Print Friendly and PDF
Finger sandwich is in my try list for long time. I have heard from my friends its a good tea sandwich to please a gathering. English style finger sandwich can be prepared with different stuffing whereas in Indian style, people make it with mayonnaise mixed with vegetables or with green chutney, cucumber and tomato. As I have already posted mayonnaise sandwich, I tried finger sandwich with green chutney and cucumber for our weekend breakfast. It came out so tasty and colorful. Looks so cute too. I am sure this finger sandwich would be a super hit among the kids if you make it with mayonnaise base or with green chutney like this. Use fresh bread for the best taste. Also you can make this sandwich ahead of time but keep it in an air tight box, wrapped with damp paper towel or a wax paper and refrigerate till use to prevent the bread from drying.

Ok Friends, do try this easy, yummy, Indian style finger sandwich recipe and share your feedback with me.
