Wilted Spinach Sandwich, Cabbage Paruppusili, Spicy Chicken

Wilted Spinach Sandwich, Cabbage Paruppusili, Spicy Chicken

While the combination of Wilted Spinach Sandwich, Cabbage Paruppusili, and Spicy Chicken probably sounds odd, the meal was anything but.

Sometimes leftovers make a wonderful dinner platter. Small amounts of Cabbage Paruppusili and Spicy Chicken chunks in tomato-based gravy leftover from a weekend lunch made a simple yet filling meal that night, with a quick sandwich to round it out.

Wilted Spinach Sandwich
  1. Wilt some baby spinach in olive oil, splash some pomegranate red wine vinegar off heat, toss in some feta and capers, allow to marinate till ready to serve.
  2. With kids around, String Cheese (Mozzarella sticks) is always handy. I like to cut up the string cheese into smaller chunks and microwave them for about 30 - 35 seconds (depending on the microwave power level) so it melts an stars browning at the edges. Makes a perfect cheese layer for sandwiches. (can use any favorite cheese or leave it out)
  3. When ready, toast the bread slices, squeeze out excess liquid from the marinated spinach, add the melted cheese, serve right away

Wilted Spinach Sandwich, Cabbage Paruppusili, Spicy Chicken

Cabbage Paruppusili: The recipe is the same as any other paruppusili like Green Beans Paruppusili - substitute cabbage for green beans.

Spicy Chicken:
  1. Make a paste of onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, dry red chilies
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F
  3. Marinate the chicken chunks in the masala paste for about 10 minutes (longer if desired)
  4. Combine the chicken chunks and the masala paste, some salt, brown sugar, and some Frank's Red Hot™ sauce and bake in 400°F oven for about 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
