  1. Hi dassana,
    I tried these sandwiches today and I really liked them for their simplicity as well as taste. It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble and pack them. The combo of plain bread and amul butter tasted so good. And also black pepper.
    Since I had to pack them for 8 hours duration, I didn’t add tomato as I thought they would get sullen. Will cucumber stay good for that long?
    Since I skipped veggies, we had the sandwiches with ketchup but they still tasted very nice.
    Thank you.5 stars

    1. thank you ruchi. in 8 hours cucumber and tomato will soften and taste different too. whenever we travel, i do make tomato-cucumber sandwiches, but we have them in about 4 hours. as you mentioned bread, butter with some black pepper also tastes good. sometimes i just make bread, butter with some black pepper and chaat masala and this also tastes good.
