May Day A Photo : Day 9 : A Snack

It was December of 2010.We had a late night party one Friday.

The after effect of that was I woke up at 8 am with a start, the next day, as it suddenly dawned that it was the Parent Teacher Meet at the Aaryan’s school.

Got ready in a jiffy and then woke the kid and pestered him to get ready too. In the meanwhile, lined up the work for the maids and a glass of milk for the kid and by 8.45 am, the kid and I were out of the home.

Fortunately we were very early at the school, so could meet the teacher and discuss/share all the queries and progress at length.

After finishing the meeting at school, as soon as I sat in the car in peace, my tummy gave a big loud growl. It was its way of telling that I had not even had my ‘bed’ tea and was starving!

Immediately, I called up hubby who was enjoying the highlights of some very old cricket match at home and told him to prepare something to eat for us. Now, these are the perks of having a partner who is passionate about cooking, who can create magic in the kitchen at a moment’s notice, any time. Of course, you need to excuse the mess that’s created along with the magic!

When we reached home, the first sight that hit my eyes was the beautifully laid plates for us on the dining table.


This is the Double Decker 3C Sandwich Pakora!

It is innovated by hubby!

And here’s the secret recipe for that…

For Batter
· Gram Flour (Besan) : 1 cup
· Aniseed (Ajwain) : 1/2 tsp
· Cumin Seeds (Jeera) : 1/2 tsp
· Fennel Seeds (Saunf) : 1/2 tsp
· Turmeric Powder : 1/4th tsp
· Red Chilli Powder to taste
· Salt to taste
· Water

For Filling
· Cheese Spread : 3 Tbsp
· Chive (onion) : 1 finely chopped
· Chilli (green) : 2 finely chopped.

Other Ingredients
· Bread : 6 slices cut into triangles
· Oil for frying


  1. Mix all the ingredients of the batter to form a batter of thick consistency.
  2. Whisk all the 3 Cs of the filling too.
  3. Apply a layer of the filling in between the 2 bread slices.
  4. Heat oil in a pan.
  5. Dip bread sandwich in the batter and fry till crisp on medium flame.
  6. Serve the Double Decker 3C Sandwich Pakora hot with green chutney or tomato sauce.

No points for guessing, the Double Decker 3C Sandwich Pakora tasted YUM which we gobbled up in minutes!
