One of the earliest known printed recipes for an actual egg salad sandwich was in the 1896 edition of The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book written by Fannie Farmer. It has become an American sandwich staple since then and we’ve made it even better. We’ve added our SugarRoti Egg Nu Spice blend, and a few fresh ingredients, to create our SugarRoti egg salad, a contemporary, healthy update to an old classic, also known in India as egg masala. Simple and delicious.
Enjoy on sliced ciabatta, sourdough or any bread of your choice, over a bed of greens, with a roti (also known as chapati – a round flatbread from India) or by itself.
