Submarine Sandwich


BM # 6 Day 4

For the fourth day of marathon I have chosen Submarine Sandwiches.These are very popular in America,well with all these food chains coming up all over the world ..they have gained popularity here in India as well.These are oblong rolls ,split lengthwise or cut into a’v’ or sometimes even scooped out.A variety of fillings,cheese and sauces make this into a complete meal.These are ideal for packed lunch,travel or picnics.....can be served hot or cold.
The normal sub has layers of veggies and cheese n sauces on top..but I have chopped all veggies finely ,added all sauces and stuffed this with a layer of sliced cheese.This makes it easier to eat ..without the children dropping those cucumbers and tomatoes...besides sometimes the children open up the sub and want to remove  a particular veggy...this way they will eat it all.

What we need.....

1..................... french loaf
1 cup............. mixed veg
1 cup............ mayonnaise(I used readymade)
1/4 cup..........thousand island dressing
Salt to taste
Pepper
Chilly flakes
Herbs of your choice
Cheese slices

This could include...
Cabbage finely chopped
Onion finely chopped
Cucumbers grated
Carrots grated
Capsicum finely chopped
Olives finely chopped or as it is
Jalapenoes finely chopped(for home made jalapenoes..check here)
Tomatoes.(remove pulp) finely chopped
Mix veggies and mayo,dressing ,salt,pepper and prepare the stuffing.

Thousand Island Dressing

½ cup......... thick low fat curd
1tsp.............musturd pwd
3tsp............ ketchup
1tsp........... chilly sauce
2 tsp.......... onion
2 tsp.......... capsicum
½ tsp .........chopped green chilly

Salt to taste
Blend in a mixer to form a smooth paste.

How to go about
