Chutney sandwich ( Indian style)

Today it's snowing outside no electricity and extreme cold , who wants to go and cook in such a whether ??? it's extremely a lazy day for me.  I like to enjoy such a beautiful whether with a cup of soup and a plate full of Sandwiches . Sandwiches are all time favorites and I like them because one can experiment a lot with sandwiches already so many types are available in market but it is entirely up to an individual  how they want theirs, that's why sandwich parlors are there.It's so simple that anybody can make it even kids , just need a few ingredients , little ideas , vege of your choice and you can create your own subway yourself . 
Let's take you to the experimental journey of sandwiches . First in series is a very simple chutney sandwich even in this simple sandwich you can experiment a lot lets see the variations..

   Chutney Sandwich


1 small bowl ... mint chutney
10 big slices .. bread
50 g ..........butter
8-9 tbsp ...grated cheese 

For the Mint Chutney:

a handful - fresh mint leaves
a small bunch - coriander leaves
4 - green chillies
1 - small onion
1 small piece - ginger
6 flakes - garlic
1 - lemon
salt to taste
9-10  tbsp tomato ketchup 


Prepare the green mint chutney by grinding together all the ingredients to a smooth paste.
Trim the sides of the bread. Apply butter on half the slice of the bread; apply chutney to the other half.
On the buttered slice of the bread apply tomato ketchup and grated cheese .
Place the slice with chutney on top and diagonally cut into two halves.
Repeat the same with other slices of bread.
Serve with hot soup or with evening tea. 

Variations ..

1. Instead of regular green chutney you can give a tasty twist to it by adding a little curd and fresh coconut to it.
2. You can add dates in chutney to give a little sweet tinge. 
3. Instead of grated cheese u can add cheese slice or just omit cheese and add salad leaves .
4. Can take three slices and add ketchup layer separately as I did in these sandwiches to gave them a nice look .

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting. My dietitian sugges…

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
