For the most part I agree, but at the same time we do seem to be taking notes from the US food competitions. I've seen some ridiculous "challenges" that greasy spoons offer, you'd have a coronary just thinking about trying it.

I was slightly disappointed by the video, mostly because how at the start (and end) you see plenty of other interesting looking ingredients, and I thought, "so we're going to use everything there in a sandwich? How will that work?" Then it turned out to just be a few vegetables and cheese.

 

Agreed - we certainly are going down the American route for portion sizes, and so forth. It's a sad state of affairs! That said I've been known to eat a large Domino's pizza all by myself in one sitting so I'm not exactly in a position to cast aspersions! :)

if I have to choose between a McDonald and this sandwich, I will choose the sandwich without thinking. They prepared the sandwich with fresh veggies and species, something that I always love in a sandwich. I do not eat beef or pork. Sometimes I eat chicken just for the iron and protein.

If anyone wants to make it and was wondering what the 'green stuff' was:

 

1 small bunch fresh mint

2 small bunch fresh coriander

2-3 green chilli's 

1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Optionally you can add

 

half a small onion

1 garlic clove

1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger

 

you just blend them together. main thing is to get 1 part mint to 2 parts coriander, make sure you only use a small amount, i made it before and put way too much in and ended up with loads of the stuff!

This is what you call a salad with bread.

it's not pepper, it's 'Masala', which is a spice mix, it's usually a different mix depending on what it's used for. it's most likely 'chaat masala' which a recipe to make can easily be found online.

Maybe not to English standards or even American standards, but it is definitely big for Indian standards! :)


 

It's just vegetables, nothing is going to happen! If it was stuffed with meat, then maybe.

 

It's pretty big by any Standard. I agree on the contents with the exception of the Cheese. That's a lot of cheese (saturated fat) and a lot of bread, but it depends on the bread how bad it will be.

 

It's very big considering how spicy Indian food is. That sauce is probably kickin' and if that was curry or anything close there was a lot of it. I'd eat 1/3 of it on before a workout. That's a lot of bread.

Consider it a grilled cheese! Looks interesting. Grilled Cheese & Tomato, plus a bunch of spice and other veggies. I'd eat it, once.

If that's what's in the sauce, I bet it tastes REALLY good. That's still a lotta butta & bread tho.

That looks like something some gluten with bad dental hygiene form the U.S.A. would eat.

 

If we're going to throw sterotypes around, I thought the English were the ones with bad teeth....

 

You're right, that sandwhich is so small to us, it'd be considered a snack sometime in the morning before lunch... :rolleyes:

Needs more beef, not sure that would go down well with the Indians though.

 

Also, holy christ the spelling here is bad, you do realise what the red line underneath words is? Your browser is trying to teach you how to spell, let it.
