Bread Sandwich | Bread Masala | Iyengar Bakery Style Sandwich

First time, I tasted  the "Iyengar bakery" sandwich in a small shop, hosur when we stayed there. One day, after shopping , we went there to buy some snacks, we noticed this sandwich in the tray, so we tried that and it tastes wonderful with ghee flavor.

From that day onwards , i wanted to try that sandwich in home.Last week , finally i tried this and it came out super tasty.So again i made it today for breakfast. It's very easy to make ,so quick fix for busy morning. 

In bakery, they serve only open sandwich, but i made both open & close sandwich.


Bread Slice - 7 nos
Carrot - 2(medium)
Capsicum - 1/2 of small size
Onion - 1 small
Tomato - 1 medium
Green chili - 1 small(optional)
Turmeric - pinch
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste(little more 1/4 tsp)
Coriander leaves - few
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Ghee - to toast(1/2 tsp approx)

It makes 3 closed & 1 open sandwich.

Look at the color in between


Cut the onions ,tomato,capsicum & green chili into small pieces. Grate the carrot and keep aside.

Heat the oil in the pan , add onion & green chili and saute it till translucent.

Then add the tomatoes into it along with spice (turmeric & chili powder) & salt . Saute it till tomatoes became mushy.

Now add carrot and saute it till the carrot is cooked & raw smell of carrot leaves. No need to add water, the water from carrot & tomatoes is enough to cook the carrot.

Then add capsicum, mix it well and let it in low flame for 2-3 mins.

Finally add the coriander leaves and switch off the flame. Take the carrot mixture in the spoon and apply it on one side of the bread and close it with another bread.

Heat the tava and grease it with ghee and place the bread on tava and cook it ,till the bottom became brown and the apply ghee slightly on top side and flip it and cook on other side too. Press the bread with the laddle, so that the bread stick to the masala well.

Remove it on the plate , once both side turns brown. Cut into diagonals and then serve.

You can make this as open sandwich too. Fill the mixture on one side of the bread and put it on greased tava and cook it till the bottom turns brown and remove it on plate and apply ghee slightly on the top . Cut into diagonals and serve.

Tasty Bread sandwich is ready .Slight sweetness from the carrot, tanginess from the tomatoes and all spices ,make this sandwich as very tasty. Trust  me, try it ,you will definitely like it .

You can serve it with ketchup and any juice of your choice. We have it with Nannari sarbath.


  • I used white bread here, you can use brown bread too. 
  • This sandwich doesnt need any accompaniment, if you want , you can have it with tomato ketchup.
  • When i tasted in bakery, i got the ghee flavor, so i used ghee to toast. But you can use butter too.
  • You can increase/decrease the capsicum amount as per your like.
  • Capsicum should be crunchy, so dont cook it for long time after capsicum is added.

Now it' time to dig in
