The world of Italian sandwiches consists of heavenly bread-based creations like Panini, Brochette and Crostini. Italians include these recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, party foods, and delicious desserts. In other words, perfect indulgences for any time of the day.
To make Panini sandwiches, the loaf is cut horizontally and filled with pesto, salami, ham, cheese or other food and served warm after having been pressed by a warming grill. Pesto traditionally consists of crushed garlic, basil, and European pine nuts blended with olive oil.
Here is the Indian version of the Panini sandwich. Pesto is replaced by green coriander chutney. Non-vegetarian ingredients are replaced by potato-corn fillings. Cheese is indeed needed. Finally, the taste of sandwich depends on the quality and quantity of cheese. So here it is, the modified recipe…
