Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.

If you're feeling a little peckish, there's nothing like a quick chutney sandwich to instantly give you a lift. The chutney here is a blend of fresh ingredients and spices that keeps well for at least four days, so it's ready to whip into snack perfection on demand.

This type of green chutney is a popular condiment in most homes, where it's commonly used as a spread, dip, or spicy accompaniment to dishes like puri-bhaaji ( a deep-fried bread and potato preparation). You can add whatever filling you like to your sandwich—fresh vegetables, a little shredded chicken, or even mashed potatoes.
