Chilli Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Welcome back to my sandwich mania!! I have already spoken written about my love for sandwiches in my Vegetable Sandwich and Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Sandwich posts. ( One is comfort and the other one is comfort along with decadence, if it makes any sense :) ) And now today I bring to you the very best Chilli Cheese Sandwich!

Chilli Cheese Sandwich is one of my favorite dishes at our nearby chat shop. I love cheese at the same time have an Indian tongue that craves hot and spicy flavours, Chilli cheese sandwich is one of the perfect recipes that satisfies my both cravings...
The standout thing for this Sandwich is- I have made a paste of chillis ( instead of chopping them ) before mixing with cheese as I love to enjoy my chilli - cheese flavour in every bite. I strongly suggest you not to skip this step as it makes a huge difference in the end result.

And finally the butter though used little, is what that ties it up altogether. I mean chilli, cheese and butter is a lovely combo right? So go ahead and make yourselves some wonderful Chilli Cheese Sandwiches!! Let me know how you liked them...

There you have it - The Best Chilli Cheese Sandwich!!!

Here is a little closer look...
1) If you don't have an ammi, you can use a mixer but you need to make a little large batch to make it into a smooth paste ( you can store the leftovers in the refrigerator for 2 days ) If you do have an ammi, now is the right time to use it, because this sandwich is soooo good!
2) While adding salt add carefully as the cheese will also contain salt.
3) You can use any cheese you like. Here I have used mozzarella cheese.
