Family food is a collection of treasured recipes – from family members, neighbours, friends and even acquaintances – that have improved my cooking skills, but more importantly taught me life lessons like generosity and the joys of sharing.
The humble chutney sandwich is such a staple snack for most Indians – so much that few maybe fed up eating it. Most church gatherings, in particular, will have some form of this green sandwich for the hungry souls – a comforting snack that I have never shy away from. But not all chutney sandwiches are created equal, getting the green chutney right is so important! For me, it is (another precious ‘Grandma’ neighbour) Aunt Fiola’s sweet and sour green coconut chutney that ticks all the essential checkboxes for creating the perfect chutney sandwich.
