Lets talk some about today s sandwich. Now, if you all thought sandwiches are only synonymous to grilled cheese and pesto, i am about to change that thought. I dont follow recipes for a sandwich. Even salads too. I add what comes to my mind and strikes my fancy. And i have surprised myself each and every time. Because of the out come. This sandwich recipe is an indo chinese sandwich that i put together for lunch. The flavor burst simply took my tongue over. The soy and chili sauce lends a sharpness and heat to the sandwich but is balanced wonderfully by that cream cheese. The mint shines through all of this, making you crave for some more. Its not something one would normally come across in a sandwich stall but its something that you will love. As a snack box treat. As breakfast. As that tea time bite.
