Bread Butter Jam Toast / Sandwich Recipe

Bread butter jam

Bread Butter Jam Recipe is the simplest and the basic sandwich recipe even a kid can make it easily. Usually kids make this for fireless cooking in school competitions.  I still remember this was my breakfast during our honey moon in Srilanka in a Five star hotel😀. Here in Bangalore, I have tasted bun butter jam in small sandwich shops and I just love it. Today I made the same using fresh bread slices. I think most of the moms pack this bread butter jam for their kids school lunch box or snacks box as it can be prepared easily under few minutes. In my case, I have never packed this for Raksha as she is not a big fan of jam based recipes. Somehow she hates the sweet taste in store bought jams. But myself and Sendhil likes to have it once in a while for our breakfast during weekends. So last Sunday, I made this for ourselves and plain bread toast with butter for Raksha which is her favorite. As we all know, the plain bread butter jam is not a healthy choice for kids. Consuming it once in a while is not an issue but I won’t recommend to eat it regularly. So, to make it more healthy and interesting, we can add some toppings like chopped nuts, sliced fruits, sliced avocado, cheese etc. You can play with your imaginations and do it based on your kids likings. You can serve it raw or toast it as I did. Tastes good in either ways. But use fresh or 1 day old bread slices for best taste. Now lets see how to make the simple and basic bread butter jam recipe with step by step pictures.

Green Chutney Cheese Sandwich Recipe - How To Make Chutney Sandwich

Green chutney cheese sandwich
Green chutney sandwich with cheese was my recent try in sandwich recipes. I tried this recipe after tasting in a sandwich shop here. Spicy Indian style green chutney with grated cheese stuffed sandwich was tasting so good. Kids would love it for sure. Raksha loved it with tomato ketchup. For me and Sendhil, I skipped adding cheese as we both are not a big fan of it. We loved the toasted, plain green chutney sandwich as such. Green chutney for sandwich can be prepared in many ways. Here I have made it simple without adding coconut, chaat masala etc. Instead I used roasted gram dal / chutney dal for to make a thick spreadable chutney. Roasted gram dal helps to give a binding and acts as a thickening agent.  To make bright green colored chutney, I used turmeric powder and a pinch of sugar. Do not skip it. Ok, lets see how to make cheese chutney sandwich recipe with step by step pictures.

    Veg Mayonnaise Sandwich Recipe – How To Make Mayo Sandwich Recipe Indian

    Mayonnaise Veg Sandwich
    Vegetable Mayonnaise sandwich was in my try list for long time. I make sandwich recipes only during weekends if I have less time to prepare breakfastWinking. Most of the time I make vegetable sandwich in this way. Recent days I started looking for varieties of Indian vegetarian sandwich ideas. One such recipe is this Veg Mayo sandwich. In fact my friend Shalini told this recipe long back but couldn’t try it. Last week I bought a box of Fun Foods Veg Mayonnaise ( eggless mayonnaise) to slather in Veg burger for my daughter. Suddenly I reminded about this sandwich and tried it with few leftover bread slices at home. As the sandwich filling/spread is a no cook recipe,I felt it very easy to make.The only time consuming part is to grate or chop the vegetables finelyTongue. When you make it for just two people, its not that difficult too. I have toasted the bread with butter before filling with the mayonnaise spread. But toasting the bread is completely optional. If you want to prepare a quick and simple sandwich, you can just smear butter in the fresh, plain bread slice and enjoy it. If your kids like this sandwich, you can pack this for their snack box. Overall, this sandwich is a good choice for Indian vegetarians to make a quick breakfast or dinner. Ideal for bachelors and working women. Lets see how to make Vegetable mayo sandwich recipe with step by step pictures. I will upload the video soon.
