Breakfast Recipes/ Sandwich Varities/ Snacks & Starters


Looks like I am posting too many sandwiches nowadays… that’s mostly because, mornings are damn hectic, my little monsters wake up along with me and i would be running crazy behind them.I try to keep the work @ kitchen to the minimum and sandwiches are real life-savers!!!Also,i love trying out new kinda sandwiches.

This sandwich was born out of inspiration from a local Iyengar bakery at Mysore.Iyengar bakeries are very popular here in Karnataka and they have few signature items which you can find surely in all the iyengar bakeries like vegetable toasts,aloo buns,khara bun,benne biscuits,kobri biscuit,khara biscuit,honey cake,vegetable puff’s,dilpasand etc..etc..In 1 such Iyengar bakery back at Mysore, i had foot long rolls stuffed with a spicy tangy mix of capsicum,onion,tomato and sev. Sev !!??Yes you heard it right. Addition of sev had taken this stuffing to completely a different level.The taste was so addictive, that i recreated them at home. Nowย  it has become a regular sandwich option at my home.You can stuff this stuffing between the bread slices as i did or between long rolls as was served at bakery. Both taste awesome.. If you are bored of bland sandwich, here is a simple,tasty,spicy sandwich…
