Vegetable cheese sandwich



During last summer vacation, one of our close friend requested us to share some no - cooking kids friendly recipes in my blog. Even though I shared some recipes personally, I was not able to put any of such dishes in my blog. I was so busy with my kids those days. Anyway, this time,  I am planning to share some non-cooking and easy dishes in this platform. Hope this will help you too.

Sandwiches are one such no cooking dishes and of course, it is kids friendly. We can serve it  them for breakfast, dinner, teatime ...in short at any time. Also, we know it is a very convenient lunch box dish.

The sandwich is a dish where a piece of meat or cheese is placed between slices of bread. Today, We have an Indian street style sandwich. Here, cheese and thinly sliced vegetables are sandwich between the bread slices along with green chutney.

The green chutney we used here can be used as dip for many veg and non-veg starters. Here I have used both curd and lemon in order to give a slight sour taste. If your curd is sour then you can omit the lemon.

Do not make too much watery chutneys. For me, I love to have a thick chutney coating over my bread slices. If you make it too runny, then it will be difficult to spread and also the bread slices will turn mushy. Also, try to use fresh leaves to get the green vibrant color.

For me,this is so special sandwich because it is my kids all time favorite. They love this for the first time. Today,  I am sharing this is for you. Try and enjoy
