Sandwiches are truly my weakness - I can have it anytime , anywhere. More so after moving to Mumbai (my current city) where the variety stumps you thoroughly, and is available starting at just half a dollar (USD). The combinations that goes into these sandwiches are mind blowing : Cheese, veggies, Schezwan varieties that you grab and eat on the go ! And what better incentive than to host Priya's Healthy Diet Event series with "Sandwiches" that goes on floors today ! Thanks Priya, for this wonderful opportunity :)
Before we proceed, a little trivia about the sandwich which celebrates its 250th year of existence (thats a longggg time for any dish to survive and yet be famous, dont you think??)
A sandwich is a light snack prepared by placing different kinds of foods between two pieces of bread. The pieces of bread in a sandwich are referred to as slices or sheets of bread. The snack is thought to have been made first for the Earl of Sandwich, hence the name. A sandwich is not limited to a single layer of filling between two pieces of bread. It can have more than one layers of filling and bread. Each layer of filling is commonly referred to as a "deck". For instance, a single decker sandwich would be the standard two slices of bread and one layer of filling. A double decker sandwich will have three slices of bread with two layers of fillings. A sandwich with only one slice of bread is called an open sandwich or an open-face sandwich. The filling is placed on top of the bread. An open sandwich is often eaten with a knife and fork, although it can be picked up and eaten by hand.
Another form of sandwich is the toasted sandwich. The toasted sandwich can be made from slices of toast instead of bread or the sandwich is toasted whole in an oven or a sandwich presser. Sandwiches made with different types of bread might be given unique names. A panini, for example, is usually a sandwich on a small roll or loaf which is pressed between two heavy, heated grill plates. Sandwiches can also be called by many other names in different parts of the world such as 'grinder', 'sub', 'hoagie' and 'wedge'. (Source - Wikipedia)
