The whole house is permeated with the flavour of this home-made special sandwich masala...Though so many varieties are available in the market, nothing to beat this. You must remember to make this in small quantities so that it does not lose its freshness and aroma.
Often in so many food joints, I have seen them sprinkle some magic powder over the sandwiches.....and have rattled my brain what could be in, thanks to Tarla Dalal...I have  discovered and mastered the secret recipe!!! And, instantaneously, I want to share it with my dear blog readers!!!
Don't commit the mistake of adding too much of this masala, thinking it will add flavour to the sandiwch..........that will become so pungent and over powering...this must be really added like a precious, magic very tiny quantities...
For those who love sandwiches(I am one), sandwiches become tastier and tangier.
And any left over portion of the masala powder  should be refrigerated to retain its freshness and flavour.
The usage of various spices in this masala powder helps rectify  digestive disorders, improves hunger and....makes us eat a sandwich more!!!
