Using fresh seasonal vegetables, make this classic Indian-inspired Veggie Patty Subway Sandwich! Packed with the goodness of veggies, flax seeds and much more!
To a regular person, food is a necessity to survive. For me, it is the essence of my soul!!! Food and books are the only two things that nourish my soul like no other experience / thing ever could!
And because I’m madly in love with all the food that I’ve cooked / eaten / yet to cook / yet to eat, I’ve made a list of foods I want to eat before I die. For a food nerd such as myself, that means almost every single dish ever invented by mankind.
But we’ll get to that list later. For now, I’m happily munching on this Indianized version of a Subway Sandwich (which – FYI – has been on my to-cook list for about 2 years now). Pretty much following McDonald’s footsteps, Subway came to India with a bunch of Indian-inspired sandwiches. And their customization has paid off big time. Subway today sells some of the best sandwiches in India of which this Veggie Patty Sub is a favorite among vegetarians.

- 2 teaspoons Garam Masala
- 1 teaspoon Aamchur powder (Dry Mango Powder)

- Pickles (Gherkins, Jalapeno, Olives etc.) - optional
- Sauces & Dressings of your choice (Ketchup, Hot Chilli Sauce, Sweet Onion Sauce, Mustard, Mayo etc.)
- Butter / Oil
- Cheese (optional)
- You can even use leftover veggies from yesterday. Cooked or raw veggies are okay
- If you don't have or want to make in a french bread, make it on a burger bun
- You can skip using Indian spices and use your own favorite spice mix
- Flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds etc. add a lot of nutritional value to the Sub. You can skip or substitute any seeds you like.
- Add all the veggies, garlic, potato, chilli, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, a bit of oats to a food processor and give a blitz. You just need to break up the veggies enough to blend into the patty mixture. Remove on a bowl.
- Add the sesame seeds, bread crumbs, oats, cornstarch, salt, sugar, pepper powder, chilli powder, garam masala, dry mango powder and mix everything together. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
- Depending on the size of your bread / bun, roll out equal portions of the mixture and flatten them out slightly. If you're making on a burger bun, make round patty and if on a 6 inch french bread, roll into a log and flatten slightly.
- Heat 1 teaspoon oil per patty on a pan (preferably non stick). Add the patties and let them cook on medium heat on each side for 3-4 minutes or until the patties are fully cooked and crispy.
- Horizontally slice the bun or bread into to halves
- Lightly toast both halves of the bread / bun if you want.
- On the lower half, add all the veggies, pickles etc, as much as you want
- Add your favorite sauces. Place the patty on top. Close with the other half of the sandwich and serve.
- To pack, wrap tightly in a paper bag or aluminum foil. Try to avid cheese and sauces or they may get soggy in the parcel.
