BM # 50 Week 3 Day 1
For this week my theme is American Sandwiches. These sandwiches are from a list at wiki where they are listed under American sandwiches. Now the list has 90% non veg sandwiches. It is okay to convert them into veg but difficult to substitute all ingredients to veg. , so I picked recipes which were either veg or where I could substitute them with a vegetarian option.
For the first day I have a Sandwich Wrap.
A wrap is a type of sandwich made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling. The usual flatbreads are wheat-flour tortillas, lavash, or pita; the filling usually consists of cold sliced meat, poultry, or fish accompanied by shredded lettuce, diced tomato or pico de gallo, guacamole, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, grilled onions, cheese, and a sauce, such as ranch or honey mustard.
As quoted from wiki.
So I used our humble roti, which is the wheat based tortilla, I added a lotus stem Patty, which resembled the meat color, added lettuce,diced tomatoes and cucumbers, grilled onions, cheese and mayo. The wrap turned out really delicious with the lotus stem and poppy seed roll. This is how I made the rolls
1 big stem lotus stem,
2 potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 green chilly, finely chopped
Coriander leaves, chopped
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
1/2 tsp dry mango powder
1/4 tsp Garam masala
Salt to taste
Corn flour for binding
Prepare the lotus stem.
Mash the lotus stem and boiled potatoes.
Add green chilly, garlic and ginger paste ( absolutely your choice)
Mash everything very well and add rest of the ingredients,
Make rolls and either fry them or shallow fry.
Assembling the wrap
Place a roti on a plate.
Place lettuce and in the centre.
Place the roll.
Add some tomatoes, grilled onions, cheese and mayo.
Sprinkle some salt , pepper and drizzle some mayo.
Wrap it up and enjoy.
