Chicken Tikka Sandwich Baguette

 

This is my version of an easy Chicken Tikka Sandwich Baguette. Who can resist delicious Chicken Tikka? Well this is a simplified but delicious version made into a  hearty sandwich. Crusty Italian Bread or Baguettes will be the preferred bread for this Sandwich. You need that hard crusty exterior to compliment the meaty textured filling. Soft breads will not do justice.

And do try my version of Smooth Coriander Chutney Dressing.  Give it a go. Pretty straightforward, this one!  My kids like to have the extra tikkas with the chutney.

Homemade Burger Buns

 

Home Made Burger Buns. You know they really aren’t that hard to make. Even if you are new to bread making. Most of the hassle lies in the waiting for the dough to rise. I have made these buns over a dozen times, and they have never failed. I made them in different sizes. With and without sesame seeds, because Nunu is allergic to sesame seeds. The girls like these buns freshly baked with butter too! The buns are soft and chewy with the perfect crumb.

And here’s how my Burger looks, homemade bun and all.

Murtabak Recipe with Chicken

Murtabak Recipe with Chicken

Murtabak is a pan fried folded flat bread that can be plain or stuffed with Mutton, Chicken or Egg. It is  said to have originated in Yemen, influenced by the large Indian Expatriate Community there. It is very common is Saudi Arabia too.

It is said to have been originally named “Muttabar” by the Chefs from Kerala, India – ‘Mutta’ meaning “Egg” and ‘bar’ short for “Barotta”which is a derivative of the Hindi word ‘Paratta’ (Flatbread). The name is thought to have mutated to “Muttabag” which means “Folded” in Arabic. Eventually the common name in Arab Countries became “Muttabak”, and in Asian Countries like Malaysia and Singapore, it is called “Murtabak”. In these countries it is mainly made by Indian Muslim Hawkers.

Here is a great Murtabak Recipe with Chicken to make at home. Scroll down for video on how the murtabak is assembled and fried.

Soft Fluffy Bhatura – Indian Puffed Bread using Yeast

Soft Fluffy Bhatura - Indian Puffed Bread using Yeast

Soft Fluffy Bhatura – Indian Puffed Bread using Yeast (Bhatoora)

Bhatura is Fried, Puffed Indian Flat Bread that is leavened with Yeast. The addition of an egg yolk makes it soft and fluffy. Although there are many recipes for Bhatura, this yeast based one provides a softer bread, that remains soft even after sitting a while and doesn’t absorb excess oil, rendering it greasy and unappealing. This is the original recipe, containing only all purpose flour (Maida). I shall be updating soon with various variations on the recipe using Semolina (Suji), Wheat Flour, Yoghurt, Potato and Eno fruit salt. I will post each recipe as they are perfected. Try this one to start with. Tasty Bhatura’s  are everyones favorite. I love it with Chicken Manchurian.

Aloo Tikki Burger – Potato Patties Burger Under 30 Minutes  

Did you enjoy our Home made Aloo Tikki Burger – Potato Patties Burger Under 30 Minutes  Let us know.

Notes:

  • The thorough mixing of all the ingredients into the mashed potato mixture is key to having a nice flavorful patty.
  • Make sure the water is drained from the potatoes and peas before mashing. Water content will make it difficult to mould the patties.
  • If your burger has to be reheated, remove  the buns with the veggies. Heat the patties in a pan or in the microwave and reassemble.
  • Do not reheat the veggies.
  • If you do not like raw onion it may be omitted but adds kick and crunch.
  • Picky eaters: Substitue the veggies for cheese slice and broil over the patty till melted and serve.
  • If  your patties are difficult to lift to the pan, it is likely that there is too much moisture. You could work around this by placing in the freezer for 10 minutes till set and then grilling.
  • If you like your patties spicy, add finely mixed green chillies to the mashed potato.
  • Note that you can skip the egg yolk and replace with Dijon Mustard. You can also replace mayonnaise and make a coriander chutney to use as dressing.

This Bread is sooo comforting! Making Wraps/ Shawarmas  or dipped in Hummus. Even with your favorite curries.

Sheermal Recipe – The Saffron Scented Regal Persian Bread

Sheermal Recipe
 
Sheermal is a delicately rich saffron scented flat bread, made soft with the use of ghee (clarified butter). The use of the saffron makes it a Regal Item and it is great with most  Tandoori Style Recipes. I love it with Kadai Chicken.

The literal meaning of Sheermal – is Milk Bread, and it is the incorporation of the lightly sugared milk that gives the bread a hint of sweetness.
