Oh well, who said you could make sandwiches with only buns and breads? Here is a super-duper, totally innovative sandwich made with the all-time favourite south Indian snack, the Medu Vada!

The Medu Vada is cut into two halves horizontally and sandwiched with a mouth-watering mixture of sautéed veggies and onions seasoned with peppy spice powders like garam masala and pav bhaji masala. A generous garnish of coriander gives the filling a wonderful aroma, while a dash of ginger and garlic heightens the flavour of this Medu Vada Tava Sandwich. Enjoy it hot and fresh.
