Sesame fingers are one of the most favorite snacks in chinese cuisine. This recipe calls for sliced bread, so if you have leftover bread, this is a delicious way to use them up. Shredded veggies are used as a topping on the bread and then batter-fried. These are then cut into strips and served, hence the name. These fingers make a great snack when your kids get back from school or even as finger food in a party. You can try adding paneer or tofu along with the veggies as a variation, but the sesame seeds are a must, as they add a nice crunchiness to this snack. Enjoy!
