Boiled Egg Sandwich (Indian Style)


I am attracted to the Roses seen everywhere here during this time,
standing heads-up in front of houses,welcoming guests with its charming smile...
can't wait to see my roses bloom...as its Summer 
Time for Mom's,  to do some extra multitasking , trying hard to keep their super energetic kids busy during the vacation. 


Very filling and nutritious sandwiches these are , easy to make too 
something worth to be in the list while you pack your food-basket for summer-picnic. 

Ingredients 

Bread (White or any Grain) - few slices 
Boiled Eggs - 1 or more (Depending on the number you want to make)
Green Chutney - Few Tbsp's (See recipe below)
Butter - Few Tsp's 
Tomatoes slices - few 
Onion rings - few (Optional, I didn't use)
Salt & Pepper to taste.

Recipe for Green Chutney with Coconut.

Coconut grated - 1/2 cup 
Green chili's - 1 or 2 no's (adjust as per your preference)
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few springs(Use more or less as per your preference) 
Mint Leaves - few (Optional) 
Salt to taste 

Method for Green Chutney - Blend all ingredients to make a coarse paste (May sprinkle some water to make the blending easier)  
Note : The color of the chutney depends on the leaves, if you like the taste of cilantro/coriander leaves add more to make it look more green, this also makes the sandwich colorful. 

Assembling the Sandwich 

* Spread butter over one side of the bread slices & Spread Green chutney over it. 

                       

Wish I had more Cilantro to add in my Chutney,
would have looked more green then , making this sandwich look colorful :( 
* Place Egg slices over the chutney & Sprinkle salt & pepper. 


* Place Tomatoes (and Onion -if using) over the Egg slices.

   
* Cover this with another piece of Bread - spread with some butter on the inside. 


* Cut its ends off , slice to make desirable shapes and Serve. 



Notes 
            : Use any bread /Bun that you like , may toast the bread slices with some butter if you like. 
            : Use more Cilantro/Coriander leaves in the chutney to make it look more green, also makes the sandwich colorful. I didn't have much Cilantro to add  :( 
            : Add onion to give this sandwich some crunch, if you dislike the taste of raw onion, rinse the onion rings with some water after mixing it with little salt, drain'em nicely or else it will make the bread soggy. 
            : Health conscious ? Use the white part of the eggs alone  & enjoy it guilt free 

Cheers
