Mushroom Sandwich

'Little froggy went to school.... sitting on his mushroom stool '
Its said ' Necessity is the mother of invention'. As the saying goes, K is very fond of eating light snacks after coming back from work. I used to break my head on what to make until I saw this nice Sandwich maker in Emax. I started making my own inventive sandwiches and he enjoyed eating them. This one is a mushroom sandwich and yes it turned out very juicy inside and crunchy on the outside. These are simple recipes and there is no hard and fast rules to be followed and can be replaced with any veg/meat of your choice.



White Bread - 4 slices (If preferred, brown bread can also be used)
Mushroom - 5 pieces chopped (please avoid the stem for sandwich)
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Lettuce - 2 or 3


Mayonnaise - little (if you don't have you can use a cheese slice)
Tomato Ketchup - little
Butter - for brushing the bread slices

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp


Heat little oil in a pan. Fry the onions till soft. Then add the mushrooms and sauté for a while. Then add all the spices and little water and cover and cook for 10-15 mins. Open the lid and sauté nicely till all water evaporates and the mushroom nicely blends with the spices. Turn off the gas and let it cool for few mins.

Meanwhile slightly brush the outer side of 2 bread slices with little butter. Then layer the bread first with a lettuce leaf, then spread the mushroom mixture and top it up with mayo and ketchup. Cover this with another slice of bread. Place the sandwiches in the sandwich maker and close the lid completely till it is locked. Wait for few mins and its ready already.

Yummy Juicy and Crunchy sandwich is ready to eat. If you want you can cut them into two and its easy to eat.
