Take pau bhaji bun and cut from the centre. Apply mint chutney to one half, and tamarind paste to the other half. Place a veg or non-veg cutlet and top it up with lettuce leaves, tomato slice and onion rings. Cover the burger with other half of the bun and grill. You can skip the grilling step.
Cut a slice of zucchini, take a non-stick grill pan, heat olive oil and add garlic to it. Once the garlic turns brown, place the zucchini on it. After it turns brown, let it cool. Place a slice of feta cheese, lettuce leaves and mint leave on the zucchini and roll it over. Place a toothpick on it and serve.
Club sandwiches are easy and quick to make. Cut a slice of bread into four pieces. Place them one above the other and add sliced ham, lettuce leaves, sliced cucumber, grated cheese and onion rings. You can grill the sandwich or bake for 10 minutes. Stick a cherry tomato or olive in a toothpick and place it inside the sandwich to garnish before you serve.
Bite into Bruschetta
In a bowl, toss together the tomatoes, basil, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Mix in the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper. Slice the bread into individual pieces and spoon the mixture on top. You can add grated cheese and bake or serve this dish as is.
