If there is one thing we adore about sandwiches, it is the room it offers us to be our creative best. Did you know, according to a popular legend, sandwich was invented on a special demand of John Montagu - the 4th Earl of Sandwich - in the 16th century. The English nobility was very fond of gambling. One day, he asked his chef to make him something that does not require him to lift his hands for cutlery, so that he could focus on his card table. And thus, was born our very dear sandwich. As long as you have two slices of bread, some sauces, smears and veggies- you can make the most decadent sandwich. The no-fuss snack has evolved with time and has seen many local variations, one being India's special tawa sandwich.
