All you need is a few ingredients to get started. You can use the vegetable of your choice to prepare the sandwich.

I have made a quick cucumber sandwich for my little one and used green chutney to make it healthier lunch box dish. Cucumbers are loaded with vitamins and minerals. It promoted hydration and is rich in natural antioxidants.

I prefer to make fresh green chutney for the sandwich base, you can also stock the green chutney and use it as per the need. When refrigerated,  the green chutney can last 4-5 days.  Here goes the quick cucumber sandwich recipe.

Method To Prepare

  1. Cut the cucumber and onion into thin slices. Cut all the 4 edges of brown bread and keep it aside.
  2. We are going to prepare 3 layers cucumber sandwich, begin with generously spreading green chutney on 1st bread slice. Top the bread slice with a thin cucumber slice. I used 5 cucumber slices to cover up the bread.
  3. Take 2nd bread and spread mayonnaise on it and top it with onion and cucumber slices (2 onion and 2 cucumbers). Make sure the bread is covered well with veggies.
  4. Spread tomato sauce on the 3rd bread and place it on top of the 2nd bread slice. 3 layered sandwich is ready to be grilled.
  5. Apply a generous amount of butter on top of sandwich and grill both the sides for 2-3 minutes in medium flame. You can also grill the cucumber sandwich in a grill pan until both the sides are golden.
  6. Serve the cucumber sandwich hot with tomato sauce.

 

Tips

  1. I prefer to use brown bread, you can replace the same with multigrain bread or regular white bread.
  2. You can replace the mayonnaise with curd to make a healthier version of the cucumber sandwich.
  3. Grilling is optional. You can use regular dosa tawa to roast the cucumber sandwich.
  4. The cucumber can be replaced with carrot, beetroots or any other veggies of your choice.
