Hey ya’ll, hope you are having a great week. Mine has been relaxing but I am still ready and eagerly waiting for the weekend to arrive, so we can just Netflix and Chill 😉 We finished the Season 4 of Orange is the New Black, and in my opinion it was like whoa!!! Not only was it better than the last season, but all the twists and turns had my heart racing, especially in the last two episodes… We’ll be starting the latest season of Bloodline next, if you haven’t watched this one, it’s a good, family drama/suspense kinds, definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. Try it!
Anyways, getting back to what this post is all about 😉 Today, I am sharing with you yet another Niti original recipe which has been inspired by Aloo tikki burgers/sandwiches available in India, or in our case, the lack of their availability here in the US! This recipe is pretty easy and can be tweaked as per your preference. It’s one of my yummy yet easy dinner options, and definitely a welcome change when you don’t want to eat the usual Dal, Sabzi, Roti but is still relatively healthy!!
So here goes:
- Hoagie Buns
- Ranch Dressing
- Coriander Chutney
- 1 red onion cut in thin slices or thin circles depending on the shape of your bread
- 1 green bell pepper cut in thin slices or thin circles depending on the shape of your bread
- Pepper Jack cheese slices
- Sliced Jalapenos
- Canned corn kernels, washed
- Aloo Tikkis (either you can make them at home or buy them at the store, I like the Nanak Aloo Tikki brand)
- Preheat oven to 400F (205C)
- If using Nanak Aloo Tikki brand, cook as mentioned on the box. If using homemade Aloo Tikkis, heat them on a pan to make warm/hot, be careful not to burn.
- Cut all the vegetables as desired
- Slice the bread in half
- Line a baking tray with aluminium foil, and lay the sliced bread on it. Put a slice of cheese on the buns and bake for 5 mins or till the bread is crisp and the cheese melted.
- Once the bread with the cheese on it is ready, take it out of the oven (be careful, it is hot!). On the inside of the crisp bun without the cheese, evenly spread coriander chutney and ranch together. Mix it on the bun if you want.
- Now put the Aloo Tikki patties on the side with the melted cheese, making sure it is evenly placed to cover the entire side of the bread.
- On top of the Aloo Tikki place all the cut veggies keeping in mind not to fill too much as it would be difficult to eat and all the fillings will start falling out when you bite into it.
- Now close the bun and press lightly to settle the fillings in the sub. Secure with a toothpick so it doesn’t fall apart. Make sure to keep the toothpick tall so it’s easily visible when eating and also let the folks you are serving know that there are toothpicks. Better safe than sorry!
- Serve with chips and drink of your choice 🙂 and Enjoy!
This sub can be made with assorted fillings, as your heart desires. So feel free to get creative!!
Try it out and let me know how you liked it 🙂 I would love to hear!
