Sandwich is slices of bread placed in between with some fillings. The history of sandwich goes back long to  Europe in the 18 th century. Since then, it has taken a lot of diversifications. It is found to be an ideal meal for lunch box or picnics, easy to eat and no much mess. Moreover, it involves less work for the mothers. My post of no cook ideas can be read here.

Today various kind of sandwiches are made.Plain , grilled, vegetable , toast  and double decker sandwich. Different kinds of fillings are used to make it tasty .

  1. Jayashree, love both the sandwiches. as you say it has to be fuss free. I can see my family thoroughly enjoying both these without a problem! the topping on the open sandwich looks very well made and delicious!

  2. […] Sweet corn is usually boiled and then lightly sauted with spices as pepper powder, chilli powder or any other seasoning. Butter may or may not be used. I love using corn in my cooking. My other recipes can be found here, Open sandwich […]
