Hey foodies! Bringing you back to the food heaven with our second recipe in The Taste Palate- where we talk all things food. As said by the great novelist, George Bernard Shaw, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” Food is everyone’s best friend. So, lets Keep Calm and eat Food.
I have been indulging in a lot of cooking and baking lately. As I earlier said, we are all being chefs and feeling like a master chef sitting inside our homes. And with the extension of the lockdown, you might be missing food from cafes, tea stalls, road-side stalls, and all the junk. And here I am, to rescue you with a new Sandwich recipe that tastes heavenly. I believe the love for sandwiches is something which is forever and traditionally seen, the simplest sandwich is the bread butter which mothers usually gave us when we were running late for school.
