I am in the mood to eat a sandwich! Are you? A sandwich with tomatoes, onions and a tangy smooth and robust chutney. No butter, no pickles, no other frills….just a simple sandwich :). A simple desire to feed the soul!
This is such a simple chutney or pesto if you want to call it, that you would be surprised by its taste when you blitz your blender!
I made a batch. Filled one jar for current use and put the other in freezer.
Makes : almost 1 cup
Kitchen equipment required : Blender
Cilantro : 2 big bunches or 4 cups, washed and cleaned. Use the tender stens as well. They add to the bulk.
Jalapeño : 1-2 or 4-5 green chillies or less if you like it mild.
Ginger : 1 big piece
Peanuts, raw, unsalted, deshelled : 1/4 cup
Rock salt : to taste or use table salt
Dry mango powder : 2 tbsp or use 2-3 tbsp of lemon juice
Water : approximately 1/4 cup
Put all the ingredients in the blender and blitz till you get a smooth paste.
Yes, that’s it :).
A great spread or chutney or a dip for:
Side for poppers and fritters
Toss your sprouts in it to add a zing
Let your imagination go wild and have fun!
I used it as a spread to my sandwich :).
This humble sandwich has every reason to be very proud of itself 🙂
I could eat this every day. I love soups and sandwiches for lunch.
Sonal- this reminds me of my lunch box in school! Xx Aditi
It was a staple in my lunch box too :).
Your humble sandwich looks perfect, Sonal. Simple is sometimes best. And most flavorful!
Your chutney/pesto is looks so very delicious! That is my type of sandwich- vegetarian, wholesome, made with simple bold flavors, and very tasty!
Thanks Gerard 🙂
Well, my mouth and stomach are making all sorts of sighing sounds right now. Your sandwich looks so delicious!
Slurp slurp !!
Love the pesto recipe, thank you 🙂 x
I am sure you will like it. Grilled some eggplant as onions tomatoes garlic and jalapeños yesterday in the oven. Am wondering either to make Indian style bharta or mash or some middle eastern dish. Any suggestions?
Ooh…that’s a lovely mix of ingredients! You know me, I’d turn it into a salsa or a dip, or turn them into a wonderful salad and top with one of your fab dressings 🙂
Last night, I took a portion from each grilled vegetable, mashed roughly with fork, added salt and some mustard oil and voila…..tasted so good with just no seasoning and the nasal tang that mustard creates…yumm..
Oh lovely…I had roasted vegetables yesterday too, aubergines, courgettes and butternut squash..so nice
Gotta try this one!! 🙂
Do give it a try…easy peasy and nothing fancy
Quick n easy …. I like!
Chandni : muaah
Lovely sandwich… I wish I could eat it sitting in the park during a sunny and warm day…. thank you to bring my mind out of the cold Canadian weather, even for a few minutes…
Oh it snowed here yesterday and this sandwich totally elevated my mood :).
Always in the mood for a sandwich! Your sandwich looks delightful.
Thanks my dear..it’s always good to hear form you :).
Sounds delicious. Sometimes simple is even better than complex could ever be!
For some reason, I can only like your posts and can’t leave the comments :(.
That’s so weird – Melissa was having the same problem yesterday. What error is it showing when you try to post?
It just doesn’t show the comment box! Shows only like star and reblog feature. And it’s been happening since last couple of posts.
So weird. Is it lower down (on the bottom) of the page?
Nah nothing,..acyptually the like button is not working either. Have you been receiving notifications of likes and comments from others lately? Since I can do it for other posts but yours…. I hope I am not frustrating you…. 🙁
You aren’t frustrating me at all! I need to know when things aren’t working! :). I just saw a comment from you – hopefully working now?
I love this! There is nothing better than a tomato sandwich on a summer’s day… but this? you’ve just taken that tomato sandwich over the top!! LOVE it!! 🙂
My dear BBB :)))…. This is such a light and mood elevating sandwich :).
