‘Tandoori Aloo Sandwich’ Using The Newly Launched Borosil Jumbo Grill: A Product Review

Foodelicious- Tandoori Aloo Sandwich
Being a food blogger, I am not only trying to create and eat good food but also looking out to try various food related gadgets, appliances which I could use to make my cooking easier and better. Those could range from simple peelers to complicated electrical appliances. I use them all. Smile
Borosil, India,  is a well known name in the glassware industry, it being the pioneer. It is the market leader for laboratory glassware and microwavable kitchenware in India.
Recently, they have ventured into the manufacture of kitchen appliances. They sent me three of their kitchen appliances for product reviews.
To start off with, I am sharing the review of their latest launch into the Indian market, that’s the Borosil-Jumbo Grill. My regular readers know my penchant for the grill and the grill marks on the food I serve, especially the sandwiches and the seekh kebabs.
I do have a grill pan and a panini grill which I use quite regularly but I know I would be using the Borosil Jumbo Grill far more, now that I have used it and also fallen in love with it.
Foodelicious- Borosil Jumbo Grill Product Review
This Jumbo Grill looks quite similar to the commercial grills used by sandwich makers and also at coffee shops. It has a very smart looking ‘Polished Chrome Stainless Top cover’ and the handle is Thermally Insulated. The non skid feet provides it a strong hold on the base and there’s a latch to provide safe upright storage.
What impressed me most was the quality of Non-stick grill cooking plates and their size too. I did all the grilling sans oil and  did not face any sticking or burning on the grill plates.

The only drawback which I felt was that the power cord of the grill is quite short. I had to really struggle with that and finally  had to put it on a little height, to reach the power socket.

I made ‘Tandoori Aloo Sandwich’ using the Borosil Jumbo Grill and they turned out superb in terms of flavour and also the external texture, which was very crunchy. The kid has asked me to make them again as he simply loved them. The sandwich is quite filling and is perfect for school lunch box or even as an after play snack.

Tandoori Aloo Sandwich

तंदूरी आलू साँडविच

Preparation Time: 30mins | Marinating Time: 60mins | Cooking Time: 30mins | Makes: 4large sandwiches | Serves: 4| Difficulty Level: Moderate


For Tandoori Aloo

3 large potatoes peeled, boiled and cubed
3tsp tandoori masala
2tsp coriander powder
1-1/2tsp red chilli powder
1tsp turmeric powder
1tbsp mustard oil
2tbsp refined oil
4-5tbsp hung curds
1tsp black salt
salt to taste
tooth picks
oil for grilling

For making Tandoori Aloo Sandwich

8 slices of Sandwich Bread
2 large tomatoes, sliced
Mayonnaise, as required
Cheese slices, as required ( I used about 1-1/2 slices per sandwich)
1 large onion, sliced finely
chaat masala, as required
freshly crushed black pepper, as required
butter or oil (optional)


For Making Tandoori Potatoes


Peel and wash the potatoes and cut them into an inch sized cubes. Boil them with a little salt in an open pan till they are just about done. Strain all the water and let the potatoes cool.
In the hung curds, add all the in ingredients mentioned under tandoori aloo, except the potatoes.
Mix the potatoes with a gentle hand into the hung curds mixture. Avoid any pressure on the potatoes else they would break.
Let the potatoes marinade for an hour in the refrigerator.
Smoke the potatoes to get an authentic smoky tandoori effect. The process of smoking can be read here and here. I used only the charcoal, to get the desired smoky effect.
Use all the marinated potatoes and insert them on toothpicks. Put two cubes in one toothpick.
Heat a griddle on high and smear it lightly with oil. Grill the potatoes on stick.
Turn the potatoes so that they get cooked on all the sides.
Remove the grilled potatoes from the stick and cut into smaller pieces.

Assembling The Sandwich


Take two slices of the bread.
On one slice apply a generous layer of Mayonnaise. Layer the mayo with tomato slices followed by a layer of Tandoori Aloo.
Spread a few onion slices over the tandoori aloo and sprinkle some chaat masala.
Break the cheese slices into smaller pieces and spread over the onion. Sprinkle freshly crushed black pepper.
Cover the cheese by the second slice of the bread.
Switch on the griddle, the red light switches ‘On’. When the green light switches on, put the sandwich into the griddle. When the light turns red again on the griddle, remove the sandwich. Cut it into two equal halves. (At the time of grilling, one can apply oil or butter on the sandwich, but I made it sans butter or the oil)
Serve hot with some tomato ketchup and more of tandoori aloo on sticks.

Keep the spice level a tad high in the Potato Mix as they get filled inside the sandwich. The major flavour comes from the potatoes, so their flavour should shine.
