Eggs – oh, let me count the ways…there are many sandwiches you can make with eggs. You can also add eggs to other sandwiches to enhance taste, make the sandwich heartier and give it protein. For example add a fried egg to a chutney sandwich.
Egg Salad– The standard recipe uses only mayonnaise but tweak it to your taste with different herbs and spices, add different vegetables and your meal is complete.
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons prepared Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2 red onion, minced
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of sugar
Other veggies you can add:
Bell Pepper-any colour
Tomatoes — finely chopped
- Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and boil for 3 minutes covered. Remove from hot water after 5 minutes and let cool. Peel and chop.
- Combine the egg, mayonnaise, chilli powder and vegetables of your choice. Blend well with a fork so eggs are well coated with all the ingredients.
- Add crisp iceberg lettuce to the egg salad sandwich.
Paneer — this versatile ingredient is a boon for vegetarians. Paneer burji, sliced paneer with tomatoes and basil, paneer salad are a few appetizing fillings. Tofu can also be substituted for paneer.

¼ cup finely chopped celery
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Dash of dried oregano
Dash of sugar
2 tsp chopped parsley
