Own an OTG? Make these 5 easy vegetarian recipes
Since many restaurants are functioning minimally due to COVID-19, we have been missing out on a lot of delicacies. So tandoori aloo or your favorite kebabs seem to be out of reach now. But worry not! If you own an Oven Toaster Griller, aka OTG, you can recreate these from the comfort of your home. Here are some vegetarian recipes you can start with.

Ingredients: Refined flour (250 grams), butter (200 grams), powdered sugar (150 grams), edible soda (1/4 teaspoon), and vanilla essence (1/4 teaspoon). Beat butter and sugar together.

Bake at 170°C for 25 minutes.
Recipe number 2: 'Tandoori aloo' to have with tea
