Doha-based Kajal Saini's fun take on the humble cheese-chutney sandwich has given the dish a spectacular facelift.
IMAGE: When Kajal Saini shared a pic of her slipper-shaped sandwiches, little did she know that the dish would be so well-received.
The pic has now turned into a meme with people reminiscing about the times their parents warned them saying 'Chappal khaoge'.

- 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.
