Cafe Spice's new refrigerated Naan Toasties are a solution for those looking to indulge in the bold flavors of Indian street food without buying a plane ticket. These convenient, on-the-go sandwiches combine the comfort of a grilled cheese with authentic Indian flavors, fresh ingredients, gooey, melted cheese and crispy Naan bread.
Inspired by Cafe Spice's Culinary Director, Chef Hari Nayak's childhood memories and recent visits to India, Naan Toasties emulate one of his all-time favorites - an Indian grilled cheese sandwich known as a "Mumbai Toastie." Naan Toasties are ready to enjoy in a matter of minutes and are available at all Whole Foods Markets North Atlantic locations, Fresh Thyme and Gelson's Markets. The three varieties include:
- Chutney Chicken Naan Toastie: Juicy pieces of chicken are smothered in a tangy cilantro-mint chutney, then nestled between two hearty pieces of Naan, and topped with a layer of cheddar jack cheese.
- Cauli Tikka Naan Toastie: Cauliflower is roasted with tandoori spices, tossed with a tangy tikka masala sauce, topped with cheddar jack cheese, and cushioned between two perfectly grilled crusty Naan slices.
- Chicken Tikka Naan Toastie: Creamy chicken and the zest of the tikka masala are complemented by oozy melted cheddar jack cheese, all held together by crispy, crusty slices of Naan.
