Ribbon Sandwiches

 

I first tried out these Sandwiches on my daughter’s 5th birthday. At that time we had to make everything at home and I wanted to make something that looked like a fairy tale cottage. I almost forgot about it as both my kids are now grown up. When I had to teach cooking to a young boy recently, I recollected these easy to make and colorful sandwiches and taught him how to make these at his first cooking class. How time flies… I went back all those years and relived those moments.

Ingredients:

  • Sandwich bread
  • 1 cup  Mint-Coriander chutney
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Tomato sauce
  • 1 large Grated carrot for garnishing
For the Mint-Coriander chutney
  • 1 Bunch Mint leaves
  • 1 bunch coriander leaves
  • 4 green chilies
  • 1 bunch spring onion or 1 normal onion
  • 4 pods garlic
  • 1 tsp tamarind paste
  • Salt to taste

Method:

Put all the ingredients in a mixer and puree till paste form and serve.

Method for Sandwiches:

  1.  Spread the green chutney on one slice and place a buttered one on top of it.
  2. Then apply sauce on this slice and place another slice of bread on it.
  3.  4 slices in all make a sandwich.
  4. Cut the edges of the bread and diagonally across so that it is triangle shape.
  5. Arrange on a platter like a house .
  6. On the sloping roof add butter and place the grated carrot to look like red roof tiles.
  7. Tuck a soup stick on top like a chimney.
  8. Use toothpicks to hold the sandwiches in place.
  9.  Surround the hut with chips or green fries to look like a garden.

It looks very decorative and colorful and can be made to lure kids who do not eat.
