  • 1 loaf of round Italian bread, I bought this from the bakery section of ShopRite

  • 5-6 american cheese slices (also got from the deli section at ShopRite, I get it thinly sliced)
  • 2 small cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 tomato sliced 
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded

Time needed: 25 minutes

Junglee Jumbo Sandwich

  1. In a bowl mix together, red cabbage, carrots, lettuce, and cilantro. Season with salt, pepper and a little bit of chaat masala.

    Set aside until ready to use.

  2. Cut the loaf in half, take out some of the break so the veggies have room.

    (you can save the bread to make breadcrumbs or croutons).

  3. Spread the butter on both sides, top it with the chutney, sprinkle with some chaat masala.

  4. On the bottom piece of the bread put cheese slices. Top with tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, more chaat masala, then top it with the shredded veggies.

  5. Close the bread. Heat a pan and add some butter to it. Then the sandwich, I like to use a cast iron pan on top of the sandwich to press it down (this is totally optional).

    You can use any heavy pan if you wish. Or a panini press works as well.

  6. Cook on one side until it’s nice and golden brown then flip to the other side. Cook until its golden brown on that side.

  7. Top with more chaat masala, cut and enjoy!!


  • You can look at the bakery section of your grocery store for the bread. 
  • If you can’t find the Italian loaf at your grocery store you can use any other bread that’s available to you. 
  • You can use a bag of pre shredded cabbage, lettuce, carrots to make things easier. 
  • If you can’t find amul butter, use kerry gold irish butter. It’s very similar in taste. 
  • Make sure to season your veggies really well with chaat masala, and even the top of the sandwich.
