The pic has now turned into a meme with people reminiscing about the times their parents warned them saying 'Chappal khaoge'.

Slipper Sandwich

Serves: 2


  • 4 slices of bread, preferably white but opt for a healthier version too
  • 100 gm homemade mint chutney
  • Chilly flakes, as per taste
  • Oregano, as per taste
  • 2 slices of cheese, cut into halves
  • 4 to 8 thick slices of green cucumber, cut into halves, to create the straps of the slippers, skin intact
  • 1 red chilly, split in the centre and cut into 4-6 pieces or 2 cherry tomatoes cut into halves


  • Trim the edges off the slices of the bread and cut each into two.
    Spread a tbsp of the mint chutney over the slices and lay them out on a cutting board.
    Sprinkle some chilly flakes and oregano.
  • To assemble, starting with the bottom layer, take one half slice of bread with mint chutney.
    Place half a slice of the cheese over it.
    Press another half slice of bread, chutney side down. The sandwich is ready. 
  • Repeat the process with the other slices to get around 4 sandwiches.
  • Using a pair of scissors, trim the edges so that it resembles the sole of a slipper. Watch the video to see how to do it.
  • Place the sandwiches on a tray.
    Arrange two cucumber slices over the sandwich to resemble the straps of the slippers.
    Place a piece of the cut red chilly or cherry tomato where the slices of cucumber meet.
    Please check the pic above.
    Serve the sandwiches with chips and ketchup.
