. You can even use toasted bread.

If you wish, apply butter (vegan or regular) before applying the chutney. I have not used any butter.
