The quantities you would need depend on how many grilled cheese sandwiches you want to make.

Patak's chile relish is available in Indian grocery stores.


For each sandwich, use a teaspoon of chile relish and a teaspoon of pesto. Mince the chili pieces in the relish. Spead the minced relish and pesto as shown in the picture.

Step 1 Step 2

Add a layer of thinly sliced cheese as shown. Place the slices with pesto on top of the slices with the relish. Add a thin layer of margarine to one side of the sandwiches as shown.

Step 3 Step 4

Heat a griddle or a pan on high heat. When the griddle is very hot, carefully place the sandwiches on the griddle (margarined side down). Add a thin layer of margarine on the top side. Cover the sandwiches with aluminum foil and lower the heat. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes and turn the sandwiches.

Step 5 Step 6

Cover and cook the other side for 3 to 4 minutes on low heat. Check if the cheese has melted. If it hasn't, cook for a couple more minutes.

Serve hot with cucumber pickles.
