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. It’s just one of those inexplicable things we do. One of our favourites is always the sandwiches with pudina chutney.
Since I got a mint plant for my balcony, 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)
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.
Serve mint chutney cheese sandwiches hot with ketchup.
What kind of cheese do you prefer to add? Indian Amul Cheese or American cheese?
i use the kraft cheddar cheese slices, usually. but anything goes 🙂
Isn't your recipe gong to yield soggy sandwiches?? Sandwiches are not my fav, anyway. But, when I do make chutney sandwiches, I prefer to lightly butter them before I apply the chutney. This creates an oily barrier in between the chutney and the bread, keeping it light and fluffy even after toasting them. This way, while eating them they don't stick to your palette. If not, the gooey mass sticks to the roof of your mouth and takes away all the fun from enjoying your sandwich.
great point! i do add some butter to my toast but not all the time. also, i eat immediately!
This turned out great yday!!!
Myself and my hubby had this after a long work day and its easy,tasty and quick!!
