Butter Gulkand Chilli Sandwich | Easy Lunchbox recipes

Today’s post – Butter Gulkand Chilli
– 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 ?
