Easy Fish Tikka Sandwich

Today’s lunch for Cherie, was a fish tikka sandwich, made with leftover tikka we had ordered in the night before. Most such dishes don’t taste as nice the next day, so into a sandwich it went. Some of you may wonder why I’m sharing such simple ideas. That’s just why – for the ideas. Some of us have experience, while others don’t have a great deal of it, and hesitate before trying new stuff in the kitchen. Recipes like these are more like encouragement to experiment, than recipes per se.

Instructions
  1. Mash the fish tikka into a smooth-ish paste, depending on how you like it. I suggest leaving it somewhat coarse.
  2. Butter one slice of bread.
  3. Place the mashed tikkas on buttered side.
  4. Spread the mashed tikka across surface of bread.
  5. Place half the onions on the tikkas; spread across.
  6. Place other slice of bread on top.
  7. Grill with a little oil brushed across the surface of the bread. Serve hot.
Recipe Notes
  1. Always serve grilled sandwiches placed at an angle to each other and as far as possible, never flat on a plate. The steam under the sandwich will make the bottom end soggy.
  2. Consider reusing sachets of ketchup in the house for such applications instead of using ketchup from a bottle or waiting to use the sachets when travelling.
  3. Sachets on the platter also give the platter a fast-food outlet feel, that may encourage your kids to eat what's on their plates.
