Tricolor Sandwich | Chutney Sandwich

India celebrates its 71 st Republic day on this day with great fervour and zeal. Republic day always reminds me of the republic day parade and am happy that I could once attend the parade when we resided in New Delhi. The chill mornings of January in Delhi is hard to sit out but people from all over the country line up early in the morning to witness the parade wearing sweaters, jackets, caps and wrapped in shawls. If we think of the soldiers patrolling at the borders in Siachen , the freezing temperatures they handle then the winters of Delhi is nothing. Now, I love watching the Republic day parade every year in TV showcasing our Indian Military might which is one of the important events of the year. There are also tableaus, folk dances representing different states, bike stunts and air shows during the parade. I feel proud to be a part of this rich heritage and culture. Proud to be an Indian !!

Today's recipe is a simple sandwich that you can make in no time but these chutneys represent a foody representation of our flag colours. Hope you like it. The sandwich uses both green chutney and tomato chutney. If you have both ready at hand this sandwich can be prepared in no time. Enjoy making these any time for snacks or if you love sandwiches for breakfast.

bread slices 6
spicy green chutney 3 tbsp
tomato chutney 3 tbsp

  • Prepare the chutneys or use store brought spicy green chutney and make the tomato chutney as in the link.
  • Cut the sides of the bread (I have used regular bread but its better to use sandwich bread).
  • Now spread the tomato chutney(1.5 tbsp) on one layer and then place a bread. Then apply the spicy green chutney on the second bread and finish by placing a third slice on top.
  • Lightly press by placing a small weight on the bread for 5 minutes. Then cut diagonally and serve.
* You can butter the inside of each slice of bread and lightly toast them to add more flavor. I did this for kids but for us kept it plain.
