Tricolor Sandwich Fritters : Happy Indian Independence Day





July 4th was celebrated as American Independence day with  fireworks,parades,cakes,barbecues,carnivals, concerts, family reunions and ceremonies.

August 15th happens to be India’s Independence day. Indians across the globe are celebrating  their 68th year of independence with joy and fervor.

At midnight of 15 August, 1947, India achieved Independence.The Indian tricolor (saffron, green and white) flag was unfurled by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, at the Red Fort of Delhi, marking the birth of world’s biggest democracy. 

Today, the flag can be seen throughout India during Independence Day celebrations being hoisted up flagpoles in ceremonies to decorating the  homes of Indian people. 


I thought this was a wonderful opportunity to make a delicious tricolor snack representing the Indian flag for all my friends who are celebrating this day.

For the orange/red layer: 

  • Tomato ketchup                  IMG_20140723_153411

For the white layer:

  • 12 Bread slices with crusts removed

For the green layer:

  • Coriander leaves 1 cup                 IMG_20140723_153341
  • Mint leaves 1 cup
  • Green chillies 2
  • salt to taste
  • dash of lemon
  • peanut butter 2 tbsp.

Grind together to form a smooth paste.


For the batter:

  • Chickpea/besan flour 3 cups          IMG_20140723_181500
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp.
  • Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp.

Mix with water to form a thick pancake batter.


Alternative batter:

Chickpea flour should be easily available in any Indian store. If you can’t get hold of it make a pancake batter with self raising flour, milk, eggs, salt and pepper.



Spread some green chutney over one slice of bread and smooth it with a butter knife. Cover it with the second slice. Spread some tomato ketchup over it and cover with the third slice. Now cut this sandwich into four equal squares.IMG_20140723_181529







Dip each mini square sandwich into the batter and deep fry in hot oil.

Serve hot.
