Past week we have been gorging on Mediterranean food. Made whole wheat Pita bread using Sanjeevkapoor’s recipe. They turned out quite good with ~ 80% puffing rate! Stuffed it with Falafel from the recipe here and topped it with Nupur’s Tahini sauce.
This was just a prelude to the party that we had to host. For the party I made some Pita bread stuffed with smoked vegetables (Lebanese smoked vegetable sandwich) and topped with a yoghurt-mustard dip both recipes from Nita Mehta’s mini cookbook ‘Low cal snacks’. This was a huge hit with the guests. I smoked the veggies on a charcoal fired grill.
The other items on the menu were Green Chana kebabs adapted from Ranjit Rai’s Tandoor-The great Indian Barbecue served with a spicy mint chutney, grilled white onions, skewered cheese and fruits (without grilling) glazed with ginger-brown sugar syrupand some delectable eggless dark Chocolate- Orange Mousse from Aparna’s recipe.
Thank you all the lovely recipe owners for making my party a hit! 🙂
Here’s the recipe for the Lebanese Smoked vegetable sandwichesadapted from Nita Mehta’s book:
Smoked veggies of your choice chopped (I used Red, Yellow bell pepper, mushrooms) ;all smoked directly on a charcoal fired grill.
Tomatoes smoked, skin removed and chopped (remove the seeds and the pulp)
Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) smoked/grilled and cubed (use the soft variety, I used Amul paneer)
