As I mentioned yesterday, I would love to make snacks with bread and so for today’s post I made an open sandwich with paneer again. But this time I slightly changed the filling recipe so that no one gets bored. This can be either made in oven or made on stove top. As making it in oven is easier, I baked the sandwiches.

For the second day of Party Pleaser, I selected one of my favourite snack from my childhood. When I hear the word party, my brain starts thinking about bread based recipes. I don’t know why, but bread dominates all the other recipes. When I was in high school, my brother was in college and he used to bring home his friends. My mum never allowed us to take friends for party to hotels. They need to be invited home and she used to prepare varieties of dishes for them. So there were so many fans of my mum’s food among our friends. There were two dishes which was hot favourite among them. Bread cutlet and bread sandwich were often made. Even three or four huge packs of Modern Bread was not sufficient for all. She used to make a spicy potato filling for both the cutlet and sandwich. Cutlet was deep fried whereas sandwich was made in a sandwich toast with generous amounts of dalda. I still remember the flavour of those. But I don’t prepare them like mum as I don’t want to add calories to my diet. So I really miss those cutlets and sandwiches.
I think I have got blogger’s block. When ever I sit before my PC, I am at loss of words. I couldn’t write a single post for the blog. But I can’t keep this for long. I really need to get back to blogging regularly. I am also spending too much of time on my e Book. I didn’t know that publishing an e Book can be this daunting. But still I miss you all a lot. So today I decided to post about Kanjeepuram idli. Right from the shape to texture and taste, it is definitely different from the usual idli. These are served as prasadham in Kanjeepuram temple and that is why the name. As parboiled rice is not used in making prasadham, raw rice is used for this recipe. These are cylindrical in shape and are very spicy. They taste absolutely delicious with coconut chutney.
For the second day of the festivals across globe in Blogging Marathon, I chose to do a traditional Mexican bread made during the Day of the dead. The tradition of celebrating day of the dead dates back to Pre Columbian times. Day of the dead is celebrated for three days in MExico starting from October 31st to November 2nd. Families remember departed souls with love and the family altars are decorated with photos, remembered one’s favourite food, flowers and sugar skulls. Pan de muerto is made to resemble bones and skulls and is enjoyed with a cup of hot cocoa. To know more about this festival, read this article.
This is the final post for the Blogger Tuesday series I am doing at the Home Baker’s Guild. While I was thinking about recipes to try for the final post, I was totally confused with so many ideas flooding through my head. Finally I decided to do an easy breezy quick bread and that too a savoury one. I saw a recipe using onions and poppy seeds on Chow. I was quite fascinated on seeing the photo of the bread. So I adapted the recipe and made it as an eggless version today. Recently I bought a loaf pan which was huge compared to the small loaf tins I had earlier. It measures 9 1/2 ” * 5″ and even the recipe suggested using the same sized pan. As I wanted to see how the loaf turned out, I baked the bread in that tin. The loaf was not very high and the slices turned out to be rectangles rather than squares. The crust was so crispy and the crumb was very soft. The flavour of caramelized onions, poppy seeds and spinach was fantastic. I also used chopped green chillies to make it more spicier. All of us just loved the bread. This bread can also be toasted and served along with sauce or dip. You can also make sandwiches using these slices. There are so many options to make this into a hearty breakfast.
I was supposed to be talking of alphabet S today, but I am still at R. Will share the reason at the end of the post. Coming to R, I chose to do a pastry from Russia. Russia, officially Russian Federation, is the largest country in the world which covers 1/8 th of the earth’s inhibited area. It is in Northern Eurasia. It shares its boundaries with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kazhkhstan, China, Mongolia and Norht Korea. It also shares its maritime borders with Japan and US state of Alaska (WIKI). I am running out of options for cookies from other countries. Any recipe I see, looks so much like a previous cookie I made and I didn’t want to repeat them. So I went in search of pastries.

The very first time I had a taste of Pav Bhaji was in Mumbai nearly 15 years back. When we went on an excursion, we were taken to a beach which had so many fast food stalls with large tawa filled with the bhaji mixture on the sides. It was fun to watch them preparing pav bhaji. I liked the spicy combination of the bhaji with butter toasted pav buns with a dash of lemon and some onions. Yumm is the word. Pav Bhaji is the famous Maharashtrian street food. Bhaji is the spicy gravy made with vegeables while pav is the bread rolls. According to Wiki, pav or pau or pao is the portuguese word for bread. usually pav buns are found in all stores. So just by preparing the bhaji, you can have a taste of the delicious street food at home.
