Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients: for 4 sandwiches
  • 1 Avocado cut into thin slices
  • 1/2 cup mint chutney
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 medium to large onion cut into thin slices
  • 1 red pepper cut into thin slices
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Panini style bread
  • little bit butter (optional)

Smother the Avocado slices in chutney and lemon juice, keep aside. Heat a tsp of oil in a pan and saute the red pepper and onion slices till they caramelize. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well.

That's it - make a sandwich with the panini bread slices, about 1 tbsp of the onion-pepper mixture and 2-3 slices of chutnified avocado.

Toast the sandwich in a pan with or without butter till the bread becomes golden brown.
