Easy Sandwich using Cilantro/Coriander spread


Looking for something healthy, easy and tasty to make for snack? Whenever I come back home after work, I get so hungry. I would remember the good old days, when I would come back home after school and tempting snacks would be waiting for you. Samosas, puffs, vadas, bajjis and what not. Sigh!!! 😦 Well, then to comfort myself, I would think that anyway those snacks are not healthy. So why bother to make them 😉 So I remembered some sandwich I had once had at a friends place. All I knew was that it had a spread made of coriander leaves, mint leaves and there was some amount of mayonnaise in it.

So I thought of giving it a try. It came out pretty well. Now, there are some advantages to this snack. 1. You can make this spread and store in the refrigerator and it stays fresh for a week. 2. It is healthier than other Indian snacks you could possibly think of. 3. It is very easy to make. 4. Most of the times you would have a packet of bread and some coriander leaves at home. So no extra shopping required for making this spread 🙂 I hope I have given enough reasons to try this out. This has become one of my favorite snacks and easy to make recipe. Pack it as lunch or grab it when you rush to work in the morning or serve it when you come home tired. It is very refreshing to have any time of the day.
