Sesame Triangles

It is fun to serve simple food in style, and this recipe is a perfect example of that. 

Few weeks back, we had our friends over and I presented a platter of this easy appetizer. It was a hit... everyone loved it and with some bean sprouts served on the side, gave some healthy crunch to it.My homemade schezwan sauce spiced it up to suit our palate.

This is not a new recipe; if you are grown up in India, specially in Mumbai, this is a very common Indo-Chinese appetizer by the name of 'Gold Coin'. Bread as a base in normally cut in a circular shape using a cookie cutter, veggies dough is spread on it, dipped in sesame seeds, and then deep fried. My recipe is almost the same, except that I cut the bread into triangles to avoid any wastage. You can make these in shapes of your choice!

Ingredients (Serves 4-5)
4 slices of bread of your choice
2 cups of minced veggies of your choice (onions, bell pepper, cabbage, carrots, green beans)
2 cloves garlic 
1/2 inch ginger
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper powder
1 tbsp. corn starch
2-3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4- 1/2 cup sesame seeds 
Oil fry frying
  • Mince all veggies of your choice with garlic cloves and ginger. Remove in a bowl. Add salt and pepper. Mix and let the veggies rest for 15 minutes.
  • Gently remove the sides of the bread and cut into fourths. Leave it aside.
  • Add corn starch and all purpose flour to veggies and mix well. It should form a soft and sticky dough.
  • Spread around 1+1/2 tbsp. mixture on each piece of bread. Spread it evenly so that it sticks well to the bread piece. 
  • Dip veggie side into sesame seeds and gently press for sesame seeds to stick on it.
  • Deep fry each triangle in medium hot oil OR spray some oil and bake in 400F oven for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Serve with spicy schezwan sauce.
