Coconut Yogurt Sandwiches

Living in South India I am more a South Indian than a Sardarni! My cooking and food habits too have become a fusion of the two. Coconut is abundantly available and mustard tempering is common here. These sandwiches are very different from the English sandwiches we are used to and have a completely different taste.


  • 1/2 Sandwich bread
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • ½  coconut grated
  • 2 green chilies
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 3 tsp Oil
  1. Mix the grated coconut with the thick hung yogurt.
  2. Add salt and chillies chopped finely or add a little chilli sauce.
  3. Smear a bread slice with this mixture and place another on top
  4. Cut it in the center into triangles.
  5. Heat a griddle and pour a tsp of oil. Add the mustard seeds and wait till they splutter.
  6. Place the bread on the popping mustard seeds.
  7. Grill the sandwiches on both sides until golden brown.
  8.  Serve hot with sauce or chutney of your choice.
