BM# 72: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Festival Special
Dish: Republic Day — Tiranga Sandwich

For the final day of this week’s ‘festival special’, I have a ‘Tiranga sandwich’ for Republic day. Tiranga means tri colored representing the 3 colors of the Indian flag, green-white-saffron.
Tri Colored SandwichThere were quite a few tiranga (tri colored dishes) dish ideas to make but I picked the easiest of all. This sandwich has all my favorite ingredients — spiciness from the mint chutney, creaminess from ricotta cheese (or grated paneer) and tangy from ketchup.
Tri Colored SandwichI found many recipes for this sandwich but I made it with what I had in the fridge. Green layer has mint chutney, cucumbers and baby greens. I used ricotta cheese jazzed up with some chaat masala for white layer. Grated paneer will be a great alternate. Orange layer has mayo spiked with ketchup and tomatoes.Tri Colored SandwichThis sandwich is crunchy, flavorful and very yummy. It is great to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Tri Colored Sandwich
