Sandwich with delicious yogurt spread
You are going whaat, aren't you? But this yogurt cheese spread is delicious. It is even better when made like a toasted cheese sandwich. I had eaten something of this type several years back. I recreated this using a few versions found here and there. The yogurt does not disintegrate, if you are worried. It is almost like cream cheese and of course, so good for you.
Sandwiches with yogurt spread-6 sandwiches
1 cup low-fat yogurt, strained well for several hours
1/2 a medium onion, finely chopped
1-2 T cilantro or herbs of your choice
2-3 green chilies, finely chopped
1-2 tsp mint chutney(optional)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp paprika
Mix all the above. Prepare a tadka of 1 tsp cumin seeds and 1/2 tsp mustard seeds in 1/4 tsp oil. Add to the yogurt mixture.
12 slices of bread (normal sliced bread is fine)
Butter, for toasting (optional)
Spread the yogurt mixture on six slices and cover with the remaining slices. Butter the sandwiches on the outside, if needed. Toast in a skillet or in a sandwich maker.
The spread is full of Indian flavors. But you can almost add any flavors to it. It is a light, delicious snack.
