Tried & Tasted: Appetizing fruit sandwich for your taste-buds!
The Jain Coffee House was started in 1948 by Shambhu Dayal Jain, who came to Delhi from Shikarpur in Western Uttar Pradesh. While the Jain family’s business primarily deals with the sale of grain, the sandwich corner has its own die-hard clientele. The place is pure vegetarian and does wonders with fruit. Of course, it’s white bread that’s used there. What adds to the taste is a paste or chutney of dried fruit that is spread on one of the slices. The other slice is smeared with butter. In between, you will find your choice of seasonal fruit – mango, apple, guava, chikoo (sapota), banana and so on – along with a few thin slices of cottage cheese. They add pomegranate seeds or occasionally thin slices of grapes to this, and then sprinkle a special fruit powder over it. And the final outcome is a sandwich that you’ve never had before.
