Murukku Sandwich & Sandwich Chutney Recipes
Yes, that’s right it’s indeed Muruku Sandwich. Are you thinking what’s on earth is that, well it’s nothing but vegetable layer between two mini muruku pieces to make sandwich. It apparently famous in Chennai, I gain knowledge about these sandwiches from my sister. I liked the idea so thought of sharing with you all, hope you like it too.
We all know about green chutney and most of us use same for sandwich too but then my dear sister told me about this sandwich chutney which made in a little different way than green chutney. This recipe is from street vendors whom sell bread sandwich on road side. In this chutney one ingredient used is cucumber peel, after peeling all the cucumber for sandwiches they use peel/skin to make chutney, interesting right? I asked my sister 10 times is she sure this the way it’s done and she assured me this is the recipe indeed.
