I am going to post some of the simplest possible dishes every now and then. These are the ones any newbies can make and even the experts love such recipes when they are in hurry. I learnt these when I was working for a IT company in Bangalore. I used to prepare breakfast and lunch in the morning. My lunch was always detailed, I hardly took any shortcuts. So at such times, I would make some easy and very tasty sandwiches for breakfast.
In Bangalore, these grilled sandwiches are available in many Darshinis(popular fast food joints). I always loved these. So when my friend gifted me a sandwich maker, I started making these at home. This is not the actual recipe from Darshinis, but what I have tried and tested many times. This is my hubby’s favorite breakfast.
8 slices of bread
1 boiled potato
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1/4 cup mint leaves(optional)
2 tbl spn olives (optional)
3-4 green chilies
1/4 tea spn tamarind (or 1 piece of normal tamarind)
1/2 cup grated coconut(fresh/frozen)
Mint leaves available in US are very strong, so decrease it according to taste.
Make a chutney of coriander-mint leaves, ginger, green chilies, tamarind, coconut and salt (without adding too much water).
Apply a thick layer of chutney on one side of bread. Spread potato slices, onion and olives on it.
Apply another thick layer of chutney on second slice. Keep the second slice with the chutney facing down on the first slice. Grill it in sandwich maker. Follow the same with other slices.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 10mins
PS: Follow the instructions on the sandwich maker for the grilling instructions. I grill my sandwiches very lightly. You can grill for more time to make them crisp.
