Day; 17
Theme : One Category – Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme – Sandwiches with a Twist

Every time we have a Mega Marathon , I want to buy a book related to the theme. Even though we get practically everything online, we really do not need to buy these books, but collecting Cookery Books is my passion. So for Cooking Carnival I went around looking for a interesting book on sandwiches. Apart from our few indian authors all I could get was non veg stuff. Finally I got a book by Nita Mehta which is on Burger and Sandwiches. The book has some interesting sandwiches but I picked these Sandwich Cases from it. I made some changes to suit my taste.


These cases with sprouts and tamarind tasted mind blowing. In fact They reminded me of the Delhi streets where we get these spicy sprouts. And these cases , they are so versatile , just perfect for a party. They can be made in advance and different fillings could be used. Even the oil mixture can be made with different herbs. Truly a recipe worth trying.
Sandwich Cases

1 loaf

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
Pinch salt
Pinch coarsely ground pepper


1/4 cup pomogranate pearls
1/2 cup Moong sprouts, boiled with salt
2 tbsp Imli chutney
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 green chilly finely chopped
Point and coriander leaves finely chopped
Salt to taste

Getting the cases ready

Mix olive oil, coriander leaves, salt and pepper.
Try the crusts from bread.
Cut a bread loaf into 4″ thick slices .
I further cut it into two .
Scoop out centre from each bread, thus making it into a canapé or case.
Brush these cases with the prepared oil mixture .
Place on a baking tray, bake for 15 minutes at 180 deg , the cases should be nice and golden.


Mix all ingredients under filling.

Assembling the cases

Spoon the filling into the baked cases and serve immediately.
