Some fillings are even Indian dishes which have been altered to go between bread.
Although they may seem complicated, they are actually relatively simple.
These recipe guides will help ensure that sandwich making will be easy and the result will be a tasty snack. Here are 10 Indian sandwich recipes to enjoy. Bombay Vegetable Grilled Sandwich
A grilled sandwich is delicious because the filling is warmer and the slight crunch of the bread adds a whole new level of texture.
A Bombay vegetable sandwich is a great option to try as it combines multiple vegetables into one meal.
As a result, there is a range of flavours and textures especially combined with the array of spices.
This snack is famous throughout India and is one of the menu options at many sandwich stalls. Ingredients 2 potatoes, boiled and sliced 1 medium cucumber, sliced ½ green bell pepper, sliced 2 small tomatoes, sliced 1 cup of grated cheese (optional) For the Sandwich Masala ½ tsp dry mango powder For the Chutney 1 cup of mint leaves 1 cup of coriander 1½ tsp lemon juice Method For the masala, dry roast the whole spices on low heat, stirring constantly. When fragrant, remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely. Place the cooled spices into the grinder along with the salt and mango powder. Grind into a fine powder and set aside. Make the chutney by taking all the ingredients and placing into a blender with a little water and blend into a smooth paste. Make the sandwich by heating a griddle pan. As it is heating, assemble the sandwich. Take three slices of bread and spread butter and chutney on each slice. Assemble in this order: potato, cucumber, onion, second bread slice, green pepper, tomato and cheese. Sprinkle the sandwich masala on each vegetable layer. Close with the third bread slice. Carefully, place the sandwich on the griddle pan and grill until it becomes golden brown and crispy. Gently flip it over and grill the other side. Once both sides are golden, place on a plate and slice into half. Repeat the process with the rest of the sandwiches.
This recipe was inspired by Spice up the Curry . Chilli Cheese Sandwich
The cheese toastie is a popular choice when it comes to sandwiches and this chilli cheese recipe is a delicious variation.
The mixture of gooey cheese along with the subtle hints of spice is a delicious combination as the mild cheese has an injection of flavour.
Butter is spread on the outside of the bread. This crisps up the bread but it also prevents the cheese from becoming congealed.
You can use whatever cheese you prefer. But no matter what, the result is a delicious and filling snack which can be enjoyed at any time. Ingredients A ½ cup of cheese, grated A ½ cup of bell peppers, chopped 1 green chilli, finely chopped 2 tbsp coriander leaves ¼ tsp black pepper powder A ¼ cup of onions, finely chopped 4 slices of bread ¼ tsp red chilli flakes Butter, to spread on the bread 3 tbsp green chutney Salt, to taste Method Place half of the cheese into a bowl. Add the bell peppers, onion, green chillies and coriander. Mix then add salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Mix well then set aside. Heat a griddle pan on medium heat. As it heats up, apply the butter on the bread slices, then spread the chutney on both slices. On one slice, spoon on the cheese and pepper mixture, sprinkle a little cheese on top, then close with the other slice. Apply butter on the top surface of the bread, then place buttered side down into the pan and cook until it becomes crisp. Apply butter on the other slice of bread then gently flip over. Once both sides are crispy, remove from the pan and place on a plate. Cut into half then serve.
This recipe was inspired by Spice up the Curry . Tandoori Chicken Sandwich
Tandoori chicken is considered to be a classic within Indian cuisine. As a sandwich, it is an enjoyable treat.

Making the ordinary extraordinary

Chef Amal CA, of the Le Meridien, Kochi takes the regular dishes of the Kerala cuisine and makes all sorts of tasty innovations

By Shevlin Sebastian
On most mornings, when Amal CA, Chef De Cuisine — F&B Production, at the Le Meridien, Kochi, awakens, he has a recurring thought: ‘What can I make something new today?’
Thus, on a recent morning, at the kitchen of the hotel, he got into full experimental mode. And the first dish that he made had fried pearlspot, and spread over it was a marinated mix. It consisted of raw mango, shallots, garlic, ginger, curry leaf and a dash of kandhari (chillies). “This is a healthy combination,” says Amal. “And because it is the mango season, I wanted to add a touch of the fruit.”
At one side of the plate, there is a stretch of rice, almost like a pathway. The Kaima rice, which is usually grown in Wayanad, is an aromatic, non-basmati rice. To this, Amal had added air-dried curry leaf to give it a greenish tinge. Thereafter, he added a vegetable salad, consisting of strips of carrot and onions, with a dash of lemon.
“ I ensure that all my dishes have proteins, carbohydrates and fibre,” he says. So, in this dish, the pearlspot provided the proteins, carbohydrates came from the kaima rice and the fibre was got from the vegetables.
His next dish seems like the typical tapioca (kappa) and fish curry. But it is quite different, because for one, the kappa is creamy and milky. There are two fillets of pearlspot with a layer of masala in between, which has kokum and coconut. Once again, there are vegetables on one side.
The third dish has been inspired by a Syrian Christian dish called ‘chemeen koonthal idiyappam’. So, in a circle on the edge of the plate are the pidis (rice dumplings) but soaked in a yellow coconut gravy. In the middle is the traditional idiyappam (rice noodles), but instead of the usual grated coconut, there are prawns and squids. Again, there is a salad, at one corner, with a small addition: a small bowl of flavoured coconut milk, which you can add to the idiyappam.
All three dishes are sumptuous in taste. You get gripped by the various spices, and the combinations clearly show that Amal has a natural talent and feel for cooking.
As he beams, Amal says, “I want to make dishes which do not lose its authentic taste. It should also be a mind-blowing experience. Many guests have told me, ‘This is the first time I have ever eaten something like this’.”
The chef, who grew up in Kothamangalam, got attracted to cooking at a very early age. “Both my parents were interested in cooking, as well as a few uncles,” says Amal. “But the biggest inspiration has been my mother, Indira. We are three boys and had no sisters. From childhood, we would help our mother in the kitchen.”
Indira would show the boys how to make one appam and then would tell the boys to make the rest. “That was how we learned,” he says. “She would always tell us to make food in our own style.”
And Amal learnt to implement it early. Since he was plump, his mother would tell him to eat one egg, while his brothers had two. “So I would add a lot of onions, and chillies, to bulk up my omelette, so that it seemed I was having two eggs,” he says, with a smile.

Italian is loved but most Europeans favour own country’s food, survey finds | World news

Home / FOOD / Italian is loved but most Europeans favour own country’s food, survey finds | World news Italian is loved but most Europeans favour own country’s food, survey finds | World news 5 hours ago FOOD
Such is Europe’s love affair with food that when European prime ministers and presidents come to make their big decisions at EU summits in Brussels, there is almost always a plate of something sumptuous in front of them.
But should there be any doubt about the scale of the challenge facing the EU’s in-house chefs, a YouGov-Cambridge survey of attitudes in eight major European countries has confirmed that little divides the continent more than the question: what makes a good meal?
The project is a new annual survey of global attitudes in 23 of the world’s biggest countries, covering almost 5 billion people.
The 2019 survey canvassed 25,325 people online across much of Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia in February and March.
Questions about populist attitudes and convictions were inserted in order to derive a “populist cohort”, and discover what this group of people think about major world issues from immigration to vaccination, social media and globalisation.
The full methodology can be found here.
The short answer is: if in doubt, go Italian. It is universally beloved. But in a juicy revelation sure to add spice to Franco-Italian relations, while 73% of French people profess to liking Italian food, only 23% of Italians like to eat French cuisine.
A similar cultural mismatch can be found in British and Spanish tastes. The British are partial to tapas, as the proliferation of outlets in the UK will attest. In the survey, 48% of British people say they like Spanish food. But the Spaniards are not so keen on fish and chips, with just 19% professing an appreciation of the joys of battered cod.
In general, when it comes to food, people appear happiest with their own national nosh (a notable exception: Brits narrowly favour Italian over their own seaside staple, with or without mushy peas).
It has been previously calculated that the people of France spend more time than anyone else eating meals with others: two hours and 22 minutes a day on average. And when they do, a full 86% like their national cooking.
But that doesn’t mean they can’t see beyond the jus on a magret de canard . Half of respondents (51%) say they enjoy Chinese cuisine and 40% like food from Morocco, a former French colony.
The UK might be leaving the EU, but 80% say they like Italian food, nearly half (46%) approve of the Greek style and 41% like French.

Indian food curries favour with 69% of Britons and 75% say they like Chinese food. Almost half (46%) like Thai while about 30% enjoy Caribbean, Cajun and Turkish food.
But while most Europeans are happy eating their own food, they are distinctly less excited about their own capital cities.
Familiarity, it seems, breeds contempt. Asked to choose which city they thought of as the single most exciting to visit, 3% of Italians chose Rome, the same proportion of Britons chose London, while just 4% of French people opted for Paris.
These nationalities would much prefer a bite of the Big Apple, with 28% of Italians, 23% of Britons and 20% of French respondents opting for New York, the clear winner in almost every European nation surveyed.
Tokyo has also captured the imagination of many Europeans; it was the second choice of Italian, Spanish, Danish and British respondents and the first choice for Swedes, 17% of whom named it as their preferred destination.
The YouGov survey also asked people what they thought about goods made in various countries. While more than half of those asked in the British sample (56%) say they think more positively about a product “made in Britain”, just 30% of the French sample felt the same.
“Made in Germany” elicited the most positive response from survey samples; but “made in China” found little approval, with fewer than 10% of respondents saying they thought more positively about a product if it had come from the world’s biggest economy.
When it comes to cultural output, the US is still out in front. Europeans, it seems, cannot get enough of American television series and box sets. More than 70% of Spaniards and Swedes watch US shows at least once a week. More than half do so in every other European country in the sample other than France, where it was 37%.
Vive l’exception culturelle!

Staff management was poor- The staff were either overworked or not managed well. This compromised on good customer service. We always felt rushed and we’re not given all required information. Cleanliness- being a luxury hotel and paying more than $1000 a night, you would expect clean towels and linens. From the refreshment towels given during check in to bath towels, were all stained. Disgusting. Misleading Marketing- All the pictures you see online or on Instagram is nothing like the real deal. This resort is located amongst a housing estate nestled within a few tress. It is not a forest like feel with overflowing greeneries. And drones are only allowed to be flown if you happen to be a popular person on social media. So leave the hope of getting amazing photos as seem in any advertising. Overall it’s definitely NOT WORTH THE $$$$. If you want to stay in an amazing luxury resort in Phuket try Sri Panwa.
Lived the food at this hotel. They cater to many cuisines with specialised chefs. This ensures the food tasted authentic. My husband and I had Indian for dinner and the chef did amazing. Coming from Melbourne where we get a variety of international cuisines, I can safely say that food is not a problem here.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: 8 Food Businesses to Support at the Farmers Market

bini_amanda_lynn_photography.jpg
For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we have compiled a list of Asian Pacific American-owned food businesses that are part of CUESA’s farmers market community. Enjoy locally made miso, kimchi, momos, and other delicious handcrafted products, while supporting food businesses owned by Asian and Pacific Islands Americans who are making our food more diverse, healthy, and delicious.
Aedan Fermented Foods
Following the 2011 earthquake in her home country of Japan, Mariko Grady started selling her homemade miso to friends to raise money for the victims. Through Aedan Fermented, she now brings the traditions of healthy and flavorful Japanese cuisine to the table with fermented foods such as miso, koji, and amazake. Must-try at the market: While their country miso is widely popular among market goers and chefs, their shio koji (a living fungus that is used to ferment soybeans and potatoes for sake, among other things) imparts a rich savory flavor to every dish. It can be used in place of salt in dishes or sauces, giving you an umami-rich way to lower the sodium content. Where to find them: Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays
Bini’s Kitchen
An immigrant from Kathmandu and a participant in La Cocina’s food business incubator program, Bini Pradhan prides herself in being the only Nepalese caterer in San Francisco. Through her momos (Nepalese dumplings), Bini recalls not only the foods of her upbringing, but also the feeling of community and celebration during countless gatherings with her parents, siblings, and friends. Must-try at the market: The momos, of course! Available filled with turkey or vegetables, and served with a spicy tomato cilantro sauce. Where to find them: Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays
Hodo
As a child in Vietnam, Minh Tsai took morning strolls with his grandpa to the neighborhood tofu shack. The freshness and artisan-quality of the soymilk, tofu, and yuba of his childhood eluded Minh for many years and ultimately led him to leave a finance career to found Hodo in 2004. Hodo now supplies tofu to Chipotle nationwide, sweetgreen, and notable Bay Area restaurants including The Slanted Door, State Bird Provisions, The Progress, SHED Cafe at Healdsburg Shed, and Mister Jiu’s. Must-try at the market: One of Hodo’s most popular products is their Sesame Yuba Noodles, which are made from the protein-packed skin that forms on the surface of soy milk when making tofu. They’re delicious hot added to a stir-fry, and equally good cold right out of the box for a quick meal. Where to find them: Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays (Photo: Jen Siska)
La Vie Wellness
Since 1995, yoga enthusiast Yeyen Gunawan has been crafting probiotic juices, wellness beverages, and superfood snacks as La Vie.

Since 2005, she has been sharing what she discovered through her line of La Vie Wellness drinks and juice cleanses. A long-time believer in the importance of access to local and fresh foods, she sells her products at farmers markets and local grocery stores throughout the Bay Area.

Where to find them: Jack London Square Farmers Market on Sundays (Photo: La Vie Wellness)
Namu
The Lee brothers—Dennis, Daniel, and David—founded Namu in December 2006 with the intention of serving contemporary California cuisine with an Asian flair. The Lees felt the contemporary American restaurant world lacked diversity and set out to serve food they loved and were inspired by. Namu now offers vegan and vegetarian options on their menu as a way to introduce another perspective on food for plant-based eaters. They source directly from farmer Kristyn Leach of Namu Farm , who specializes in vegetables and herbs that are traditional to Korean cuisine.

This dish includes housemade vegetarian kimchee, mung bean sprout, white rice, toasted seaweed, and daily pickle and your choice of chicken or tofu. Where to find them: Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays
Roti
The Malik brothers worked with Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods in the farmers market for more than 10 years, doing almost 25 farmers markets per week for Sukhi’s. During their market days, the brothers had realized that customers are familiar with Indian food, but not with Pakistani cuisine. The Malik brothers founded Roti in 2017 to introduce Pakistani food in farmer markets. Directly from Punjab Pakistan, Roti offers authentic Pakistani vegan cuisine using generations-old family recipes, regional spices, and local ingredients. Must-try at the market: If you had naan before, try their stuffed paratha, which is essentially stuffed flatbread with spinach. Their chutney sauces are also great with the parathas! Where to find them: Mission Community Market on Thursdays
Volcano Kimchi
Aruna was born in South Korea and grew up in a Buddhist monastery where homegrown vegetables were at the heart of every meal.

Rajasthan: A Seed Story

By Adam Alexander Sustainable Food Trust May 3, 2019 Much of Rajasthan is semi- or hyper-arid and home to a large number of well-adapted local varieties of cash crops that farmers have been saving seed from, for generations. Adam Alexander, who calls himself a ‘seed detective’, travels across the state to see how this tradition is faring and just how secure these commercially and culturally important varieties are. Being bounced about in the back of an ancient open jeep was a small price to pay for a heart-warming discovery I was shortly to make. January may well be mid-winter in southern Rajasthan, but the temperature is normally redolent of a pleasant summer’s day at home in south Wales. This winter was different. There had been a succession of unexpected night frosts. This had proven a challenge for many of the small subsistence farmers I had been meeting on my journey through the state. The genetic diversity of edible crops is being lost at an alarming rate globally. In my work, growing and saving seeds of rare and endangered cash crops, I was keen to gain an understanding of the challenges and realities for an expanding cohort of horticulturalists that were continuing a traditional, low-input sustainable model of cultivation and responding to an increasing demand for organically grown produce. This is how I found myself at the gate of a small compound about 40 kilometres north of Jodhpur, in gently undulating countryside near the town of Mathania, centre of a region famous throughout India for its prized chillies. The Mathania chilli has been highly valued for its fine culinary qualities; floral and aromatic when first cut, they are large, slender fruit with more spice than bald heat. A staple of Rajasthan cuisine for generations, it is still an important crop for those few farmers who are able to grow them despite a dramatically diminishing aquifer. However, what is now being cultivated is but a pale imitation of the original fruit. On my travels, everyone I spoke to about this famous chilli grumbled about it having changed in the last twenty years or so. Farmers, due to problems with irrigation and low yields, have been switching from their own saved seed to modern cultivars, mostly F1 hybrids, which give greater yields, but perversely require more water, are more sensitive to low temperatures and genetically narrower than the native varietal. Chillies easily cross-pollinate so the introduction of new varieties into a farming system, where the average holding is about 20 acres, has meant that the Mathania now consists mostly of introduced genetic material, according to the plant scientists I met at the Agricultural Research Station in Bikaner , which is at the forefront of improving crop varieties that can grow in semi- and hyper-arid environments. Sellers in local markets and every farmer I spoke to about this chilli, all said the same thing: what is being sold as a Mathania doesn’t have the same culinary traits as the open-pollinated plant. If true, this was a story that had become familiar to me over many years of tracking down rare and endangered local varieties that are intrinsic to native food cultures. Locally developed varieties, with their well-adapted traits, thrive in their home ground, grown from genetically distinct seeds that have been saved by generations of farming families, are replaced by modern cultivars that offer improved yields and better prices. It is entirely understandable that farmers who, for the most part, are barely able to scrape a living from the land, should want to improve their prospects with new varieties. I found that once a farmer switches to a modern cultivar, they stop growing and saving seed from their own local varieties as they no longer perceive the need to do so. After just two or three years, the genetic diversity and unique qualities of those local crops is lost for ever. I was welcomed by the diminutive Mrs Devi into her Mathania home, a coral of round, white-painted cob rooms set in an immaculate earth courtyard. The wife of a share-cropper with about 20 acres of land, I was visiting her to find out more about what local varieties of crops – if any – were still being grown in the region. We ate chapatis made from her own landrace millet and a curry of yoghurt from the milk of her heavenly Rajasthani sheep, flavoured with seeds from nearby wild Khejri – the sacred desert tree Prosopis cineraria , endemic to Rajasthan cultural life and a hugely important source of fodder, firewood, fencing, joinery timber and protein. I couldn’t help noticing in a corner of the compound a small pile of chillies, harvested from a tiny plot where a dozen or so plants grew. My guide Pritam Singh, also a farmer, was beside himself. He needed just one sniff, one bite and with a smile that would have lightened up the darkest night, declared that this chilli tasted and smelled of his childhood. This was the real thing. I too, sniffed and ate – scrumptious! Mrs Devi kindly gave me a small handful of seeds from this year’s crop. She had been growing her chillies for as long as she could remember, as had her mother before. There were no other chillies being grown for miles around. I believed I had stumbled across something all the experts had told me was extinct. This was just one of a number of inspiring encounters that I had with farmers throughout Rajasthan. I had been told by Dr Shekhawat, Head of Plant Breeding and Genetics at Swami Keshwanand Rajasthan Agricultural University in Bikaner – who had bred one of India’s most widely grown cultivars of chickpea – of his despair over the loss of genetic diversity of this key arable crop in Rajasthan. He could find no evidence of any of the 45 local landraces held in the gene bank in Jodhpur still under cultivation. That, of course, isn’t to say that, like the Mathania chilli, they aren’t still being grown. I found a landrace chickpea in the southern Kota region. Farmers would proudly show me their supplies of ‘desi'(‘local’) seeds. The distinctive red carrot of Rajasthan was being widely grown as was coriander for seed, a tomato called Abhilash that was fruiting well despite very cold nights when fleece was needed to protect the crops from frost. I found a local variety of turnip, Shaljum; the ubiquitous white radish, mouli; and a sensational native spinach, Palek, with oak-like leaves. I came across dry and wet-season gourds, lablab beans, peas, cumin and fenugreek being grown by families of farmers in wholly sustainable and low-input environments, all desi landraces. The pressure on farmers to apply costly urea, a synthetic chemical fertiliser, despite government subsidy, further makes the economics of agriculture challenging. These farmers, frequently share-croppers who must give as much as 50% of their income to the land-owner, are only able to scrape a living relying on large subsidies for electricity to pump water, and equipment purchases. There were two examples of farmers that I found greatly encouraging. First, a family of three brothers who shared 30 acres of land that they owned. Half the land was set aside for growing vegetables, and the rest for producing highly valued ghee from a small herd of buffalo and Indian cattle. Theirs was a system with zero external inputs. Crops were grown from their own seed and soil improvement was from manure and compost. The subsidies they received helped them to earn sufficient money, to have recently built a brick home. However, their business model was entirely based on selling their crops through middle-men. Farmers make the least return in the Rajasthani food chain. The sales and distribution system is badly in need of reform, as in the UK and the rest of the developed world, inhibiting the economic viability and sustainability of farming. Although the brothers use organic practices, they don’t call themselves organic farmers and are not selling into this expanding, higher-margin sector – a conservative mindset, the costs of accreditation and lack of ambition are factors. One of their neighbours, Shankar Shrma, somewhat younger and educated, has converted his 20 acres to certified organic horticulture and grows a mix of desi and modern cultivars. He sells through a local network into the urban centres of Jaipur and Delhi, some 6-hours’ drive away. Business is good. The challenge, for Shankar, is to supply a market which, thanks to an increasingly affluent middle-class has developed a taste for more western foods and non-traditional crops. But brassicas, lettuce, strawberries and courgettes invariably have higher water demands. When the water table is falling and there are problems of increased salinity, creating a greater consumer appetite for locally adapted crops that profit the farmer is essential. This, in great part, needs to be driven by opinion leaders who can highlight the importance, economically, culturally and environmentally of desi crops. Mrs Devi, with her desi sheep and chillies, has a family story which represents the challenges facing food production in Rajasthan. Her children are the first generation to receive a full education. Her daughter is studying medicine, one of her sons is a career soldier and her eldest son is renting more land with his father to grow arable crops. Hopefully, placing sustainable and profitable farming at the centre of agricultural policy in India means Mrs Devi will not be the last generation of custodians of the Mathania chilli.
