Naan Sandwich

This is an old, old favourite. As a little girl, this was the one treat which I always demanded. This sandwich uses naan, a kind of bread made with refined flour (yikes!) with a peculiar, yummy, unique flavour. I remember tagging along with my dad to Bohri Mohalla in Mumbai and sitting down in a dingy, ramshackle little stall and feeling on top of the world. Because, I had a plateful of delicious naan sandwich to gorge on. There are many variations of this dish. You can make it with red meat, chicken and there is even a more or less vegetarian version, which is what I am sharing with you today. I have used potatoes and eggs for this naan sandwich. Now, if you cannot get hold of a naan, you can use the bun used for a burger. But I am warning you, it will certainly not taste the same! Now, for the recipe.


3 boiled potatoes

1 chopped onion

2 eggs, beaten

2 green chillies, chopped

Handful of mint leaves

Handful of coriander

½ teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon garam masala powder

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder

Salt as per taste


Mash the potatoes, keep them a bit chunky and uneven. In a pan, heat oil. Once hot, add the green chillies. Give it a quick stir and add the chopped onions. Add the boiled potatoes and all the seasoning once the onions turn pink. Cover and cook on slow flame, till the raw smell of spices disappears, about 10-12 minutes. Now add the beaten eggs, mix and cook for another 5 minutes. Finish with chopped coriander and mint leaves. Cut your naan into halves. In a skillet, heat a little olive oil and lightly roast your naans. Remove from heat and add the stuffing to your naans. Use the skillet, to lightly toast your naan sandwiches for about two minutes and your extremely yummy sandwiches are ready to be devoured!
