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,
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
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
- 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.
