Today's recipe is sandwich with a curried chicken filling.During our school days there used to be a Chicken sandwich in our school canteen which had its filling in the form of curry.Waking up late to school means two riyals to school one riyal for sandwich or anything to eat and the other to buy anything for drinking.Mostly I would go for that cold Pepsi and any sandwich.
As the kids have vacation now,they get up a little late.In the meantime I prepare something for their breakfast which they like.Mostly all our neighbours have left for vacation and we are also planning to go this week.So its like finishing off things from pantry and refrigerator.Morning when checked found a packet of chicken boneless pieces so thought to make a sandwich filling.Suddenly thought to make this in a curried style but was not sure whether the kids would like.But to my surprise they finished it without any fuss.
Actually I forgot to click before giving the kids,So with the very little filling left I have made these and clicked :)

Nice looking sandwich!, we all have our school canteen food memories. :)ReplyDelete
That first paragraph really resonated... I used to love it when umma wakes up late and we could get those one or two dhs in our hands... nowadays my kids ask for not less than five! But I still give them around 3 and tell them, Ullathu kondu vaagiyaa mathi! ;) Lovely sandwich that one is, I am not surprised that they finished it off. Have a lovely vacation dear...ReplyDelete
never tried gravy stuffed sandwich... I am curious to know how the gravy sits inside being liquidReplyDelete
Yum! Some recipes make it to the blog immediately and the memories behind it makes it even more special. For me school canteen was all about chicken spring rolls! 😅 I think it was 5 bucks and we get 10 rupees pocket money. 😆ReplyDelete
