To make Ribbon sandwich, spread butter, chutney, ketchup and fill a moist filling on one slice of bread and then cover with another bread slice. Press them firmly. Then wrap them in a damp cloth and chill for 2-3 hours. The moist filling helps to hold the slices together. Before serving cut the sandwich lengthwise. Arrange on the platter and serve.
You can make them with different types of fillings and in different layers, all stacked together.
