Tiranga Sandwich is basically a simple sandwich of Chutneys and butter. This is one of the simplest and tastiest recipes I have come across. All you need to have is the chutneys of your choice, butter and Bread.
Why do we call it a Tiranga Sandwich ? Because it has the three colors of our Indian flag. Butter represents the white, chutney represents the green and tomato represents the saffron. When the flavours of all three merge together, Its the best blend you may imagine.
No toasting on tawa is essential. Though its a matter of personal preference, so if you like it hot you may toast it before applying the chutneys. Also, some like to remove the edges of bread but I prefer it with edges as thats the crunchy part I love the most. I have used Atta bread, Amul Butter, Tomato Ketchup and homemade green Pudina Dhaniya chutney.

This is a favourite recipe of mine and I got to learn this from my sister-in-law. She is a great cook and this is one of the first few things of culinary art that I learnt from her. When we get bored from paranthas, fried food and wish to have a simple yet tasty breakfast, then we used to make this sandwich. Its a quick meal which doesnt involve chopping etc. You may make the chutney a day before. Infact, we make green chutneys almost all round the year and when we have lots of it, we make these delicious sandwiches. The recipe involves using melted butter and when I say this, I mean that you may take the butter out from the fridge around 1-2 hours before making the Tiranga sandwich. (In winters, add an extra 1 hour). Chutneys should be of room temperature.
First you may spread green chutney on one slice of bread, on another slice spread butter. Take the third slice and spread ketchup. I prefer to spread extra layer of butter when I merge the third slice with the other two. You may choose to spread whichever you like the most. Then dip this sandwich in your choice of chutney and enjoy with a cup of ginger tea.
Lets get started !!. Do share your experience with me.
