Green Mint Chutney & Cheese Sandwiches - Quick & Easy Snack Recipes

Picnic food is fun to make, especially if you are not really going on a picnic but just pretending to on a rainy, weary weeknight. These green chutney and cheese sandwiches are just the thing if you are looking for a quick and easy snack or meal.

About once a month, TH and I have sandwiches for dinner. Its just one of those inexplicable things we do. One of our favourites is always the sandwiches with pudina chutney.

Since I got my mint plant, there's no dearth of fresh mint and I love using fresh herbs in my cooking. Well, don't we all?

This is a quick sandwich recipe that works great for a picnic, tiffin box or even brunch or tea party. It tastes great and is filling too!

Mint Chutney and Cheese Sandwiches (Pudina Chutney Sandwich Recipe)
Makes 4 - Serves 2

Ingredients:
8 slices of bread of your choice
4 slices of cheese

For the Mint Chutney:
A bunch of fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated coconut
1 green chilli
1/2 tsp minced garlic (optional)
A pinch of dry ginger powder or 1/2" piece of fresh ginger
Salt to taste

Grind all ingredients together with very little water to a smooth paste.

To assemble and toast the sandwiches: Spread a generous amount of the mint chutney on one side of the bread slice. Top with a slice of cheese and toast in a sandwich maker until done. You can also toast in a pan on the stovetop with a pat of butter until both sides are golden brown and the cheese has melted.
