It’s been a while since I last blogged. I had a lot of things going around, which included shopping gifts for our relatives in India. It had been a year and a half since we last visited. We also visited London, for my Brother in law’s daughter’s christening. I also happen to be her Godmother, so I wanted to meet that little bundle of joy. Such a sweet munchkin she is!! Miss her already 🙁
After a lot of thought and weighing out the pros and cons, I switched to a self hosted site. Not knowing what I was getting myself into. There are lot of issues yet to be resolved, it’s like a never-ending chore. Amidst my vacation, with practically no time for the blog settings, it felt like forever!! I’ve missed all your posts and hope to catch up soon 🙂
Wow , it’s extremely humid here in Mumbai, and the change in weather is quite exhausting.. I just hope the Rain God’s are generous with the monsoons this time here!
Today I have a very simple and quick snack to share with you guys! Cream cheese sandwiches with a twist of sweet chilli sauce in it. I love that sauce, and love the subtle flavor it lends to these sandwiches along with the crunch from the veggies for some texture. These also are a great snack/appetizer to serve at a party, I assure you these will be gone in no time. For a healthier version, simple replace cream cheese with Greek yogurt/hung curd. If you don’t mind the calories, use mayonnaise instead :p
4 bread slices
4 oz/ 113 grams cream cheese
3 tablespoons finely chopped bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped carrot
2 tablespoon finely shredded red cabbage
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro ( dhania leaves) / parsley
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce ( substitute with any hot sauce + honey )
salt and pepper to season ( use salt sparingly as cream cheese already has salt)
Cherry tomatoes & mint leaves , for garnish ( optional )
- In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients. Whisk out the cream cheese first making sure there are no lumps, then mix in the veggies, sweet chilli sauce, seasonings. Mix till well combined.
- Spread a thick layer of this prepared spread on one side of the bread, cover with the other slice. Cut into desired shapes.
