I love this recipe .. so good. I used the filling inside pastry sheets to make patties as an appetizer. They were a hit. I think I used a regular onion instead of spring onions.
Great sandwiches Chari! Took them for my birthday celebration picnic and we really enjoyed them. I did not toast these as carrying them would make the bread soft anyway. Omitted the chilli because I spread some green coriander-chilli chutney on the bread slices to keep them moist. DH, DS, DMIL, DFIL and Dme;) enjoyed them immensely! Thank you! BTW instead of cake I cut your sandwiches :) Fay
In the words of my DH - GOOD STUFF. He loved it and I couldn't keep him away from the plate when it was cooling. Don't have a toaster oven so I broiled the sandwiches in the oven. This is going to be had again and again for an easy, quick summer dinner - thanks!!!
