Tuna Sandwich with Pineapple Salad


Snow started pouring from early hours of the morning today continuing throughout the day. The entire town of Perrysburg is now buried under ankle deep snows. The view is amazing outside at night with the street lights reflecting on snows diffusing a beautiful glow across the sky making it appear brighter than normal. I will post some snaps as soon as the snow falling stops.


Tonight we were in mood for having sandwiches. No cooked item being present at home, I had a lot to cook for tomorrow; hence I planned of making these quick tuna sandwiches for dinner. These sandwiches are very easy to put together, so easy even my husband can make them :) Seriously, all of you wanting their husbands to attain a shade of decency in cooking may goad them into preparing sandwiches, that way you would get some time off for relaxation while your hubby stays busy making a meal for you. What say!!

Ingredients :( make 8 sandwiches)                             Cooking time: 30-40 minutes
ü  222 gm tuna fish flakes
ü  16 slices of white bread
ü  2 heaped tbsp frozen plain yogurt (beaten)
ü  2 tbsp grated cheddar cheese
ü  Salt to taste
ü  Black pepper, according to taste
ü  1 tsp paprika
ü  Butter for spreading
ü  2 eggs
ü  1/2 cup milk
ü  1/2 tsp kashmiri red mirch
ü  White oil
For Pineapple Salad:
ü  2 cups of diced pineapple
ü  1 tbsp granulated sugar
ü  Salt to taste
ü  Black pepper, taste wise
ü  1/2 dried mint flakes
1) Mix together tuna fish flakes, cheese, yogurt, salt, black pepper and paprika. Press a small round steel container on the bread slices to cut round shapes as shown in the pic:
2) Spread butter on one side of each bread slice, put tablespoon of tuna mixture in the middle smoothing the top and cover with another slice. Press firmly keeping the sandwich between your palms.
3) Beat eggs, milk, a pinch of salt and kashmiri red mirch into smooth mixture. Just like you do while cooking French toast, same way dip the tuna sandwich into the egg mixture and shallow fry in hot oil.
4) For the pineapple salad, mix the ingredients, as mentioned, together. Serve the tuna sandwich hot with pineapple salad.
