Before I begin I would like to thank the Earl of Sandwich for popularizing sandwich.

 I had read in the Reader’s Digest that he had done quite a few experiments much to the discomfort of his family and no doubt after spending a lot of time and money when his experiments were discarded. The recent version that I read was that invented sandwich for practical purposes which was play cards not waste time eating.

 I tried searching for the article in RD, but could not find it, however here is one of the many that you can google for the history of sandwich. 

Whatever had it not been for him one of us would have had to reinvent the age old method of eating bread and meat/veggies in our case.
Sandwiches are served in different forms with meat or without meat, with veggies or a mix of both.

My kids love chutney sandwiches so when I tried this different filling in their sandwich I was unsure of the reactions, but when I did not get any complaints it is taken for granted that the sandwiches were enjoyed. I did not ask them “Aa Bail Mujhe MAar”! No thanks.

So let us get down to the nitty gritty. You can make the filling in advance or at the last possible moment. Since I made it in advance it was back to the fridge again till evening. When I had my share it tasted fantastically chilled.  Hubby dear wanted crushed garlic in his!

½ cup hung curd
1 tsp pepper freshly ground (adjust as per taste)
1 cup carrot grated (beets grated will look awesome)
½ tsp sugar (optional)
Garlic crushed (adjust as per taste)
Green chilies minced (adjust as per taste)
Pumpkin peel chutney
Bread slices

1.    Mix all the ingredients except the bread slices.
2.    I let it sit in the fridge till evening.
3.    In the evening spread the mixture on only one slice
4.    On the other slice spread the chutney.
5.    Close the sandwich and chomp it up.

PS. For Pumpkin peels chutney use pumpkin peels, and red chili powder, in place of green chili and cucumber peels no coriander and curry leaves and this recipe of cucumber peel chutney.
