Mint Chutney Sandwich with Cheese and Cucumber | Easy Bread Recipes

Mint was never really a favorite herb of mine.Part of the reason why i disliked it was because I had tasted more of mint flavored products than the real deal.So whenever the mention of mint came,I started getting a toothpaste/mouthwash smell,gross right.But all it took to change that was the small herb garden in our balcony.

Something like,fruit of your labour?I started liking mint and thought of ways to introduce it in our menu.Ajay has been reminiscing a lot about the mint sandwich that his amma made during their picnics and outings.I've been thinking to make a sandwich for a while too for the blog so what better way to incorporate both ideas than this one.

I had planned to make the sandwich from scratch,starting with the bread.I am still stuck in a Hokkaido Bread hangover.But I knew the sandwich idea might get postponed so got a packet of brown bread and set out to make the chutney.Mint chutney is quite versatile too-smear it on a bread or even dosa and add it to raita or pulao,having a bowl of mint chutney in the fridge can really give you new recipe ideas,believe me!
