Sesame Fingers || Sesame Toast

Spread the love

Veg sesame fingers recipe – an Indo Chinese starter snack that I got inspired to make after having it in one of the well known Chinese restaurants in Kolkata. Their sesame toast is a killer. I could not make the way like theirs, but we were satisfied with the result.

Moreover, Veg sesame fingers is my family favourite now I make them at almost all my house parties. In fact, I make sesame fingers every time my kids bring their friends for night outs or stayovers. This is the perfect snack for midnight snacking and early breakfast when they have to rush for their school/college.

This sesame snack is the best Tiffen snack ever. It is crunchy, tasty and the best part is it tastes good even when cold too.

What is Indo- Chinese food?

Indian Chinese vs Authentic Chinese

The fusion version of Chinese food bears little resemblance to the authentic cuisine of China. Similar to how Indian food varies from one region to the next, Chinese food is diversified as well. While Cantonese cuisine is sweet, Sichuan is spicy and Shangdong is crispy and tangy. The most common culinary styles in Indian Chinese include Szechwan which is a fiery red sauce and Manchurian which is a sweet and salty brown sauce. And with its fiery flavours, Indian Chinese cuisine is now taking the world by storm.
