Sandwich Chutney / Green Chutney for Sandwich / Sandwich with Green chutney

                  


              I enjoyed growing up eating lot of chaat items from Sowcarpet area and also with my North Indian Friends. Sandwich was one such item introduced to me by my friends. Loved watching our "Sandwichwalla" making it and playing with his knife while spreading that "Tikka Green chutney" and butter like a drummer rolls his sticks while playing. 




           After coming to the US, I learnt that Sandwiches are possible without chutney's too...still our taste is totally Indian and love that green tangy chutney. So here goes my recipe,




Ingredients:
For chutney:
Mint leaves / Pudhina - your hand full or 1 small bunch
Coriander leaves - your hand full or 1 small bunch
Green chilli - 3 no's (increase or decrease according to your taste)
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic - 1 small pod
Onion - 1 tablespoon (finely chopped)
Lemon juice - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - as needed

For sandwich:
Onion - 4 Thin sliced pieces
Tomato -  4 Thin sliced pieces
Potato -  4 Thin sliced boiled pieces
Cucumber - 4 Thin sliced pieces
Butter - 1 tablespoon(in room temperature)
Bread - 4 slices
Salt - a pinch
Pepper - a pinch

Method:
  • Grind all the ingredients together in a grinder to a fine paste and check for salt.


  • Spread butter on all the four slices. Spread green chutney on one side of a bread slice. Arrange sliced vegetables, sprinkle some salt and pepper, slice and serve. We can also toast them on a toaster for making it a toasted sandwich.

  8. Just love the burst of coriander, mint and the rest. I will keep the chutney to be eaten with rice because somehow bread is just too difficult for my taste.

  21. Hi Divya, Your chutney must be bursting with flavours and so refreshing too. I can imagine that your sandwiches with the chutney spread must be just out of the world.
    Yes, I was happy that you also baked a wacky chocolate cake. After all it is our love and passion for baking that we share that got us together. Isn't it?
