Dish: Sowcarpet Green Chutney Sandwich from Kalyani
Today I have a very interesting sandwich recipe that I bookmarked from Kalyani’s blog. I knew I had to make this sandwich the minute I saw it. Simple, easy to make and very tasty dish for any time of the day.This dish comes from one of Kalyani’s friend who happens to be a huge foodie. Thanks to him that we got to see this yummy recipe on her blog. This sandwich is made with murukku, but can also be made with bread slices. Check out Kalyani’s post on how the dish looks when made with murukku.I made mine with bread slices. The Sowcarpet green chutney is the main component of the dish and once you have that made, it is a breeze to get it all done. This chutney is different from the regular green chaat chutney. It has roasted peanuts that gives a nice creamy texture to the chutney. It is spicy, tangy and slightly sweet. Adding cheese would be a delicious addition but I kept the dish vegan and made it without any cheese. I love how this dish has some amazing flavors and textures. It is probably one of my most favorite sandwiches.
