My mother-in-law would make this very often for her kids when they came home hungry from school. My husband, eating this the other day, was feeling so nostalgic about it that I simply had to try it. Its a delicious, quick-fix snack for kids and adults alike.
6 slices Sandwich Bread
For the chutney:
1 tbsp grated Coconut
1/4 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp roasted Channa Dal/ Gram Dal (Pottu Kadalai in Tamil)
1 pinch Chilli Powder
1 pinch Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp Fennel (Saunf)
1 clove Garlic
Salt, to taste
Grind the ingredients for the chutney with a little bit of water. The chutney should be of a spread-able consistency (similar to soft butter). Spread the chutney on both sides of the slices of bread.
Heat a saute pan with a little bit of butter. When heated, put the bread on the pan, two slices at a time. Allow it to brown and then turn over and brown both sides. Serve warm.
Your kids will love it (and make sure they’re not looking when you sneak a couple of bites!).
