Apple & Carrot Sandwich

30 Jul

This is a little twist from the regular sandwiches that we have. Though the name of the sandwich sounds sweet but its not soo sweet. When you combine the cream cheese with apple it somehow subdues the sweetness of the apples. The combination of apple and carrot is nice and refreshing. It is one of the light sandwiches which you would like to have with some light flavors.

Somehow one of the mundane sandwiches that I sometimes land up having is cucumber and tomatoes. But this is a good replacement to it.

One of the must haves for a breakfast is Cream Cheese. Nowadays it is readily available in departmental stores. You can used cream cheese in any sandwich you prepare. It is lighter than cheese and yet gives really nice cheesy taste.

So here is what you would need:

Makes 6 finger sandwiches

Ingredients
½ cup apple
½ cup carrots
4 tbsp cream cheese
4 slices of bread
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper

Method:
Mix apple, salt, pepper and 2 tbsp cream cheese in one bowl.
Take another bowl and mix carrots, cream cheese (2tbsp), salt and black pepper.
Cut the edges of the bread. Spread the apple mixture on one slice. Cover it with another slice.
Now put the carrot mixture and spread it. Top it with another slice.
Cut into three narrow finger sandwiches.

Verdict:
Its said what comes out first from your mouth is often a true opinion. So when Js tasted he said ‘its nice’.
To be honest I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but it was worth a try and definitely a repetitive sandwich. This is an adaptation from snack book.

Republic Day Special: Trio Sandwiches

29 Jan

This thursday was the Republic Day so it was a Holiday! Yay! It’s when JS returned from his trip to Hong-Kong. I really missed him. So thursday I was spending most of my time with him. Also, enjoying all my presents. 🙂

India celebrates its Republic Day on the 26th January every year. It is celebrated as India got its constitution on this day. There is an amazing parade at the India Gate in New Delhi to celebrate the event. If you haven’t seen one, you must watch it live in the grounds or on TV. India’s diversity and richness in the culture shows in the parade.

My mum prepared this sandwich for our tiffin. This always reminds of the Indian flag colors. So I decided to prepare it for this Republic Day breakfast. This is soft sandwich and inclusive of yummy chutney in it!
