Some of my vegetarian friends got confused it with Ham Sandwiches when the saw, but when they tasted it they loved it 🙂 So it seems good vegetarian mock-meat sandwiches 😉


  1. Hi Sapna, Lotus roots are basically Kamal-Kakdi as we call in India, it is normally available in most food stores, and you can get smoked cheese slices too 🙂
