Snacks in a sandwich

Crispy pulses in a sandwich

Tiny finger food

It can’t be helped, me sweeping everything from the snacks to the spice section in Mustafa. It also didn’t help that it was a Thursday evening when the crowd was thin and the inviting aisles were spilling every sort of snacks imaginable in full view before my eyes. Some, I didn’t even know they exist!

One of the exotic snack that is possibly found only in Mustafa is this assortment of pulses. It looks good in theory until I tried to eat the tiny bits of puffed beans with the hand. This is no finger food! Eating them by the spoonful seems way wrong either, so I did the next best thing.

The bean snack found its way in between 2 slices of smoked cheese and 4 pieces of shaved ham. The  2 slices of 12 grain wholemeal bread sealed the deal and made it look a lot healthier than it was.

I felt I was eating the whole world – it’s an amalgam of east, west and something in between. If only the world is like this – coming together for a better good …

OK, you get my drift. But seriously, ham cheese sandwich with a tangy, spicy, crunchy filling is really something. This 200g pack at $1.70 is going to make lots of sandwiches so I have better start thinking beyond ham and cheese.

Gotta go. Lots of thinking to do.


  1. What a great idea! Some crunch adds texture to the sandwich, not to mention the exotic flavors.

  2. its been a long time since I last visited Mustafa. Seeing your loots, I am tempted to drop by. unique sandwiches i must say. I am sure my adventurous hub and kids will love this.
