I was happily napping one fine afternoon (which is rare these days with a 5.5months old hyperactive baby :)), my tummy started kicking me. Opened the fridge no veggies except for 1 not so fresh beetroot and half a packet of bread. I remembered the left over puthina chutney which I had for idly that morning, so made this quick sandwich.
So what are u waiting for.....no veggies in stock try this sandwich with the ingredients that are sure to be in your pantry!
Bread - 4 slices (I usually use wheat bread)
Urad dhal - 2tsp
Mint(puthina) leaves - 3 tbsp
Finely chopped onion -1
Salt to taste
Chilli powder - a pinch
Sambar powder - 2tsp (optional)
Ghee - to toast
1.In 1 tsp of oil, add urad dhal, let it temper then add mint leaves and saute well till the leaves are crushed, add few drops of water and grind it to a fine paste. Keep it aside.
[Though this is not the orginal recipe for puthina chutney this goes well for sandwiches]
2.Drizzle oil, add onion, turmeric powder, chilli powder, sambar powder and saute till onions turn light brown.
3.Take 2 bread slices and apply the mint paste on both the slices.
4.Add the onion filling in between the 2 slices and press it.
5.Toast it with ghee in a toaster/dosa pan.
You can substitute mint leaves with coriander leaves.....It tastes gud too!'Just not any other dish'
