Today's post – Butter Gulkand Chilli Sandwich - is the last in Kids Delight Series for BM # 29 - and its a delightful yummy sandwich with Gulkand (Rose Petal Preserve) and chillies (Bell pepper minced). It came about more as a last minute stuff when I had run out of most essentials when we came back from vacation last month and all of us were hungry to the core. Thankfully we had picked Brown Bread on our way back home, so this was a quick to make and filling sandwich. I have used minced and deseeded chillies for me and S, and diced bell pepper for the kiddo.
The earthy sweetness of the Gulkand (one of my favourite preserves - there is a story to this, next time for sure) and the heat of the chillies were totally married to each other, and S, who generally doesnt like bread or sandwiches for breakfast actually complemented me on the combo (little did he know I made this for a lark, hoping it would be accepted).. Its also a great variation from the usual Sandwiches at any Kid's party, and a break from the usual Jam and Cucumber Sandwiches is always welcome, isnt it ?

Cooking with Colours :
Now, lets go to today's post.
Prep time : 10 mins | Grill Time : 10 mins | Serves : 3
- Brown Bread Slices - 8
- Butter Gulkand - 1/2 cup
- (Slightly warm 2 TBSP butter and in the same pan, add Gulkand. Switch off the flame and mix the two together - it must be of a spreadable consistency)
- Onions minced - 1 TBSP (optional)
- Butter / Ghee - to apply on the bread (optional - I didnt add)
- Salt - to taste ( we used actually just a pinch for each set of sandwich)
- White Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
- Minced and Deseeded Chillies - 1 or 2 TBSP
- Minced Green Bell Pepper - 3 tsp (for kids)
Slightly trim the bread.
Divide the Butter Gulkand into 2/3 and 1/3 portions : To the 2/3 portion, add the green chillies, and to the other, add diced bell pepper
If using additional butter, apply them on one side of each bread. On the other side, spread 1 tsp or more of the Butter Gulkand till it spreads well. Leave a margin around the edges. Sprinkle requisite salt and pepper powder.
Heat a tava. Bring the two slices together sandwiching the Gulkand and slightly toast the buttered side on both the slices for 1-2 mins.
Cut and serve immediately.
