I can't say I am big egg fan. I really have to crave for them to make something out of them. My husband on the other hand loves them. So when he saw me crave for some eggs yesterday, he looked excited. I usually make his favorite egg curry or simply a yummy omelet. But I was feeling adventurous this time. It kind of upset him, but if I was eating eggs, they had to be absolutely delicious.
I wouldn't eat an egg salad sandwich if you paid me to do it. (Well, if it involves 6 digit figures then it's a different story). But I wasn't feeling like making a curry in this scorching heat and omelet was just too simple. So I decided to Indianize the infamous egg salad sandwich. And I can't complain about the outcome. Simple ingredients, easy and quick...a bonus point was it was healthy too. Eliminating the mayo was probably why I liked it so much.
spiced egg salad sandwich with avocado
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped fine (you can even choose to do egg white only salad)
1 avocado, chopped fine
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 cloves of garlic, finely minced
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper per taste
handful of baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
6 slices of a hearty bread (I used the 12 grain bread)
In a large bowl add the first 7 ingredients and mix really well. The avocado will work as the mayo in this sandwich.
Toast your bread lightly and apply some butter. Put on a generous heap of the mix. Top with cheese, spinach and the second slice of bread. You can also grill the sandwich for the melted cheese effect.
