Cheese Onion Sandwich Recipe / Cheese Onion Sandwich spread Recipe


Cheese Onion Sandwich was introduced to me while I was in U.K, I use to stock up this sandwich spread all the time in my refrigerator from TESCO and like to have it with brown bread or white bread during my tea time. Most of the time when we happen to travel, this would be my breakfast, recalling call my beautiful memories when I was in U.K.

Cheese Onion Sandwich spread can be prepared in required amount and can be refrigerated so that it stays fresh for 4 days. Apart from bread this spread can be served with chapathi and tortilla also.

Cheese Onion Sandwich spread has creamy and little tangy flavor, also the crunchiness of onions balances well with cheese. Red cheese also be induced, but since I don’t have red cheese I have skipped it. A perfect breakfast or a snack box recipe for kids. Let me share the recipe…

Idiyappam / String hoppers            


Idiyappam / String Hoppers is one of the common breakfast or dinner among all south Indian families. When it comes to veg, Idiyappam goes out well with Vegetable stew and with egg it goes out well with Muttai curry or egg roast and with non-veg it goes out well with Paya (lamb Leg Curry) or Chicken kurma or any stew or Chicken salna. Most commonly it is served with grated coconut and sugar or Coconut milk and sugar for babies above 8 months. Also Idiyappam is one of my all-time favorite food with grated coconut and sugar for breakfast and with lamb leg curry or Paya for dinner. Let me share the recipe…

After couple of weeks, taking to Fiesta Friday #146 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.


  • Rice flour – 2 cups
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Hot boiling water – 4 cups

Making of Idiyappam / String Hoppers –


  • Boil the water, make sure that water should be boiled well (until you get bubbles) otherwise idiyappam would not be soft.
  • Take the rice flour and salt in a mixing bowl, pour the boiling water little by little and start kneading the dough with a flat ladle.
  • The consistency is very important in this recipe – make sure it should be too watery or too thick.
  • Grease your idiyappam with oil, take a small portion of the small dough and drop it to the idiyappam press, gently give a press and check for the flow, if it’s hard to press, pour little boiling water and knead the dough again.
  • Pour water in the steamer or idly pot and heat until the water starts boiling.
  • Gently press idiyappam over the steamer plate and steam it until it’s cooked.
  • Once its cooked, remove from fire and transfer it to bowl.

Serve hot with Paya (lamb leg curry) or vegetable stew or chicken stew or muttai curry /Egg gravy.
