Definition

A school lunch, or picnic, or field trip, or childrens' party classic. Generally not prepared for family outings or road trips (where, at least in the South, packed idlis that are pre-spread with chillipowder is prefered)

Cucumber Sandwich Recipe:
Thinly slice the cucumber. Spread fresh butter on white bread (All Saints or Koshys bakeries can readily provide the necessary loaves). Prepare green chutney by grinding together dhania (mint), coriander (cilantro), and salt-to-taste. Spread chutney on buttered bread, layer the cucumbers, sanwich, and cut diagonally into triangles. There! Cucumber sandwiches...

Usage

Mummee: "Ok fine. Come have curd rice at least before sleeping..."
