Easy to make Sandwiches.

As they say "like mother like daughter," I am seeing my daughters take delightful interest in the art of culinary skills! I am myself very eager to attempt and experiment with food preparation and I see that my daughters too like working with new recipes and they have been receiving handsome compliments for their efforts.
It was a proud moment for me when my daughter's recipe got selected in a local contest - this I am sure is very motivating for her and should further motivate her too keep the ball rolling!
This is a recipe for a simple sandwich but with amazing flavour. The best part is, there is no hunting for ingredients, no rushing to the grocery store, moving from one aisle to another, looking for customer assistance when unable to locate or decipher what a particular ingredient, and also no searching for substitutes!
Sandwiches are no fuss and easy meals, it's all about assembling of things together, this does not in anyway interfere with your other activities. So we owe it to John Montague who is today most known as the man who popularized the sandwich!

1 bunch fresh Coriander
1" Ginger
2 Garlic cloves
3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
4 Green Chillies
salt to taste
1 medium Tomato
1 medium Cucumber
1 medium Red Onion
 Sandwich Bread
For the paste:
Put mint, coriander, ginger, garlic, chillies and salt in a mixer and mix until a coarse paste. Transfer the coarse paste in a bowl and mix it with mayonnaise.

For the sandwich:
Cut the tomato, onion and cucumber in thin slices (you will need only 2 to 3 slices for 1 sandwich). Lightly toast 2 breads. Spread the mint chutney paste on one side of each bread. Lay the sliced vegetables on one side of the bread and  lay the 2nd bread on top and voila, your mint chutney sandwich is ready.
