1 eggplant, sliced into strips

2 red bell peppers

1 tsp. Olive oil

8 count Button Mushrooms/White Mushrooms

3 cloves garlic, crushed

Focaccia bread

Mayonnaise (Optional)


  1. Start by adding little oil (you can also use oil spray) in a non-stick dosa pan/fry pan followed by   eggplant and fry for 3 to 4 minutes and keep it aside (you can add salt and pepper while frying).
  2.  Similarly fry the red pepper and mushrooms separately and set aside to cool.
  3.  Stir crushed garlic into mayonnaise and slice focaccia in half lengthwise.
  4.  Spread mayonnaise mixture on one halves and start arranging the cooked veggies on focaccia.
  5.  Then wrap sandwich using plastic wrap and place a cutting board on top of it and weight it down with some heavy bag (I used rice bag).
  6.  Allow sandwich to sit for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
  7.  Slice them and enjoy with any soup.


  • If you don’t like to use mayonnaise, add the crushed garlic along with any one of the veggies while frying and mix it well.
  •  If you don’t have bread machine, it is ok to use your hand to make a bread dough but make sure the dough must be very fine like chapatti dough.
