Prepare sandwich ingredients: Slice tofu into ¼” thickness and pat dry. Wash and remove ends of zucchini, then cut lengthwise into approx. ⅛” thick slices. Wash and slice tomatoes. Set aside.
Mix Hari Cilantro Chutney and sugar, set aside.
Generously grease a flat skillet and bring to medium heat. Add tofu and zucchini slices and lightly sprinkle with salt. Grill on both sides until they are light-brown in color. Remove from skillet and wipe skillet clean.
Slice rolls lengthwise through the center and lightly spread with olive oil on the inside portion. Place on medium-heat skillet to toast. Turn off the heat.
Assemble the sandwich over the skillet: Turn over the roll and lightly spread Hari Cilantro Chutney on the bottom half of the roll. Layer with lettuce followed by tofu slices. Spread tofu with more chutney. Layer with zucchini followed by tomatoes. Cover with the top half of the roll.

Editors Review

Tofu has taken the place of cheese in a vegan's diet, so here is an Indian recipe that's especially made for all vegan friends out there. Chef Manjula is preparing the sandwich with little twist and that is addition of mouth-watering cilantro chutney. The dish is ideal for breakfasts and even snacks. The quality of the video is not very good but one can easily follow the instructions and make the sandwiches.
