Well like the name suggests this is nothing like a regular salami. Salami is actually cured, feremented and air-dried meat shaped like a cylinder. Originating from Italy, its now very popular with different varieties across Europe.
Now coming to this elegant creation, its super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. And due to the similarity in its look to the original salami, we borrowed the name. Well another interesting fact is that this creation is in the family for almost 20 years and has won many prizes in many cooking competitions.
So waste no time and definitely give this a try!!!
