This tricolour sandwich is to celebrate the orange, the white and the green — colours of India. Every day is a great day to celebrate being an Indian, but Independence Day is a great day to share that pride with everyone.
Independence Day evokes such fond memories of childhood — going to school all dressed up in the crispiest uniform, watching the tricolour unfold, singing the anthem and coming back with a bag of sweets. Ever since we moved out of India, we have tried to keep that tradition up by going to the embassy. I love looking up to our flag unfolding and the stream of flower petals coming down.
Double Decker Tricolour sandwich
Preparation Time: 10 mins| Cooking Time: 10 mins| Makes 8 small triangles
2 potatoes, boiled
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp green chutney
Salt and Black pepper to taste
6 white breads
* Peel and cut the carrots into tiny cubes.
* In a bowl, mix the carrots with mayonnaise and a little salt and pepper seasoning. Keep aside.
* In another bowl, grate the boiled and peeled potatoes. Add in the green chutney and mix well.
*Take one slice of bread. Add the first green layer of potatoes mixed with green chutney.
* Top with another bread. Add the second orange layer of carrots and mayo.
* Top with the third bread. Cut into triangles and repeat with the second set of bread slices.
* I didn’t use cheese, but especially if you making this for kids, do indulge in a cheese slice in the middle of the sandwich. In this sandwich the second white bread make the layer for white colour, instead you can use a layer of grated cheese or paneer too.
