Strawberry and Banana Sandwich ...

Our friends from Brussels stayed with us during summer and their little dear Neha was coming to India for the first time. Both sides were little concerned as to how she would like to play with two boys and how she would take to Indian food. Kids indeed surprised us because it was instant friendship and they got along so well. Food also was an interesting exchange where my twins started to eat Banana sandwiches and Neha had Poori everyday. So this is a recipe which was a contribution from her . 'Boys have added several other things and tried several versions and finally we have sort of standardised to this one. I did a small variation this time. I used Malabar Plantains instead of the regular ones . That is another favourite with my kids. Sliced Plantains toasted in dollops of ghee or butter. They taste delicious and is a common snack in kerela.


You will need :
2 slices of sandwich bread ( I used Whole wheat bread)
2 tsp softened butter
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 banana sliced
4 to 5 strawberries sliced
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp jam of your choice ( I used Apricot jelly)
1 Tbsp choco chips

1. Butter both the breads ...



2. Slice the banana and toast them in a griddle ...Add a small dollop of butter...





3. Cook till they are golden brown.






4. Now sprinkle the choco chips for the first layer.





5. Place the toasted banana ...


6. Arrange the sliced strawberries on top of the Banana slices.

7. Spread the second bread with one layer of Apricot jelly. Next mix honey and peanut butter together and spread over the Apricot jelly.

8.Sandwich both the slices and place it on a griddle and toast for few mins on both sides till crisp and browned.



9.Banana and strawberry sandwich served.....





Verdict : It is something even adults will enjoy. The melted chocochip with strawberry and banana is surely delicious . It is also a healthy snack which can be fixed instantly.
