Sandwich Thattuvadai

            Yummy,yummy,yummy.That's wat i can say about this snack.Nothing more to explain about this snack.This is a very popular snack in Salem(Tamil Nadu).When ever i see this snack i start digging it till the last minute particle is there in the plate.If i prepare this snack at home myself and my hubby doesn't even need dinner.Ok let me come to recipe coz i want to tel about this recipe means i need to tel lots of story.So let me stop and go to the recipe.But one thing is sure.If we try once also,we will definetly will do again and again.Though its a easy snack but its a time consuming process,but still its really a mouth watering snack.

Ingredients :

Thattuvadai 250 gms
Onion(big) 1
Beetroot(big) 1
Carrot(big) 1
Coriander leaves 3-4 tbsp
Green chillie paste (app) 3 tbsp
Onion chutney 1/4 cup

Method :

1.Grate the beetroot and carrot.Finely chop the onion and coriander leaves.

2.Spread all the thattuvadai/papdi in plate and on one side apply the green chillie paste.

3.Now spread the carrot on the chillie paste and then spread the beetroot,onion and coriander leaves layer by layer on the thattuvadai.

4.Take another plain thattuvadai and spread the onion cutney paste and keep the thattuvadai cover the other thattuvadai were we have already applied chutneys and kept the veggies.Serve immediately and enjoy the snack.

Note :

1.For green chillie paste i just grinded green chillies and salt together.

2.Onion chutney:

onion(medium)- 4, Salt  - 1 3/4 tsp,red chillie pwdr -1 1/4 tsp, jaggery -1 tbsp,tamrind - small lemon size                          

Oil   - 4 tbsp,Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp,Asafoetida - 3 generous pinch,Curry leaves - few

Soak all these items together atleast for 10-15 mins and the grind in the mixie.Now take a kadai and season with the seasoning items given and add the grinded chutney and saute nicely for around 5mins so that raw
smell goes and then bring it to room temparture and put in a air tight container and store it in fridge.It will be good for 1 or 2 mths.We can have this chutney as a side dish for idly,dosa and chapatthi/roti too while we are on travelling.

3.I used readymade thattuvadai available in shops.Incase of preparing at home should see to that thattuvadai should not be too crispy as well as should not be too spicy.
